Luke Shaw pledges to sign long term deal with Southampton

Luke Shaw

First published in Sport

HIGHLY-rated Saints fullback Luke Shaw has pledged his long-term future to the club.

The 17-year-old has been the subject of intense transfer speculation, with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea all interested in signing him.

But Shaw has revealed that he plans to remain a Saints player, and is likely to commit himself to a new contract when he turns 18 next summer.

That is the age at which players can sign five-year deals, as midfielder James Ward-Prowse did last year.

Shaw, who currently has a contract that runs until 2015, told the club's official website: "I have spoken with the chairman about a long term plan for me at the club.

"To put an end to all the speculation, I will be committing my future to Southampton. I’m not going anywhere.

"I think Southampton is the place to be for young kids like me. I’m playing in the Premier League for the First Team and that is all anyone wants to be doing, so I just want to carry on."

Shaw added: "If you look back over the years, Adam [Lallana] has come through the youth system and now he is the captain of the first team, and Prowsey (James Ward-Prowse) has just signed a five-year deal – and that is what I want to be doing."

If you read the text, he will be putting pen to paper when he is 18 years old, probably a five year deal just as JWP did earlier. More pressing is the need for a Centre Back to sign up.

Apart from djouro and Chris David look at players you mention and the clubs they go to. I'm keeping faith with na and nc. We can go out panic buy or keep calm and go out and get the right players but just as importantly for the right price. People forgot January transfer window isn't the best time to negotiate.

To be fair these players are pretty much nobodys. Big players will always take a bit longer to sign because more often than not a few clubs are after them and the player needs to assess what offers are on the table.

Anyone else following Luke on twitter? It's amazing - you think you're going to get some great insight into the inner workings of SFC but what you actually get is a 17-year-old (for that is what he is) saying things like "Aren't cheese toasties lush?" and that sort of thing. It's funny to think that for all the machiavellian scheming and planning and science-assisted training regimes that we on these pages are trying desperately to understand, what is mainly happening is that a decent bunch of young lads are working hard and having a bit of a laugh.

Fair play to him. Why would he want to talk about work and possibly say something that he shouldn't??

GOOD NEWS !!!

Luke Shaw is a loyal Southampton Player.

He is not going to sell out or engineer a move to a club like Arsenal that do not seem capable of winning silverware any more. Some of the reason for Arsenal's failure is keeping a Manager that is past his sell by date in terms of delivering. Selling RVP to Manure shows that he has sold his soul to the Directors and puts money above Glory and the Fans.

On to THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

You can understand fans wanting to keep our Manager and being prepared to forgive his mistakes. When the Saints were in reverse due to the finances - changing Managers and getting in mercenary players did not work.

COME ON NIGEL - UP THE PREMIER LEAGUE WE GO !!

On the Subject of Keepers. When there is so much to improve on the pitch - then what are the priorities... ? We have a mismatch system at the moment - but getting in a TOP KEEPER gets you points in the Season - but that alone is not enough.

A Keeper like Jack - with his name alone is more suited to an Average Championship side like Brighton.

WE ARE MORE AMBITIOUS THAN THAT.

On the subject of EUROPE :

The Chairman - the Manager Nigel - and the Fans are ambitious.

One of the posters in the last few days went all brighton and was telling another Saints Fan .... you can stick Europe up your ****

The fact is there are some that want to drag THE NUMBER ONE CLUB IN THE SOUTH to the days when Premiership survival was good enough only.

WE ARE NOT THE SOUTHAMPTON OF OLD.

RED ARMY RULE THE SOUTH (and need good winning football to keep fans at their *i****** best)

This includes LONDON - poor old chelsea last night - not so big time now !!

ON TO RED ARMY PUBS IN SOUTHAMPTON AREAS.

There are many hardcore fans - some go in bright .. ly coloured pubs like the JOSHUA TREE and mix with Away Fans (like the CHAPEL which is a mixture ?)

YEAR ON YEAR - The TOP PUBS are the PRINCE OF WALES and KING ALFRED with about 10 other locations good drinking holes for hard core passionate Supporters - (including THE NORTHAM CLUB !!)

The Station (remember Gossie in the League One Campaign) and Josh are what they are ... further down the Table - with die hard SAINTS SUPPORTERS.

Read some posts from some plastics .. about good AWAY SUPPORT.

ANYONE WHO WAS AT BIRMINGHAM AWAY LAST YEAR knows about good Away Support.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

The odds may be good for a Draw - but WE GO TO AWAY GAMES TO WIN.

RED ARMY 2012.

Lastly well done Luke for coming out and saying he wanted the rumours (DE) to stop. Very creditable for such a young gifted talnt, who could of let his ego been massage in media speculation day in day out.

Agreed.

More games and experience against TOP EUROPEAN SIDES will help develop his game.

Poor old Frank Lampard ... wish he would have some self respect and leave Chelsea.

DID WELL FOR ENGLAND - now living on past glories. Knocked out of Europe this year - the first club to win it and then do that.

Still no moves by NC and our top defender and captain both injured,Saints need to make some moves and not wait until the end of window
Apart from djouro and Chris David look at players you mention and the clubs they go to. I'm keeping faith with na and nc. We can go out panic buy or keep calm and go out and get the right players but just as importantly for the right price. People forgot January transfer window isn't the best time to negotiate.
Partly agree with your post, but I don't think anyone can justify any lack of defensive signings based on 'the right price' argument.

In the summer we were not shy in paying big fees and, based on reports, we will not be shy in paying big fees this window either.

By the looks of it we will be spending at least £10 million and I'd be surprised if we didn't, but the whole key is getting these players in the right areas and using our budget to give us the best possible range of options at the back, so we are prepared for any eventuality and don't have to limp through when we pick up injuries.

