Everton manager David Moyes has received no contact from Celtic concerning defender Joseph Yobo.

The Nigeria international has been linked with a season-long loan move to the Scottish Premier League giants.

Yobo, a £3.5m signing from Marseille seven years ago, has fallen down the pecking order at Goodison Park and mostly been restricted to a place on the bench since the second half of last season.

Moyes did not comment on the possibility Yobo could leave but claimed there have been no overtures from Parkhead.

Moyes, a former Celtic player, said: "There has been no contact from Celtic directly to me. If there is anything out there I have not heard it directly."
