The Argentinian succeeded Nigel Adkins in January 2013 and, after ensuring the Saints stayed in the Premier League last term, he has guided them through a season where they have become a permanent fixture in the top half of the table.

However, there have been rumours over Pochettino's future following the departure of the club's chief executive Nicola Cortese in January, with Marseille, Monaco and Getafe reportedly showing an interest in recruiting the former international defender.

But Fonte is keen for a new deal for Pochettino to be finalised following the progress made at St Mary's.

"I think it's massive," the Portuguese defender said. "It's one of the main things. We players love to play under him, we love his philosophy, his style of play, and the way he manages is top.

"He is definitely one of the best managers that I have played under.

"So we look forward to him signing a big, long contract so we can relax and enjoy our time with him."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

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.
