Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse has admitted anything can happen in his future amid transfer links with West Ham United.
Ward-Prowse has been linked with transfer interest from the Hammers ahead of the summer transfer window and reports in The Sun suggest that Saints have placed a £40million price tag on the 28-year-old who was unable to prevent his side from finishing rock-bottom in the Premier League table this season.
Should the Saints’ skipper leave the club this summer as expected, it would end his 20-year association with the club he first joined at the age of eight.
Having scored nine goals and provided four assists in his 38 Premier League matches this term, Ward-Prowse admits there he feels he could not have done more to prevent his side from suffering relegation, adding that he cannot rule out anything in his future beyond this summer.
"It is nice of course, this is a club that has meant a lot to me,” said Ward-Prowse, as per The Sun , when asked if Sunday’s 4-4 draw with Liverpool was his farewell match for the club.
"I've been here for 20 years and had a fantastic journey, I've enjoyed every minute of it. You never know what is going to happen in the future.
"I come away this season with my head held high knowing I've done everything I can for this club, not only this year but ever since I came through the door as an eight year old.
"To play a part in not maintaining that Premier League status hurts me but I'm sure this club will be back in the future."
