GAS­TON RAMIREZ and Rickie Lam­bert will NOT be leav­ing Southamp­ton, ac­cord­ing to man­ager Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino.

Ramirez’s agent has been angling to move the mid­fielder to In­ter Mi­lan this sum­mer and West Ham and Read­ing are both keen on buy­ing striker Lam­bert.

But Po­chet­tino is not look­ing to let ei­ther of them leave St Mary’s.

The Ar­gen­tine said of Ramirez’s links to In­ter: “I just lis­ten to Gas­ton, not his agent. Gas­ton is happy here and we ex­pect him to stay.”

And Poch is just as con­fi­dent Lam­bert will con­tinue to be in his plans, adding: “We are happy with him. I didn’t know there was any in­ter­est in Rickie. This is a sur­prise for me.”
