Southampton chief Les Reed admitted the “signs are good” on a new deal
There has been growing speculation that Clyne would join the Reds next season with his contract due to expire.
The 24-year-old has become England’s no. 1 choice at right full-back after standing out for his club, following the departure of Callum Chambers to Arsenal.
Clyne has come a long way in the past few years and his desire to play in the Champions League has alerted United, amongst other teams.
Southampton chief Les Reed said: “We’re in constant communication. These contract negotiations are never just one meeting, where everything is done and sorted out,”
Reed added that Clyne is focusing on the remaining matches and that’s it perfectly reasonable to hear players saying they want to “wait until the end of the season”.
Koeman fears Clyne move
The Dutchman has recently acknowledged Clyne’s desire to play in the Champions League is “normal” and should a club come in it would be difficult to stand in his way.
When asked about interest from United, Koeman said: “The club can’t fight against big teams in the Premier League because the money and the possibilities of them are still much higher than we have.”
