Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino says there is no chance of Luke Shaw being sold in January, according to talkSPORT.

The 18-year-old left back has made it clear he intends to stay at St Mary’s, and signed a new five-year deal in July.

However speculation over his future continues, with Chelsea understood to be one of a host of top clubs interested in his services.

The teenager’s displays for the Saints this season has seen him labelled one of the most exciting British talents in the Premier League, and Pochettino has insisted he will keep him at the club.

“It is a very clear situation,” the Saints boss said. “The player wants to stay, the club is not willing to sell.

“What we also need to consider is that he is an 18-year-old player, that he is still maturing, still progressing. He is still learning how to be an experienced player.

“We need to be very calm about the situation. It has taken him time to mature as a player and I think all these rumours and all this speculation around him is not beneficial for him. I think it is negative for him.

“I think it is very clear what the project here at Southampton is. Our project is about young players and Luke Shaw is a prime example of someone who has come through the ranks at this club.

“Again, the player is just not for sale. Again, he wants to stay, so there is no Luke Shaw case.”
