Southampton warn off club's circling for Saints youngsters

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he has no intention of selling off the talented young players. Luke Shaw, James Ward-Prowse and England international Adam Lallana have all attracted attention from a number of leading clubs but the Argentine is adamant no-one will be leaving in the January transfer window.

"Our idea is very clear... no young player is to leave this club.

"We want to keep our young players here which is the whole process of nurturing them and maturing them."

"We want to make them play, to have more experience, we want them to make mistakes, to learn in the Premier League - that's very important for the process.

"I think it would be contradictory to go all the way through this process then just sell them off. That doesn't make any sense at all."
