The 18-year-old defender has been linked with moves to the London duo, with both on the hunt for a new left back in the New Year.
Chelsea are beginning the search for a long-term replacement for Ashley Cole, 33, who claimed yesterday he would like to see Shaw, who has admitted he is a Blues fan, move to Stamford Bridge.
Spurs, meanwhile, have just one trusted, senior left back in Danny Rose and may decide to recall Benoit Assou-Ekotto from his loan spell at QPR in January, if they cannot prise Shaw from the South Coast.
Despite the amount of interest in the England under-21 star, Pochettino is adamant that Shaw is going nowhere when the transfer window reopens next month.
“It is a very clear situation,” the Argentine is quoted as saying by The Guardian.
“The player wants to stay, the club is not willing to sell.”
