Schneiderlin who have joined Southampton in 2008 from French outfit Strasbourg and has played for the Saints both in League One and the Championship before Southampton’s return to top flight. The 25-year ols has rejected a new deal which was worth £60,000-a-week to remain at St Mary’s.

The midfielder was back at his old club for a community event and discussed about his future as he expects it to be resolved in the coming days. He said, “The negotiations are ongoing and should be completed in the coming days, hopefully before the resumption of [Southampton’s preseason] training next week.”

The saints have already begun their pursuit to find a replacement for Schneiderlin as they have already shown their interest in Marseille’s £15million-rated Giannelli Imbula.
