It was suggested the Sunderland striker could be used in a swap deal in Graham’s move to the Stadium of Light, but Martin O'Neill confirmed today that Wickham is heading nowhere.
The 19-year-old has started just one top flight game this season, and some would question if he offers O’Neill a genuine option from for a first team spot.
But O’Neill is well short of numbers - especially as striking options - and can ill-afford to let any other players go before the summer.
The Sunderland boss said today: "I have made two offers. They are on the table.
"It is up to the two clubs concerned to accept them . or not.
"But no players are involved in any swap deal."
