Morgan Schneiderlin has spoken with new Saints boss Ronald Koeman, but the midfielder says he does not know where his future lies this summer.
Schneiderlin, who has been linked with Arsenal, has been away on international duty at the World Cup with France, who were knocked out by Germany in the quarter-finals on Friday.
However, he revealed that he had talked to Koeman on the phone about a week ago, with the Saints manager saying he wants the 24-year-old to remain at St Mary’s.
Schneiderlin was non-committal when discussing his future, though, saying he didn’t know what would happen.
He is quoted as saying: “Yes, he (Koeman) called me about a week ago. But what was said will stay between us.
“He wants me to stay and we’ll see. I don’t know yet. I still have three years left on my contract at Southampton.
“Nothing has happened, I am going to relax and go on holiday and we will see.”
Schneiderlin added: “We have a lot of money coming into the club and now it is up to the board to spend this money.
“I have seen how many players left the club. It is the club’s choice and I have nothing to say about their choice.”
On France’s 1-0 defeat to Germany, Schneiderlin said: “It was very disappointing, but we played against a very good Germany team.”