I don't advocate paying silly money for players not worth the money, but as I've said, there are plenty of bargains in January if you look closely, they just don't make the headlines like a £10 million Italian or £50 million Torres might.

As I've said, yes clubs hold others to ransom when they have no reason to sell, but there are also loads of clubs that need to make space in their squads in January and, unlike us, some of those clubs have real quality on their bench and in their reserves that they would happily sell on the cheap.

By the way - almost forgot - awesome news on Shaw. Legend. This is brilliant news and a massive pat on the back for NC - as important as any new signing.

I hope more and more youngsters will realise that the grass isn't necessarily greener at a bigger club. In my view far too many, especially English, players are totally wasting their talent and potential by losing their most important years of development on the bench.

Walcott and the Ox - according to the press they've come on leaps and bounds at Arsenal.

I tend to disagree. Would be very interested to see how much more confident Theo would be in himself every game (not just the odd one) if he hadn't moved so quickly.

Nice one Luke and special mention to Adam Lallana, who's been an example to any young kid coming through.

Also to Nigel for making him captain - again sending out a fantastic message to our kids.

The murky world of contracts, it’s all in the small print.
You are probably right, that’s how Newcastle lost Ba to Chelski.
Still, we have to live in the present and aint it good?
Luke will eventually get in the England squad as a Saints player if he keeps his head down and keeps the effort up.

Remember tv money goes up by 20m a club in July with the new TV deal. No one can afford to go down.
Villa have moved for Courtinho the only club to put in a bid so far, turned down expected to return with renewed offer.
Other teams around us are all signing players, we need to step up to the plate, I am sure we will.
Will the Hoover play middle of the back Saturday or will the versatile jack Cork be played there, a position he has p[layed before. Or will we see Aron Martin get his premier debut.
On saturday? The two youngest squads in the premier face each other.

I smell blood and sense another QPR away day outcome.
The skunts may have managed to get the only Arab without any shekels, but it turns out Villa managed to get the only Yank without any dollars (or at least not willing to spend them). Take a bow Randy Lerner.

When you have a silly named CEO like Randy or Rupert what can possibly go wrong?

Don't knock Rupert - he's currently running Garforth Town who are now 22nd (out of, erm, 22) in the first division of the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier.

Word of warning...

QPR - thrashed by Liverpool, absolutely gutless performance.

Totally committed against Chelsea away three days later, won it largely because the opposition thought they would get an easy game.

Villa if nothing else are seriously committed and, due to their age, you never know what you will get.

Unless we go their earning the right to play as NA would put it and anticipating a fierce battle, we will lose. If we avoid that pitfall, we will win.

Benteke will cause us problems, as will a Agbonlahor and the Austrian lad.

Bit of a cliche, but we really need to turn the crowd by retaining the ball well for the first 30 minutes or so and getting in hard when we lose it, avoiding silly freekicks.

Chelsea will be similar. Points to be had if we ride out the onslaught and concentrate 100%.

Agreed. But playing Chelsea away will be easier than at St Marys. Their fans are an utter disgrace and are massively undermining the team's performance at 'the Bridge'. Which is good.

There are many hardcore fans - some go in bright .. ly coloured pubs like the JOSHUA TREE and mix with Away Fans (like the CHAPEL which is a mixture ?)

YEAR ON YEAR - The TOP PUBS are the PRINCE OF WALES and KING ALFRED with about 10 other locations good drinking holes for hard core passionate Supporters - (including THE NORTHAM CLUB !!)

The Station (remember Gossie in the League One Campaign) and Josh are what they are ... further down the Table - with die hard SAINTS SUPPORTERS.

Read some posts from some plastics .. about good AWAY SUPPORT.

ANYONE WHO WAS AT BIRMINGHAM AWAY LAST YEAR knows about good Away Support.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

The odds may be good for a Draw - but WE GO TO AWAY GAMES TO WIN.

The skunts may have managed to get the only Arab without any shekels, but it turns out Villa managed to get the only Yank without any dollars (or at least not willing to spend them). Take a bow Randy Lerner.

When you have a silly named CEO like Randy or Rupert what can possibly go wrong?
Don't knock Rupert - he's currently running Garforth Town who are now 22nd (out of, erm, 22) in the first division of the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier.

Everyone finds their level eventually...
The Itchen Bridge will still be there should things go pear shaped at Garforth :-)

Good news about Luke - shows how much we've evolved in such a short space of time when our youngsters are proud to don the shirt.

Up the Saints

GOOD NEWS !!!

Luke Shaw is a loyal Southampton Player.

He is not going to sell out or engineer a move to a club like Arsenal that do not seem capable of winning silverware any more. Some of the reason for Arsenal's failure is keeping a Manager that is past his sell by date in terms of delivering. Selling RVP to Manure shows that he has sold his soul to the Directors and puts money above Glory and the Fans.

On to THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

You can understand fans wanting to keep our Manager and being prepared to forgive his mistakes. When the Saints were in reverse due to the finances - changing Managers and getting in mercenary players did not work.

COME ON NIGEL - UP THE PREMIER LEAGUE WE GO !!

On the Subject of Keepers. When there is so much to improve on the pitch - then what are the priorities... ? We have a mismatch system at the moment - but getting in a TOP KEEPER gets you points in the Season - but that alone is not enough.

A Keeper like Jack - with his name alone is more suited to an Average Championship side like Brighton.

WE ARE MORE AMBITIOUS THAN THAT.

On the subject of EUROPE :

The Chairman - the Manager Nigel - and the Fans are ambitious.
