English teenage sensation Luke Shaw has ridiculed the suggestion of a move to Everton by tweeting “No thanks”.
The Southampton left-back and regular user of social networking site Twitter responded to a question from a Toffees fan asking whether he would be willing to replace Leighton Baines when he leaves the club with a somewhat blunt reply.
Peter Dickie tweeted the England Under-21 star to say: “I know you love Southampton and everything mate but you know when Baines hangs up his boots? Come play for Everton (sic)”.
But the tweet, now deleted, appears to suggest that Shaw has no intentions of quitting St Mary’s for Goodison Park.
The 18-year-old has been linked with a move to a number of top Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
David Moyes is reportedly interested in acquiring the services of the teenager, but it is believed that Shaw does not wish to move to Old Trafford.
In January the future England international revealed on Twitter that he is a Chelsea fan and that the ground which he was most looking forward to playing at was Stamford Bridge.
His favoured move is thought to be to the West London club, but in order to play for his beloved Blues, Shaw would currently have to displace Ashley Cole – considered by many to be the best left-back in the world.
Arsenal and Chelsea both came close to signing the future England international during the January transfer window, with Arsene Wenger singing his praises and Southampton reportedly rejecting a £10 million bid from the Blues.
And Shaw, who made 28 appearances for Saints last season, pledged his future to the south coast club in June when he signed a new five-year contract on the day of his 18th birthday.
