Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that he expects defender Luke Shaw to stay at the club next season, according to Sky Sports.

The 18-year-old has faced a lot of speculation over his future after his excellent performances this season earned the attention of the Premier League’s top clubs.

Despite big interested from Manchester United and Chelsea, Pochettino has said that Shaw’s future lies in the hands of owner Katharina Liebherr and chairman Ralph Krueger.

"That's the first time I've heard about that, it's news to me," he said. "At the end of the day Luke Shaw is a player that belongs to Southampton, and it will be the club that makes the decision as to what happens with his future.

"Of course there will be interest for him, but so far right now he's a player at Southampton and it looks as though it will continue that way.”

Several Saints players have caught the eye this season, in particular the England players among their ranks have made a case for their inclusion at the World Cup this summer.

Despite the speculation, the boss has disregarded talk of moves elsewhere and stated that his players are under contract and are currently very happy at the side.

"There are a lot of players who are under interest at Southampton, but they are all very happy at the football club, and most of them are under long-term contracts.

"They understand the situation of what it means to be a professional player in the Premier League. There's nothing really we have to speak about on that front. If there is any decision to be made, it is for the owners, not for me."
