Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has admitted to the Daily Mail that Morgan Schneiderlin will miss the rest of the season - and may have played his last game for the Saints.
The French midfielder joined Southampton from Strasbourg in 2008, and has been a key player during their rise from League One to the brink of European qualification.
With over 250 appearances for Southampton, the 25-year-old has become a firm fan favourite at St. Mary's Stadium, but in doing so, the French international has attracted interest from other Premier League clubs, according to reports.
According to the London Evening Standard, Tottenham are 'confident' of signing Schneiderlin this summer, by offering Andros Townsend or Benjamin Stambouli in exchange.
With his ex-Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino in charge, Schneiderlin may be open to a move to White Hart Lane - and may have played his final game for Southampton.
Manager Koeman confirmed to the press today that Schneiderlin has suffered a knee ligament injury, meaning he will now miss the rest of the season.
With speculation surrounding his future, Koeman has told the Daily Mail that he isn't sure whether Schneiderlin will play for Southampton again.
"Morgan will be out until the end of the season," Koeman said. "He has [injured] ligaments in his left knee and he will be out for four or five weeks, so that means until the end of the season."
"I don’t know [if he’s played his last game], or about interest or about bids. We like to keep everybody but we know sometimes it’s difficult. There aren't any serious bids for the player. He is happy but it’s up to the player," he added.
