Roberto Martinez insists that he is completely focused on keeping Wigan Athletic in the Premier League this season.

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has claimed that he and his players are not distracted by rumours regarding their futures.

Mohamed Diame has reportedly attracted interest from Everton this week and Martinez has been linked with a move away from the DW Stadium on a number of occasions.

However, Martinez insists that the whole club are focused on the fight against relegation from the Premier League.

The Spaniard said: "I have got no time to think about that.

"Those stories are there - so be it - but I don't think we have to talk about them.

"With all these stories, as I've always said with players, if you get attention from other clubs it must be because we are doing something right."

Martinez rejected an offer to manage Aston Villa before the start of the current season.
