No China move for Jagielka


Phil Jagielka will not be leaving Everton in the immediate future, manager Roberto Martinez has stated.

Jagielka is contracted to Everton until the end of the 2017-18 season, but the 33-year-old has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League before their transfer window closes on February 26.

However, Martinez has made it clear that the club captain is not for sale.

"We are not in a situation to lose any players and Phil Jagielka is our club captain," Martinez told reporters on Thursday. "He has been at a good level and there is no substance in that rumour."

Reports earlier this month claimed that the club are moving closer to a £200million takeover by an American consortium led by former San Diego Padres owner John Jay Moores and fellow entrepreneur Charles Noell.

However, Martinez remained coy when asked about the possible takeover at his weekly press conference.

"There is nothing to announce. We are in a position of having a really exciting future. We have an incredible chairman who cares and loves the football club," Martinez added.

"I can guarantee every fan that the future is strong and very exciting. At the moment it is just speculation and nothing we can comment on."
