Southampton defender and reported Chelsea target Nathaniel Clyne has revealed that he is happy to stay at St Mary’s.

Speculation is rife that Clyne, whose contract expires in 12 months, was set to leave the south coast this summer amid speculation linking him with the Blues and Manchester United.

Negotiations are underway over an extension, however, and the 24-year-old right-back hints that his long-term future is certainly with the Saints.

He told the Daily Echo: “I am enjoying my football for Southampton, playing week-in, week-out and it is an up-and-coming club. I am happy playing for Southampton and happy to stay at Southampton as well.

“My agent is negotiating, so I will just leave it with my agent and I am just going to concentrate on playing my football.”

It was reported that manager Jose Mourinho was also keen on signing £20m-rated Everton right-back Seamus Coleman during the off-season.
