The 19 year-old has extended his deal with Saints until 2018, having become a regular part of the first-team set-up over the past year.

Reed has played in all three of Southampton’s pre-season friendlies, and is relishing the prospect of working under new manager Ronald Koeman.

“I’m over the moon to sign for this club for the next four years,” said Reed.

“I want to be at this football club because it’s only going forward and is going to keep pushing on, so I’m already looking forward to the future.

“I’ve really enjoyed the three weeks that I’ve been with the new manager and his coaching staff, so I’m looking to continue working on my game now.

“The quality of the training that the manager has put on and the ambition that he’s showing played a big part in my decision.

“The manager wants us to perform just as well and even better than last year, so I can’t wait to play a part in that.”

Koeman believes the club have signalled their intentions for the future by securing the England youth international on a new contract.

“This is very good news. I think it is a positive signal to everybody that we have secured Harrison for another four years,” Koeman said.

“We would like to keep all our good young players at Southampton, so I am very happy to be able to keep him here.

“Harrison has had some chances in the friendly matches this summer and has impressed me in those, along with the training sessions where he has shown his quality.

“He has good qualities and is a big talent. We know that he will develop himself even more as we progress, and will become a great player.”

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
