Wigan Athletic manager Owen Coyle has said that the club have not received any bids for the their key players.

James McCarthy and Callum McManaman are just two of the names to be linked with Premier League moves before the end of the transfer window.

"We've not had any enquiries let alone any bids for our players," Coyle told talkSPORT.

"We've got hugely talented players. That goes without saying, but we want to keep this group together.

"Long may that continue but ultimately, with the way the transfer window works, that can change at any time. That's something we'll prepare ourselves for and see how it goes."

Coyle has made a number of new signings including Grant Holt and Scott Carson, as Wigan look to win promotion back to the Premier League.

"We want to add to it," he said. "I'm chasing a player I certainly think has fantastic ability and quality, whether it comes to fruition, only time will tell."

Wigan began their Championship season today with a 4-0 victory over Barnsley at Oakwell.
