Valencia "fine" at Wigan amid transfer speculation

Luis Antonio Valencia has insisted he knows nothing of a possible move to Manchester United and claims to be happy at Wigan.

The 23-year-old midfielder has been linked with both the Barclays Premier League champions and Real Madrid after impressing in three seasons at the JJB Stadium.

Valencia, who is in Los Angeles for Ecuador's friendly against El Salvador tonight, said his agent Diego Herrera had told him nothing of a possible deal. "If I knew something, I would tell you, but now it is all speculation,'' he said. "I am comfortable and fine at Wigan.''

Valencia added that he was unhappy with the swirl of reports after Spanish newspapers claimed a £21.5million deal was in place. "Revealing these figures without confirming anything is not correct,'' he said. "I have a family to think about.''
