Latics focus on games not speculation

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez insists he and his players will not be distracted by media speculation in the run-up to the re-opening of the transfer window.

The Latics are currently languishing in the Premier League relegation zone and are believed to be fighting to retain the services of star duo Charles N'Zogbia and Hugo Rodallega, both of whom have been linked with moves away from the DW Stadium next month.

The loss of either would be a blow to the club's hopes of retaining their Premier League status for another season, but with key games against Wolves, Arsenal and Newcastle to come over the festive period, Martinez is focused only on getting points on the board.

Responding to the speculation, the Spaniard told Sky Sports News: "At the moment there is no real truth in it, the window hasn't opened yet.

"We are not going to stop any rumours or any media speculation. If there is anything else the fans will be the first ones to know.

"The players are very aware that the games that we have got in this period are vital for our season and that is where the focus and concentration goes.

"The focus goes to the games that we have got ahead of us. Sunday [against Wolves] is a massive, massive game, and it would be a big mistake for us to look ahead and think about players who could come in or who could leave.

"Every point in the Premier League is so important and our focus goes to Sunday, nothing else.''
