Southampton star committed amid transfer rumours

Right Back - Luke Shaw

Southampton left back Luke Shaw has reiterated his commitment to the club despite continuous rumours about his future, as reported by Sky Sports.

The 18 year old is one of the best young talents in England at present and has caught the eye of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in recent months, leading him to sign a new five year contract at St Mary’s.

With the Saints flying in the Premier League, currently sitting pretty in the top four, Shaw is ignoring all talk about his future as he has no intention of leaving his boyhood club.

The England under-21 international believes Southampton is the club to be with in England right now as they continue to improve and dream of European football in the not too distant future.

“I don’t really take notice of things that are written about me – it is frustrating at times, but I just laugh it off,” he told Southampton’s official matchday magazine.

“They (the media) don’t know anything because they aren’t around the training ground and in the dressing room with me.

“They should know that I’ve signed a contract at Southampton and I’m not even thinking about moving.

“I am happy at Southampton because I’m playing football, which is exactly what I want to be doing.

“There are a lot of people out there that like to twist things – especially on social media – but I’ve said a lot of times that I am happy here, so I’ll just carry on.

“I think people are starting to realise what sort of a club Southampton is. We are young and ambitious, and we want to go places in the next couple of years.”
