Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has warned Manchester United and Manchester City off making a move for James Ward-Prowse. The two Premier League giants have both been linked with the midfielder in recent weeks, following another impressive season for the Englishman.
Ward-Prowse has long been Southampton’s most important player and was handed a new contract at the start of this season. As a result of that deal, which runs for another four years, Hasenhuttl has made it clear that he is not for sale.
“He has another four years on his contract here, he is happy here, he is our captain and he will stay here. We have him here as our captain and it is important that we are as a team successful and make steps forward,” Hasenhuttl said.
In this season we have shown in some moments that we can definitely play like a top 10 team, but there is still a few things missing. We have a chance in the final three games and this is what we are looking at.”
