Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has rejected claims that he is set to leave the club for a return to Spain.

The Argentine, who managed Espanyol before coming to England, has been linked with such clubs as Getafe, Marseille and Monaco but he suggests he is planning for the future at St Mary’s.

"Getafe? Oh," he said with a laugh when asked by reporters about his plans going forward.

"I will repeat what I said last week. Everything is calm and we are working to finish off the season as best as possible."

Southampton currently ninth on the Premier League table ahead of this Saturday’s home meeting with eighth-placed Newcastle United.
