Published Add your comment

Highly rated teenager Luke Shaw has pledged his long-term future to Southampton and will sign a five-year deal at the club on his 18th birthday, Press Association Sport understands.

The 17-year-old left-back has been attracting admiring glances from a number of the Premier League's elite, with Arsenal rumoured to be readying a January bid. However, the latest talent off Saints' production line has ended any speculation over his future by committing his long-term future to the club.

Whilst he cannot sign a senior contract until his 18th birthday, Press Association Sport understands Shaw will be signing a five-year deal when he does turn 18 on July 12, 2013, and the defender told the club's official website, "To put an end to all the speculation, I will be committing my future to Southampton. I'm not going anywhere."
