Pochettino insists Shaw won't leave

Southampton left-back Luke Shaw is prepared to reject a move to Manchester United in favour of joining Chelsea, according to the Daily Mirror.

Shaw has been targeted by both United and Chelsea in recent weeks, with the Mirror saying that United manager David Moyes had offered £22 million for him.

However, Shaw, a Chelsea supporter, will turn down a transfer to Old Trafford during the January window, and is reportedly willing to wait until the summer where he believes Jose Mourinho will bring him to Chelsea, as they see him as an ideal replacement for Ashley Cole.

Southampton are believed to be willing to sell Shaw in January if clubs match the £30m asking price, but a move away from St Mary's is likely to happen in the summer.
