Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has cooled talk of a move for Leeds striker Luciano Becchio.
Becchio missed Leeds' FA Cup third round replay at Birmingham on Tuesday night amid suggestions he attended Wigan's clash at Bournemouth.
But, when asked if Becchio had been at Dean Court, Martinez said: "I don't think so. If he was I didn't know about it."
And the Latics boss was coy when pressed further about a move for the striker.
He said: "I am not going to mention any names. We are looking for the right player, somebody that can help us. But the focus is on the players we already have here.
"I will never go into a position of mentioning names of other players that are involved with other football clubs. I don't think it is respectful. I don't like it when people do it about our players in the middle of a season and I would never do that."
