Wigan Athletic manager Owen Coyle says that no clubs have been in contact regarding midfield star James McCarthy.

Wigan Athletic manager Owen Coyle has reiterated that there has been no approach for Irish international James McCarthy.

The 22-year-old is believed to be of interest to Everton - now under the control of former Latics boss Roberto Martinez - and Tottenham Hotspur.

Coyle has said that he would not stand in McCarthy's way should a team with Champions League prospects come knocking, but has repeatedly stated that no offers have been forthcoming.

After today's 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, he said that the situation still remains the same.

"There will always be speculation about good players but that's exactly what it is, speculation," the 47-year-old told reporters.

"I'm quite comfortable in telling you I've not had any enquiries or offers. If I did I would be the first to tell you.

"We've got good players. I wouldn't be surprised if there was interest but at the moment there's nothing to talk about."

McCarthy joined Wigan from Hamilton Academical in 2009.
