Southampton boss Pochettino says no way back for Reading signing Sharp

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino admits the St Mary's career of Billy Sharp is over.

The striker has signed for Reading on-loan.

Saints manager Pochettino was asked whether Sharp could expect to force his way into the Argentinean's set-up in the new year.

"No, not really," Pochettino told the BBC.

"He was never a player who was part of my plans. Our squad is closed, we have the right number of players so there is no coming back."
