Southampton boss Pochettino: I want Puncheon to stay

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he doesn't want to lose Jason Puncheon.

Southampton fans are clamouring for Puncheon to extend his stay beyond the end of the season - something Pochettino would also like to see.

"I myself haven't spoken anything about his contract," the Argentinian said, speaking through a translator.

"I've only recently arrived so my first priority has to be the whole of the team, not just one player.

"There are certain movements that were already happening with players when I arrived.

"In the coming weeks we will be speaking at a club level with the appropriate people to decide on the matters of players at the club.

"Puncheon is a player I am counting on and he is a player that has certain qualities and skills that are good for the team so, yes, I'd like him to stay."
