​Jose Fonte will sign a new contract with Southampton, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Portugal centre-back, who had been linked with a move to Manchester United, will reportedly see his wage rise from £45,000 a week to £75,000

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was eager to boost the heart of United’s defence with Portuguese countryman Fonte and was lining up an £8million bid.

But after a meeting with the Saints’ director of football Les Reed and chairman Ralph Krueger, Fonte will stay at St Mary’s. 

Manager Claude Puel said: “The situation of Jose is now finished and he is back to normal.

“Jose is now concentrating just on his football and his team. He had a good discussion with the director of football, with the chairman and now everything is all OK.
