German giants Bayern have been strongly linked with a move for the full-back after watching on several occasions this season.

The 26-year-old has been in outstanding form this season, providing seven assists for goals for Everton this season.

His performances have not gone unnoticed among Europe's top clubs, but Bains insists he is happy at Everton.

"The link with Bayern Munich was flattering because it was an unusual one, but I am only one-year into a new contract so that's the end of it," Baines told the Sunday Mirror.
