With Sharp seemingly not figuring in Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino's plans, speculation is rife that the 27-year-old will link up with former boss Nigel Adkins once again.

Reports suggest that a fee in the region of £1.2million has been agreed between the two clubs, and even that a medical had taken place, but Sharp insisted he knows nothing about it.

"Don't believe what you read. My loan's finished at Forest, I have two years left at Saints," Sharp said on Twitter.

"Just for the record, I haven't had no medical."

Sharp played a pivotal role in securing Saints promotion back to the Premier League, before joining Nottingham Forest on loan for the season.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
