Wigan manager Chris Hutchings has fended off transfer speculation surrounding Emile Heskey - despite the striker facing another six weeks on the sidelines through injury.

Heskey´s recent re-emergence for England has led to the suggestion he will become a target when the transfer window opens in January.

Newcastle are understood to be interested, but Hutchings said: "I haven´t heard anything about Emile being linked with other clubs. But with the way he played leading up to his injury, it is not a surprise big clubs are being linked with him."
