MORGAN Schneiderlin has NOT handed in a transfer request at Saints, the Daily Echo understands.

There were reports this morning that the Frenchman had taken that action after chairman Ralph Krueger said yesterday the midfielder would not be joining the St Mary's exodus this summer.

There was also a report today that Schneiderlin refused to train with the rest of the Saints squad, but the Echo understands he was at Staplewood as normal.

The midfielder is unhappy, however, at being told he will not be sold.

He tweeted last night: "6 years of an amazing journey #saintsfc DESTROYED in 1 hour !!!"
