Pochettino insists Shaw isn't on Southampton's for sale list

LUKE Shaw does not want to leave Southampton and manager Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated that the club will refuse any offers for the teenager.

Shaw's impressive displays for Southampton have seen him become one of the hottest properties in English football, with Chelsea linked with a move.

Pochettino welcomes such interest and column inches, but made his stance crystal clear before the January window opens: Shaw is not for sale.

"It is a very clear situation," the Saints boss said. "The player wants to stay, the club is not willing to sell.

"I think it is very clear what the project here at Southampton is. Our project is about young players and Luke Shaw is a prime example of someone who has come through the ranks at this club.

"Again, the player is not for sale. There's no Luke Shaw case."
