Southampton defender Cedric Soares remains unmoved despite rumours linking the Portuguese defender with a move to Premier League champions Chelsea. Cedric, 25, has three years remaining on his contract with the Saints.

The versatile full-back has been one of the Saints' best players in recent times and his form for the club has been a catalyst for Chelsea's interest in signing the player.

The defender himself admits that he is flattered to have been linked with a move to Antonio Conte's side but is happy to stay at St Mary's: "I am have a contract with Southampton and I am working every day like I always do. I am professional.

"Of course a player likes to know some big teams are interested in us and it’s normal. We work every day.

"I have a contract. I am focussed and what happens will happen."

The 25-year-old signed a new contract with Southampton only last summer and Saints fans will be looking to keep hold of the defender for the time being.
