Speculation not shifting Wigan focus - Martinez

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez insists nobody at the club is worrying about their future past this season.

The Latics, who currently sit 17th on the league table with three matches remaining, have had their boss along with a handful of players - including Hugo Rodallega, James McCarthy and Victor Moses - all linked with a summer departure.

Martinez says the players should be chuffed that they are attracting interest but has made it clear that everybody is working together to ensure survival before they ponder their futures.

"I have got no time to think about that," said the Spaniard. "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.

"We should all be pleased, but we will never lose concentration on the job in hand.

"What we have got on our hands is one of the biggest moments in the club's history. Any story that is away from that - it is not the time and it is not important."
