Wigan boss Roberto Martinez denies that he is interested in signing El-Hadji Diouf.

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez had said that he is not ‘considering’ a move for former Blackburn Rovers forward El-Hadji Diouf.

The former Liverpool player has been training with the Latics after he was released from the Rovers this summer, along with out-of-contract goalkeeper Richard Kingston.

Reports suggested that the Premier League side were interested in the 30-year-old. However Martinez has been quick to dismiss the rumours.

"We have Kingson and Diouf training with us but I think it has been blown out of proportion," he said.

“I don't think we ever considered [signing Diouf]. He is a fantastic character and has had different stories and a different perception in the media but he has been a real professional and has been working hard."

Meanwhile, Wigan travel to Aston Villa this weekend in the Premier League.
