Everton boss Martinez remains hopeful keeping Man Utd targets Fellaini, Baines

Everton boss Roberto Martinez reaffirmed his hope of keeping Manchester United targets Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.

Martinez fielded Baines and fellow United target Fellaini for their draw at Cardiff City, and both played 90 minutes with the close of the transfer window just two days away.

The Spaniard has made it clear he wants to keep hold of the pair, and confirmed there has been no new offer from United for them.

He said: "They are top players as you have seen today and I want to keep my top players.

"But when you are in the transfer window you are not in control of what is going to happen.

"What we want to see is Marouane and Leighton to play for Everton for many, many years, not just this transfer window.

"At the moment, the situation is the same as yesterday."
