The Spaniard insists that there have been no developments at Goodison Park, with Manchester United hovering around star men Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that transfer activity around Goodison Park is "quiet".

The Toffees confirmed on Monday that they had rejected an "insulting" joint bid from Manchester United for star men Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.

TRANSFER TALK
6/1 Marouane Fellaini is 6/1 with William Hill to score the first goal in Everton v West Brom
With the offer coming days before the opening game of the season, Martinez has called for changes with how the transfer window works, while assuring fans that they will be informed first of any developments.

"Everything has been quiet on that front and everything has been as we inform our fans and I think that's going to be the way we deal with the window now," he told the press.

"We're still trying to be as strong as we can. If there's anything that we need to inform our fans, we will do. For now the focus has to be the games.

"I said it time after time, I think it's time for the football authorities to look into the situation. I think the transfer window is getting out of hand. It's really, really affecting the values of the league.

"I think it's affecting the human side of the players in a very, very unfair manner and it's about time we stopped the window, or we stop the official games in the middle of the window."
