Roberto Martinez confirms that Everton have received no offers for Ross Barkley, despite speculation.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has revealed that the club has not had any approaches for Ross Barkley.

Manchester City were reported to be lining up a move for the 20-year-old Everton midfielder come the end of the season.

However, Martinez has confirmed that there have been no approaches.

"It's a rumour and we'll leave it there. We have spoken enough in the past about potential interest and I always mention the same, we take it as a footballing compliment and we move on," the Spaniard told Sky Sports News.

"All we want from Ross now is to be able to get him fully fit and get him ready to enjoy his football and to help the team and we're looking forward to that day."

Barkley is currently injured but is ahead of schedule in recovering.
