Martinez: Baines talk doesn't worry me

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has said he is not fazed by speculation surrounding the future of left-back Leighton Baines and just wants him to continue his good form.

Everton were able to keep hold of Leighton Baines.
Baines was a United target during the summer.

Baines warns Barkley

Baines attracted interest from Manchester United throughout the summer as former Everton boss David Moyes attempted to persuade the defender to join him at Old Trafford.

However, Martinez said it was only natural a player such as Baines, who impressed in England's 2-0 win over Poland at Wembley on Tuesday, would be a target for elite clubs and described him as "an icon" at Goodison Park.

"As a manager, the only thing that concerns me is to see Leighton enjoying his football and being consistent with his performances," he said.

"You're not going to stop the rumours and the talk -- that comes with a player performing so well. You are always going to get that. So I'm not concerned about that.

"All I want is Leighton to be proud of being an Everton footballer, carry on enjoying his football and carry on performing in the manner that he's been doing. That's the only thing I want.

"Leighton is an icon for us. He's not just a top left-back, he's an Evertonian. It is about what he represents to us. But throughout the world, footballers have become big assets, and that's not going to change."

Baines has 20 months remaining on his contract at Goodison Park.
