Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez refuses to confirm or deny interest in Leeds United striker Luciano Becchio.

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has refused to be drawn on speculation linking the club with a move for Leeds United striker Luciano Becchio.

Rumours of a possible exit from Elland Road have been rumbling after the Argentine was left out of the squad that defeated Birmingham City 2-1 in their FA Cup third-round replay last night.

"I am not going to mention any names," Martinez said in a press conference.

"We have got a little bit of room to bring one or two players. We are looking for the right player, somebody that can help us.

"I will never go into a position of mentioning names of other players that are involved with other football clubs. I don't think it is respectful."

Becchio has netted 20 goals in all competitions for Leeds this season.
