Luke Shaw
Shaw has been a mainstay of the Southampton first team this season.

Southampton and England Under-21 defender Luke Shaw has warned Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham he has no plans to leave the south coast club in the near future.

The 23 year old has been a near ever-present for Saints this season, helping the club to third in the Premier League after just 11 matches and is among a core group of English youngsters including James Ward-Prowse, Nathaniel Clyne and Jay Rodriguez.

Such has been the impressive nature of Shaw's form that Chelsea, United and Tottenham are all been credited with an interest, but the Southampton full back remains committed to St Mary's.

"I don't really take notice of things that are written about me - it is frustrating at times, but I just laugh it off," said Shaw.

"They (the media) don't know anything because they aren't around the training ground and in the dressing room with me.

"They should know that I've signed a contract at Southampton and I'm not even thinking about moving.

"I am happy at Southampton because I'm playing football, which is exactly what I want to be doing."

"There are a lot of people out there that like to twist things - especially on social media - but I've said a lot of times that I am happy here, so I'll just carry on.

"I think people are starting to realise what sort of a club Southampton is. We are young and ambitious, and we want to go places in the next couple of years."

The teenager signed a new five-year deal with Southampton in the summer after a breakthrough season during which he made 28 appearances in all competitions.

Shaw was forced to withdraw from the England squad for the Under-21 European Championship in the summer but has been talked of by manager Roy Hodgson as a future senior international.

His potential has not gone unnoticed across the top flight and Chelsea, who are yet to offer Ashley Cole a new contract which expires at the end of the season, are among three clubs reportedly interested in his services.

Tottenham, without a current No.1 left back with Danny Rose and Kyle Naughton out injured, and United, themselves seeking a new full back with Patrice Evra's form dropping off, join the Blues.

With Shaw tipped for international success with England, playing Champions League football appears like the natural step up, and Chelsea, Tottenham and United are all following his progress.
