Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has played down speculation linking the club with a move for in-form Leeds striker Luciano Becchio.

Martinez is also bemused by reports the Argentinian, who is reportedly valued at £4million after scoring 19 goals for the npower Championship side this season, watched Latics' FA Cup third-round replay win at Bournemouth on Tuesday.

Those rumours circulated as Becchio, 29, missed Leeds' match at Birmingham on the same night through illness. When asked about those suggestions, Martinez said: "I don't think so. If he was I didn't know about it."
