Recent reports have linked former Manchester United man Adnan Januzaj with a move to Southampton.

The Saints, along with Premier League rivals Brighton, have been credited with an interest in the 25-year-old.

Real Sociedad value the Belgium international at €25m (£22.4m) and the player has now addressed the rumours linking him with a January move.

Talking to Sports Finding, cited by the Daily Echo, Januzaj appeared to play down a return to the Premier League.

At the moment, as I say, I am very happy here.

There are always interested teams, but I am very happy, with the people, in the city.

At the moment I have no doubt that I don’t want to leave La Real.

Januzaj’s comments will be welcomed by several Saints supporters.

Various fans replied to @SaintsExtra on Twitter when they shared the rumours linking the winger with a move to St Mary’s, with many not keen on a deal.

Southampton would reportedly need £22.4m to secure Januzaj’s services, a figure which would place him in the bracket as one of the club’s most-expensive signings of all-time.

His current Transfermarkt valuation stands at £9m, and with the player only having 18 months’ left on his Sociedad contract, the Saints may be better off leaving their interest in the winger for now.
