Chelsea interest flattering but Forster planning to repay Southampton faith

Fraser Forster insists he is committed to Southampton despite interest from Chelsea.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper has emerged on the radar of the Stamford Bridge club and although he is humbled by such speculation, the former Celtic star has no plans to leave St Mary's before his contract expires in the summer of 2018.

"I think it is a compliment in many ways because if you are being linked with teams then you are obviously doing the right things," said Forster who is hopeful of making England's squad for Euro2016.

"I have two years left on my contract at Southampton and I have loved my time here. I can't thank the club enough for the way they have stood by me when I was injured.

"I'm just concentrating on the day-to-day business here at the club and then hopefully I can have a good summer with England."
