Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan insists that Roberto Martinez's position at the club has not been undermined by his discussions with Aston Villa and Liverpool.

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has insisted that allowing Roberto Martinez to hold talks with Liverpool and Aston Villa has not undermined the Spaniard's future at the DW Stadium.

Martinez was involved in the interview processes for the vacant manager's job at Villa Park as well as the previously vacant position at Anfield.

"He was approached by Liverpool and Aston Villa and he's got to consider that because they are big clubs," Whelan told BBC Radio 5 Live. "There's nothing damaged at Wigan, that's for sure.

"I gave Roberto permission to speak to those clubs and he came back and said 'I want to stay at Wigan'. That is that for this season definitely."

At 38 years old, Martinez is currently the Premier League's youngest manager.
