Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has told youngster Armando Broja to ignore the noise around his future.

The young centre-forward is enjoying an excellent season with the Saints this term.

He is on a season-long loan deal, and speculation had suggested he may sign for another year on loan as well.

Hasenhuttl does want to keep the 20-year-old, but wants Broja focused on the here and now.

"To be honest, it doesn't affect me massively because I know he's here until the end of the season," Hasenhuttl said of doing a deal with Chelsea.

"We have enough time to talk to them, to talk about our future with him.

"Let this guy play football, let this guy do their job. I think it's very important for the young players that they can develop their game in a calmness and not with these hectic rumours around; it doesn't help any young player, especially not him.

"This is what we try to do, we try to calm everything down because he should concentrate on his job and that is what he's here for."
