However, Bruce has rejected the rumours, and also quashed suggestions Michael Brown could leave the JJB Stadium before the close of the transfer window.
Bruce said in the Wigan Evening Post: "I don't know where the Carr story has come from. I can categorically say no to that one.
"I keep hearing the Brown rumour but there's nothing in it. In fact, I don't see us doing anything before the transfer window shuts.
"We need a good squad and I've only got three central midfield players."
