Reported Manchester United transfer target Leighton Baines joins up with the England squad ahead of their World Cup qualifiers.

Everton defender Leighton Baines has reportedly joined up with his England teammates at St George's Park.

The 29-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United for the majority of the summer, although Everton manager Roberto Martinez has insisted that the full-back is not for sale.

The fact that he has travelled to meet up with the national team would suggest that a transfer is not imminent, but manager Roy Hodgson would allow him to leave the camp if the chance of a transfer materialises, according to the Daily Mail.

United are also believed to be keen on Baines's club colleague Marouane Fellaini.
