Southampton hero Graeme Le Saux has urged his old club to keep hold of Luke Shaw.

Shaw is a top summer target for another of Le Saux's former clubs, Chelsea.

He told the Daily Echo: "Gareth was being mentioned as a promising player when I was at Southampton and it's been great to see him fulfil his potential over the years.

"Southampton should be very proud of their involvement in the development of players like him, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"But if I was manager of Southampton I would want to convince the club to keep players like Luke for a few more years."
