Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has rejected out of hand a bid made by Sunderland for young midfield star Lee Cattermole saying that the offer was rejected immediately because the club isn`t interested in selling Cattermole.
Martinez, speaking on the clubs official website, says that Cattermole is central to his plans and that he feels strongly about keeping hold of the young midfield man, he said:'He is a fantastic player, a leader on and off the field, and he is central to our plans going forwards. We are not interested in selling him which is why this offer was rejected immediately.'
'It is not usually our style to discuss incoming or outgoing transfers until they are completed, but we have made an exception in this case because I feel so strongly about wanting to keep hold of Lee, along with all my best players.
'He is currently on a well-earned break after his efforts with the 21s in the summer and will be reporting back to training next week. I am looking forward to working with him. He is one of many talented players we have here and I intend to keep hold of all of our best players.
'Let's forget about this now and move on.'
Nice one Bobby
