Saints keen to keep Shaw

Published Add your comment

Southampton will ignore any bids for highly-rated full-back Luke Shaw, Press Association Sport understands.

The 16-year-old has been linked with a move away from St Mary's and reports suggest Chelsea are poised to offer £4million for him. Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal have also been linked with the latest product of Southampton's academy, which has already produced the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott.

All three left Southampton soon after breaking into the first team, but Press Association Sport understands the club will not allow Shaw to follow suit. Shaw will begin a three-year professional contract at Saints when he turns 17 next week
