Everton full-back Leighton Baines has "no intentions of leaving the club" despite being heavily linked with German champions Bayern Munich.Bayern have been chasing the 26-year-old for some time and watched Baines score in Everton's 2-1 win at Manchester City on Monday night.Reports in Germany suggest the Bavarians will make a £9million bid in the January window but the former Wigan man is adamant he will honour the five-year deal he signed over the summer.He told the Liverpool Daily Post: "I haven't seen too much of the speculation, I don't know too much about it. I am just concentrating on trying to play for Everton."I have just signed a new contract and I tied myself to the club in the summer and I have no intentions at the moment of leaving the club. I am not looking elsewhere and I am completely focused on what I am doing here and I have only just committed myself to the club."Bayern are in the market for a left-back with coach Louis van Gaal not convinced by Diego Contento, who has been playing there following Philipp Lahm's switch to the right.
