Shaw will pledge his future to Southampton when he turns 18.
Southampton teenage sensation Luke Shaw has been targeted by the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United but is set to sign a five-year deal at St Mary’s, reports the Southern Echo.
The full-back will turn 18 on Friday and is expected to commit his future to the Saints despite head-turning offers from the Premier League elite.
Shaw follows in a long line of impressive talents nurtured through the youth academy on the south coast, which in the last 10 years has included the likes of Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott.
The fact that the defender is a life-long Blues fan thought a deal would be swung in Jose Mourinho’s favour, but it seems the England under-17 international is happy to keep playing at Southampton.
Chelsea have a history of signing left-backs from the Saints, with academy player Wayne Bridge being one of the first new signings at Stamford Bridge when Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.
However, the fact that Shaw seems prepared to continue with the Hampshire side is testament to the set-up under manager Mauricio Pochettino and also points to the fact that Southampton are no longer prepared to be a selling club.
The left-back broke into the first team during the 2011/12 campaign, but it was the Southampton’s first season back in the Premier League following a seven year absence that the defender really shone.
Since playing against Swansea City in November 2012, Shaw looked completely comfortable in the English top flight and went onto make 25 appearances during last term.
