It`s being reported that Wigan Athletic have rejected a £9million bid from Blackburn Rovers for £25 million rated 20 year old midfield man James McCarthy.

The Sun claim that Rovers boss Steve Keen submitted the bid but it was laughed off by his Latics counterpart Roberto Martinez, McCarthy to Blackburn for £9 million is one of the most ridiculous pieces of speculation to come out so far this summer.

McCarthy is destined for great things in the game, if he does move from the Latics it will be to a club with title ambitions and for a lot more cash than what Blackburn have reportedly put forward. There are suggestions that the Latics are actual looking to give the Republic of Ireland an extension to his remaining three years at the DW Stadium with a significant pay rise to elevate him to one of the clubs top earners.

The boy is going nowhere
