Adam Lallana has quashed talk linking him with a move away from Southampton by saying he is happy at Southampton.
Speculation has started to mount that Manchester United are weighing up a move for Lallana, as Red Devils boss David Moyes is desperate to strengthen his midfield options when the transfer window re-opens in January.
Lallana was handed his first England cap this season, and certainly has pledged his loyalty to Southampton's cause, claiming he has no plans to leave the South Coast.
With Lallana's good form in mind, Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino has also jumped quickly onto the bandwagon to warn rival clubs not to make a move for Lallana, with the Argentine insisting the club are under no pressure at all to sell any player at the club.
"I can't express how happy I am at the club," Lallana told the Daily Mirror. "I am so settled. Settled at home with a young child and my family live down here.
"I don't think I am too comfortable either, I get challenged week in week out playing in the Premier League. It is where you want to be as a player.
"I am delighted and as happy as I have ever been here playing for Southampton with one of the best managers in the league."
Lallana, captain of Southampton, has been in a rich vein run of form so far this season contributing with four goals and five assists to date.
