BBC Sport - Roberto Martinez laughs off Ross Barkley speculation

Martinez laughs off Barkley speculation

Everton boss Roberto Martinez says he will not be selling Ross Barkley in the January transfer window amid reports of a forthcoming £50m bid for the England midfielder.

Martinez says he will be looking to finish the month with a stronger squad - and that he does not need to sell stars such as Barkley or England left-back Leighton Baines.

When asked about a rumoured £50m transfer of Barkley to Manchester United, Martinez jokes he will not be leaving "on loan".
