Gary Megson has denied reports that Sheffield Wednesday defender Mark Beevers is set for a January transfer switch to Bolton.

The 19-year-old has been at the centre of media speculation during the week, with some reports suggesting a deal had been completed, but Megson has ruled out a move for the Owls youngster.

"We're not barking up that tree," Megson joked.

"We're one of the clubs that is easy to link players with.

"People know we are in the market and have to take a chance on certain types of players - so they can't link the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea or Liverpool because it wouldn't happen.

"This time of year there are agents looking to move players on or get their client a better deal if he's coming out of contract.

"There is a game played on the green and then a completely different one played by the media."
