Schneiderlin to stay at Southampton, insists Koeman

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has insisted that unsettled midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin will remain at the club despite his desire to leave, Sky Sports has reported.


Morgan Schneiderlin


The Frenchman has seen a number of teammates leave Southampton over the summer, and he is being linked with a move to North London, with Arsenal and Tottenham both reportedly in the race to sign the 24-year-old. Rumours in recent days have suggested that he would move to Spurs in a £20m deal along with striker Jay Rodriguez.


Schneiderlin handed in a transfer request on Tuesday evening despite having three years still to run on his contract, having become unhappy after chairman Ralph Krueger and executive director Les Reed said no more players would leave the St. Mary’s Stadium this summer.


And Koeman, appointed as successor to Mauricio Pochettino in June, is adamant that Schneiderlin will stay despite his current disillusionment. After a friendly victory at Brighton & Hove Albion - which Schneiderlin misses - he said: "It's the decision of the board but I don't talk about it. He's a player at Southampton and he will continue as a player at Southampton.


"But I don’t like to talk about that situation. I spoke to Morgan two days ago and he is still not in the shape to play a friendly at this level. He needs more training sessions. If he's ready he will play. Normally he will play next week against Bayer Leverkusen [Southampton's final pre-season friendly]."
