Southampton live updates
Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is in advanced talks with Tottenham to become the north London club's next manager.
Pochettino has been linked with the role at Spurs for some time and it appears the wheels are in now motion for the Argentinian to succeed Tim Sherwood.
Sherwood, who had been appointed as a replacement for Andre Villas-Boas in December on an 18-month contract, was sacked earlier this month after guiding Tottenham to a sixth-placed finish in the Barclays Premier League.
Former Southampton executive chairman Nicola Cortese believes manager Mauricio Pochettino should not rush into leaving St Mary's and that Saints should do their utmost to fend off interest in their young talent.

I don't know what has happened since I left, so it is difficult for me to judge whether he (Pochettino) potentially wants to leave or whether the offer from another club is really that good.
But he is ambitious and rightly so. When you plan a career, it is important to make the right decision at the right time.
Often we have maybe seen people take too quick a step which ultimately backfires.
But he has to make his own decision. He is a young manager. He has plenty of time to have a great career.
