Roberto Martinez has reiterated that there have been no bids for Leighton Baines or Marouane Fellaini.

Speculation over the pair has lingered all summer and most recently, Wednesday's media claimed Fellaini was the subject of a bid from Manchester United - but the Everton manager said there has been no contact.

He said: “There are no bids. When you read that someone is interested in someone, it doesn't mean there is a bid on the table.

“Marouane has been working really hard. Leighton Baines has been working really hard for the team and that's all that matters.

“Headlines in the media happen at this time of the season unfortunately but it won't distract me from the work we have to do. I'm not bothered at all.

“It is speculation in the media and you'll never stop that. I've said from day one as a manager you only concentrate on working hard. I don't mind having my players grabbing headlines. That's a good story because it means they've been doing well and performing well.

“I'm only concentrating on having as strong a squad as possible for the start of the season. That's all my concern is.”
