BLACKPOOL have brushed off speculation linking Alex Baptiste with a move to Wigan.

Roberto Martinez is reported to be weighing up a bid for the Seasiders defender, testing out how keen Pool are to hang on to a player entering the final year of his contract.

Wigan could offer Nouha Dicko or even Callum McManaman– both former loan stars at the seaside – in part-exchange.

However, sources at Bloomfield Road have told The Gazette that 26-year-old Baptiste is not for sale.
