Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has no plans to send out-of-favour goalkeeper Chris Kirkland out on loan.
Kirkland has found himself frozen out of things after falling behind Ali Al-Habsi in the pecking order at the DW Stadium.
A number of clubs are thought to be keen on signing the former Liverpool and Coventry shot-stopper on loan, but Martinez is keen to keep him and see him fight for the No.1 spot.
"We don't want him to go," said Martinez.
"Chris has a fighting mentality and wants to be No.1 - that's why I want him in the dressing room.
"If he did accept being second choice it would be time to move."
