Morgan Schneiderlin has indicated he could leave Southampton in the coming days.

The French defensive midfielder, 25, has been linked with a big money summer move away from St Mary's Stadium, the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham all said to be possible destinations.

Schneiderlin joined the Saints from Strasbourg in June 2008.

The midfielder was back at his old club to help support a community event, and told France Bleu Alsace radio station he expected his future to be resolved shortly.

"The negotiations are ongoing and should be completed in the coming days, hopefully before the resumption of (Southampton's pre-season) training next week," he said.

Southampton have no interest in signing Charlie Austin from QPR, Press Association Sport understands.

The 25-year-old is being strongly linked with a move from Loftus Road after impressing during an ultimately disappointing campaign for the west Londoners.

Austin netted 18 goals in his maiden Premier League season and the QPR striker is reportedly attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Newcastle, West Ham and Chelsea.

Southampton have also been mentioned as a potential destination, but Press Association Sport understands he will not be moving to St Mary's this summer.

Contrary to reports, Saints have not made a bid for Austin and they do not have any interest in the striker whose form recently led to a first England call-up.

Southampton's on-loan defender Toby Alderweireld hopes his future can be resolved quickly.

The Belgian has enjoyed a successful loan at St Mary's from Atletico Madrid.

Southampton do have an option to buy for around £6.8million but it understood Atletico could revoke that by making a payment.

If that occurred the Spanish club could either keep him or sell elsewhere, and both Manchester City and Tottenham have been linked with the 26-year-old.

He said: "I hope to know where my future is before pre-season starts because it's two years in a row that I have done a pre-season with a club and then on August 31 I have left.

"So I hope this time I can do a pre-season with the club that I will be playing with and have a good year.

"The situation is frustrating and I don't know what will happen. I would like to make a decision but the club has to decide first.

"There are three options - stay with Atletico, stay with Southampton or go to another club. So we will see what happens.

"I've had a fantastic year, I can't lie about that, so yes I'd like to stay in the Premier League."

Starting line-ups: Manchester City v Southampton
