Wigan Athletic midfielder Wilson Palacios has shrugged off reports linking him with Manchester United.

Palacios told the Wigan Evening Post: "I don't take any notice of speculation. I'm a Wigan player and my sole desire is to get the club moving up the league.

"I hear of interest from other clubs from time to time, but I just get on with playing football.

"On one hand, it is good to hear yourself receiving praise about how you are playing and getting attention, but I just prefer to keep working hard and trying to improve.

"I don't want to rest on my laurels. As a player you should always be aiming to get better and better."
