Pochettino not seeking Southampton exit

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino insists he has no plans to leave the club anytime soon.

Reports suggest the Argentine could be on his way out at St Mary's at the end of the season as he seeks a new challenge in Italy, but the former Espanyol boss has denied those claims, saying he is happy on England's south coast.

"In Italy there is pretty much a new piece of news happening every minute, most of them are contradictory from one minute to next.," he said.

"What can I say about it? If we paid attention to every single report that came out in Italy, we would go mad.

"I can't really comment on something that is not consistent and has no solidity to it or no base to it. I am happy here of course."

He added: "There haven't been any talks of an extension of the contract and there is no news about that. The moment that does happen I will answer questions about that."
