Southampton Player of the Year to snub Liverpool

Southampton star Adam Lallana discusses his intentions to remain with the club despite continued interest from Liverpool, Mirror reports.

The club captain has been in great form this season as he was named in the PFA Team of the Year and also recently picked up an award for being his team’s best player.

A majority of clubs, such as Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool, are rumoured wanting to lure him away from St Mary’s Stadium with Brendan Rodgers’ side looking as favourites to sign the star.

However Lallana recently stated his openness to a move to Anfield, after picking up his award he seemed to have had a change of heart deciding that he would rather stay put.

The Saints midfielder said: “The club means the world to me.

“I’ve been here since I was 12 and I want to keep progressing with the club.

“I’ve got a great relationship with the fans. We’ve been on a journey, and this is the icing on the cake.”

His performances have also earned him a place in Roy Hodgson’s squad to travel for the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

He said: “It is what all kids dream of when you are young, so it is amazing to think I might be part of it.”
