"I did enquire about him (Humphrys)," said Warne, himself a former Latics striker.

"That's a no. And I did try to sign him last year, that's no secret.

"Wigan have got loads of strikers but that isn't an active case."

Humphrys was an unused substitute at the weekend against Bristol City.

Prior to that, he did come on as a late replacement in both the previous league games against Preston and Norwich.

Humphrys, who joined Latics from Rochdale last summer, also started the Carabao Cup defeat at Fleetwood in a much-changed line-up.
