With Latics having slipped out of the Premier League, a number of high-profile departures are expected from the DW Stadium this summer.

Kone is among those being tipped to make the step back into the top flight, with the Ivorian having shone during his debut season in England.

He netted 11 times in the Premier League last season and is reported to be among those Roberto Martinez is hoping will follow him from Wigan to Everton.

Kone is, however, focused on his international commitments at present and insists he has no intention of rocking the boat by pushing for a move.

He said: "I have a contract until 2015 with Wigan and I settled very well there. It is a brilliant community football club. The chairman is fantastic.

"Yes, I want to be playing in the Premier League but it also depends on Wigan because I have a contract with them.

"Everton? Just because the gaffer is in charge makes the link stronger but, to be honest, I don't know what will happen. After the international games I will know more."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
