Everton manager Roberto Martinez rejects reports claiming that Manchester United are planning a £15m summer move for Seamus Coleman.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has rebuffed rumours that Manchester United are planning to launch a summer bid for defender Seamus Coleman.

Recent reports have claimed that United manager David Moyes already has an agreement with his former club to sign Coleman for £15m.

However, Martinez has rubbished the reports by insisting that Everton are eager for the 25-year-old to commit his future to the Merseyside outfit.

"It must be a different Seamus Coleman because there has been absolutely no contact," Martinez said in Thursday's press conference.

The Spaniard added: "Seamus is having a great season and hopefully he can continue those levels. We want him here for many years to come."

The Republic of Ireland international joined Everton in 2009 from Sligo Rovers.
