“It begins to be more than that, I have had a lot of players come to me and say their agents have told them that I’m not going to be here next year, it is a very difficult situation but I have got to get on with it.”

One potential candidate, Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has remained tight lipped over the reports.
