Leighton Baines

Clubs: Wigan Athletic FC, Everton FC

• A native Liverpudlian, he had youth trials with Liverpool FC but launched his career in earnest with Wigan.

• Won two promotions in his first three seasons with the Lancashire club, helping them into the Premier League as runners-up of the Championship in 2004/05 – a season in which he also made his England Under-21 debut.

• Missed just one match as Wigan finished tenth in their debut Premier League campaign; helped them preserve their top-flight status the following season before joining Everton.

• Participated in three successive European campaigns for the Merseysiders and was handed his senior international debut in a March 2010 friendly against Egypt, but was overlooked in favour of Stephen Warnock for the 2010 FIFA World Cup squad.

• Improved his England credentials with a superb 2010/11 season, in which he played every minute for Everton in the Premier League and scored five goals, earning the club's player of the season prize; came on as a 31st-minute substitute for Cole in a UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier at home to Switzerland and started successive 2011/12 friendlies against Sweden and the Netherlands.

• Failed to make an appearance at UEFA EURO 2012 but once again excelled for his club the following season, again named the Toffees' player of the year; confirmed himself as England's first-choice left-back during the 2013/14 season and started twice during the country's group stage exit at the FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil.
