Southampton chief Reed: There'll be no firesale here

Southampton football chief Les Reed insists there'll be no "firesale" this summer.

Reed spoke before Pochettino's pre-match media conference.

"Any enquiries we get will probably be met with a 'no, not for sale.' Our intention is to keep this very good team together and build on it by bringing in players to improve upon it.

"Every transfer window, particularly the summer, is a difficult one because everybody is out there trying to attract players.

"We have our targets, we want to improve the squad, these are things we are discussing on a daily basis and we intend to produce a squad that is capable of not just maintaining the position we are in at the moment but improving next season.

"It's a positive message we want to get out there.

"Our fans deserve to understand there is not going to be a fire sale here and we have repeatedly said that.

"We have had no offers for players, deals are not about to be concluded for any of our players, and we want to keep all of our best players here at the club and build on that for the future.

"That is all I want to say and I don't want to take any questions on it, I want to deliver the accurate picture of where we stand at the moment because of the speculation that is going on."
