Everton rejects United bid for Fellaini, Baines

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Manchester United manager David Moyes is trying to sign Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines from Everton but his former club has rejected the approach.

After reports of a joint bid of 28 million pounds ($43 million) for the players, Everton said it had ''been rejected out of hand.''

The club said the offer was ''derisory and insulting.''

Moyes signed Fellaini for Everton in 2008 for a fee that has already reached 17 million pounds ($27 million). The 25-year-old Belgium midfielder's Goodison Park contract runs for another three years.

Baines, the 28-year-old England defender who joined Everton for 6 million pounds ($9.4 million) from Wigan in 2007, is under contract until 2015.

Moyes moved from Everton to United in the close season after Alex Ferguson retired.
