Leighton Baines has announced his retirement from football.
The former England left-back, 35, made 420 appearances for Everton after joining for £6million from Wigan in 2007.
In that time, he scored 39 goals and registered 67 assists for the Toffees.
Baines’ final match came as a 70th-minute substitute against Bournemouth on Sunday.
He wore the captain’s armband when he came on as Everton suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Bournemouth, who were relegated from the Premier League.
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti, who wanted to extend Baines’ stay by a season, said: “He has taken the decision to stop playing.
“I think every Evertonian has to be grateful to him.
“He had a fantastic career here and was a fantastic example for all his teammates.

“We would like to keep him in the club because his knowledge is very important, but in the next days he has to make a decision.
“The club is open to have him stay with us. It’s his decision. We have time to think about this.”
Baines won 30 caps for England in an 18-year career.
But he had found first-team chances limited following Lucas Digne’s £18m arrival from Barcelona in 2018.
