Le Saux: Shaw should stay put at Southampton

Graeme Le Saux believes it is too soon for Southampton's Luke Shaw to move to Chelsea.

Le Saux, who played for both the Blues and Saints in his illustrious career, believes the 18-year-old left-back is at the right club to continue his development.

Shaw, a boyhood Chelsea fan, has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as long-term successor to Ashley Cole and is in line for a call up for England's friendly with Denmark next month.

I've been watching him play quite a lot.

He has the qualities of an attacking full-back who has a lot of pace and a lot of energy.

He's still very young and the more experience he gains for his club and at under-21 level, I feel that he's in the right place at the moment and his development is crucial.
