Mane happy at Southampton

Southampton forward Sadio Mane admits he's happy at the club despite interest from Tottenham and Manchester United during the transfer window.

The Senegal international was linked with Spurs throughout the off-season, while there was also talk of a big-money move to the Red Devils after they lost out to Chelsea in the race for Spanish winger Pedro.

Mane admits transfer talk is part of football and is inevitable when players are enjoying good form for their respective clubs.

"In football we always have, like this, many of you move but I have a contract with Southampton," Mane told the Daily Echo.

"I'm happy here, the fans like me, which means I'm doing my job properly."

Mane joined Southampton from Red Bull Salzburg for £11.8 million, after scoring 45 goals in two full seasons at the Austrian giants.
