Betting shop services learned that Roberto Martinez, new Everton manager, said that the club received no more offers for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
Price per head sportsbooks saw that a few weeks ago, Baines, England left-back, was reportedly the subject of an offer from Manchester United while Arsenal was linked with Fellaini, Belgium midfielder, and many people with a betting site were wondering what would happen with these players.
But betting shop services found out that when he was asked if there was any recent offers for the players, 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.
And pay per head services can’t wait to see how the team progresses.
“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.”
When he was asked if he felt surprise that United did not give Baines a better offer, Martinez added: “No, the last concern I have is what other clubs do.
“I can say I have been really impressed with the togetherness of this group. I can see that in training every day and it makes me proud.”
And regarding whether he expects to have kept all his key personnel by the time the Premier League season begins, Martinez said: “You should never ask a manager that!
“The modern game does not allow a manager to have that control.
“But I’m very excited, the squad is very strong. We have some good youngsters who I feel can come in and help the first team.
And betting shops can imagine how excited the manager must feel.
