Southampton’s Cedric not getting distracted by transfer rumours

Southampton right-back Cedric Soares has suggested that he is batting away transfer speculation in order to focus on this weekend’s clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Claude Puel’s are on a good run in the Premier League having won their last two and scoring four goals in both.

Cedric’s future has been a talking point in recent weeks, though, with The Telegraph reporting that Barcelona have selected him as a potential transfer target for the summer.

It is unclear whether the Portuguese Euro 2016 winner will depart St Mary’s for the Catalan giants, but the man himself has suggested on Twitter that his only concern right now is taking on Spurs.

Cedric, who joined the coastal club from Sporting Lisbon in 2015, has made 19 appearances in the top flight this season.

The Saints have been handed a boost heading into this Sunday’s encounter due to Harry Kane being sidelined with an ankle injury.

The England international scored in Spurs’ 4-1 triumph over Southampton at St Mary’s in December.
