Martinez is being linked as David Moyes' successor at Everton.

"The club have heard nothing whatsoever,” the Latics chairman told talkSPORT.

“Everton are a super club and they know the rules and regulations, they are very mannerly and I don’t think they would ever approach Roberto before the season is over.

“Even if he’s in their minds, I know [Everton chairman] Bill Kenwright wouldn’t do anything like that.”
