The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FOURTH ROUND -

STEVE EVANS in­sists he has not heard of any bids for Leeds cap­tain Sol Bamba amid re­ported in­ter­est from the Premier League.

New­cas­tle United and Sun­der­land are be­lieved to be in the mar­ket for the 31-year-old de­fender who ar­rived at El­land Road from Palermo last sum­mer fol­low­ing a loan spell.

Evans, who has signed Toumani Di­agouraga from Brent­ford, be­lieves re­ports of suit­ors are no more than me­dia con­jec­ture.

“Sol’s our cap­tain and he does that job with real pro­fes­sion­al­ism,” said the for­mer Rother­ham boss.

“I’m not aware of any bids in this win­dow but I can’t stop spec­u­la­tion.”
