Saints say move makes Shaw 'most expensive teenager ever'

Saints say Shaw will 'carry forward our top-class pedigree' as his completes his move to Manchester United.

Southampton Football Club released a statement on their website this afternoon.

While we are sad to see Luke depart the club, we fought to ensure that we got the right deal for a player in whom we have invested a great deal of work over the past decade. Luke joined us at the age of eight, and our academy staff and coaches have helped him to progress into a top-class player. He will leave our club and carry forward our top-class pedigree, as others have done before. This deal is a good one for Southampton Football Club, and hopefully sends a clear message to other clubs wishing to bid for our players.”

– Executive Director Les Reed
