Roberto Martinez dismisses speculation linking him with a move away from Wigan.

Roberto Martinez has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from Wigan Athletic this summer.

The Spaniard was rumoured to have reached an agreement with the club's owner Dave Whelan to leave the DW Stadium regardless of whether the Latics avoid relegation to the Championship.

However, Martinez moved to stamp out the reports following his team's shock 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

"I heard that and was very surprised," he said. "You wonder where that rumour is coming from. At this stage of the season there is a real fight amongst the bottom five, you feel stories can upset clubs internally.

"There is nothing true about it. I signed a new deal in the summer for an extra two years. That was my conversation with the chairman and nothing has changed since."

Wigan moved out of the drop zone following this evening's result and face a crucial away trip to Arsenal next Monday.
