Not a Shaw Thing!

If Chelsea interest in the exciting young 17 year-old Southampton left back, Luke Shaw, was genuine, it appears a move to bring him to West London may be doomed to failure.

This morning Southampton have announced that Shaw, who turns 18 in July has agreed to sign a 5 year contract with the Hampshire club with their boss, Nigel Adkins, crowing,

"He has committed his long term future because he knows he is at a club that cares."

A club that cares or a club that will, eventually, trade him in when the right offer comes along?

We`ll see!

He would be a fool not to sign, this team probably nutured him, had faith in him and used him for their first team, so its normal he should return the favour, atleast when he wants to move by 20, he'll be a better player and southampton would sell for profit, pleases both party, the only way we can buy him now is perhaps if soton relegates and he wants to stay in the PL, which is probably unlikely

why buy him brothers???? we have PVAwho is the best left back in the netherlands. analysts say that he at the moment is far better than buttner, the guy who was bought by manure to eventually replace evra. luke shaw is no way better than pva except in the case that he has played in the premiere league.
