Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino says none of his players had asked to leave in the wake of chairman Nico Cortese's departure.

Luke Shaw, the left back valued at £30million by Southampton, may demand to go as Manchester City and Chelsea prepare to fight it out for him.

Pochettino said: "Luke Shaw has a contract and that is a question for the new chairman."

Pochettino said no player would leave unless he decided it would benefit the club.
