Schneiderlin eyes summer move….

Morgan Schneiderlin: Has been a key figure for Southampton

Morgan Schneiderlin has reiterated his desire to leave Southampton this summer if the club doesn’t qualify for the Champions League. The France international had looked set for a move away from St Mary’s last summer when he was strongly linked with Tottenham, only for the club to refuse to let him leave. However, despite Southampton’s excellent progression this season Schneiderlin, who is currently away on international duty with the French squad, wants to play in Europe’s premier competition. “In August, I wanted to take a move but the club had lost too many players to agree to sell me,” he is quoted as saying in French newspaper L’Equipe. “Since then I have had discussions with the leaders and I want to play at the highest level: it is important at 25 years old to finally know the Champions League. “Given that, late in the season, Southampton may qualify for the Champions League and I can stay, who knows. I have no desire to be in front of my TV on Tuesday and Wednesday.”
