Everton boss Martinez says no fresh bids for Baines, Fellaini

Everton boss Roberto Martinez insists there's been no new offers for star pair Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.

England left-back Baines was reportedly the subject of an offer from Manchester United a few weeks ago while Arsenal are reportedly interested in Belgian midfielder Fellaini.

However, asked if there had been any recent bids for the pair, Martinez replied: "Not at all, not at all.

"I know that is not what you might want to hear but everyone here is focused on fighting for spots in the starting line-up and the competitive level in this group is impressive.

"I don't think speculation is healthy, we are just trying to become as good as we can before the transfer window closes.

"If we get clubs talking about our players we take it as compliment, because the players have been impressing and doing really well.

"We are in a great position financially and we want to start the season with the best squad we can."
