Metro has interested most of our punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern with their latest claim.
Apparently, Southampton left back Luke Shaw is rather impressed with the links surrounding his potential move to one of the Premier League’s elite clubs.
After being voted in the PFA Team of the Year, the teenage defender claimed that he was flattered by links with big boys Manchester United and boyhood club Chelsea, but stopped short of claiming a summer move was on the cards.
He spoke at the awards dinner and noted: “It’s a good thing to be linked with them, but I don’t concentrate on that, I’ve got football to focus on.”
He also made Southampton fans rather happy by claiming that should the summer end with him staying at his current club, that would not be a problem.
He further noted: “Yeah of course [I’d be happy to stay at Southampton], I’ve said it a number of times, it’s a great club and I’m still young and have a lot to learn.”
Do you think Shaw is after a move or is he genuinely happy at the Saints for now even if his stock continues to rise? Let us know your thoughts below.
