England manager Roy Hodgson gave Manchester United fans hope that full-back Luke Shaw will be available to face Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday by confirming his withdrawal against Scotland on Tuesday was precautionary.
Shaw appeared to be in some discomfort following a heavy first half challenge but following his on-pitch assessment the United defender was able to play-on. Discussions continued through half-time and Shaw was able to play 66 minutes before he was replaced by Kieron Gibbs. Post-match Hodgson did confirm he was replaced – along with Danny Welbeck – to protect the player ahead of this weekend although what will concern supporters is that the "muscular tightness" was affecting the same hamstring which hampered his pre-season training. Luke Shaw will be assessed further at Carrington over the next 24/48 hours. Nov 19 - 11:45 AM

Reports out of Old Trafford indicate that Luke Shaw is fit and available for selection in Week 4 against Queens Park Rangers.

Louis Van Gaal has been, ahem, hamstrung with his defensive selections thus far this season with transfers not happening until late and Jonny Evans and Luke Shaw both turning up injured in the early going. Good news for LVG as Evans featured in Week 3 and Luke Shaw is reportedly ready to go. Given Ashley Young's performances thus far in the wing back role, it seems likely that Shaw will be thrown into the mix immediately.

New Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has injured his hamstring and has been ruled out for a month.

This is a huge blow for Manchester United as they don't have much depth in the back and are already looking at injuries at right-wing back in Rafael and Antonio Valencia. The injury is also a concern because Shaw has had a history of injuries and is now establishing himself as an injury prone player, something Manchester United don't want to hear after spending highly on him this summer. Shaw missing out practically guarantees Ashley Young a starting spot at wing-back for the first month of Premier League action.

Reports indicate that Southampton should know in short order whether they will land Argentina international Marcos Rojo to replace Luke Shaw at left back.

The exodus from the St. Mary's has been well-documented but the signing of a high profile World Cup left back to replace Luke Shaw, and doing so at a fraction of Shaw's price, would go a long way to mollifying Saints supporters. Grazziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic have the pedigree to replace Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana but not much has been done to replace Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovern and Calum Chambers at the back. A move for Rojo would certainly be a big improvement over Ryan Bertrand in rebuilding the defense and fantasy managers would have to be on alert to a potential bargain in Rojo.

It has been confirmed that Luka Shaw is headed to Manchester United on a fee worth £27m.

This is highest ever fee received by Southampton for a player. Shaw is a great fit at Manchester United, where Louis van Gaal will take over after the World Cup. van Gaal has played a lot of 3-5-2 and 5-3-2 at the World Cup and if he brings that same style to Manchester, Shaw would be a fantastic asset on the left wing. He is an immediate starter regardless of formation and will be a big part in Manchester looking to rebound from a poor season. Feel safe using him in fantasy.

Luke Shaw will reportedly undergo a medical at Manchester United ahead of a possible move to the club.

If the reports are true, it means that United and Southampton have probably agreed on a fee for the England left-back. Shaw was exciting at Southampton last season and impressed enough to make England's World Cup squad this summer. He is one of the big Southampton names that have been showered with rumors for possible moves away from the club. Rickie Lambert already moved to Liverpool and Adam Lallana is reportedly being pursued by a number of Premier League teams. Shaw would be an immediate starter at Manchester and could have huge upside if Louis van Gaal chooses to play a 5-3-2 like he does with the Netherlands.

Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana have informed Southampton that they want to leave the club.

Shaw and Lallana and the subjects of bids from some of the Premier League's top clubs and have informed Southampton that they want to pursue those options. Liverpool have reportedly made a £25m bid for Lallana while Manchester United have offered £27m for Shaw. The young stars have not made official transfer requests but have expressed their feelings to management. Lallana is also unhappy that the club weren't returning his calls last week in regards to the LIverpool bids. Southampton are holding out on big transfers until they appoint a new manager to replace Mauricio Pochettino so we will likely have to wait until after the World Cup to see any kind of deal get done.

Luke Shaw helped Southampton rebound from their recent dip in form by keeping things clean while opponents Everton did quite the opposite in a 2-0 win.

The Saints were looking like a side that were coasting to a disappointing finish after taking just one point in their previous three matches, but the Toffees decided to help them today with two own goals to account for all of the scoring. With Roy Hodgson present, Shaw did his best to show why he deserves a spot in England's squad this summer, keeping Seamus Coleman at bay. Regular fantasy darlings Ricky Lambert and Adam Lallana both put in good shifts as the nucleus of Southampton has them looking like a side that deserves a top half of the table finish. Hopefully for their fans, they will be able to afford to keep most of the talent they have heading into next season.

Luke Shaw made his debut for the England National team as he battles Ashley Cole for a spot on England's World Cup squad.

Shaw came on at halftime to replace Ashley Cole and played extremely well in his first appearances on the senior international level. He had a number of impressive runs down the left side and played well defensively. Ashley Cole wasn't bad either and Roy Hodgson will have a really tough decision to make. Luke Shaw was only five years old when Ashley Young made his England debut and now could be replacing him for the World Cup.

Luke Shaw is getting a lot of support as he prepares to get his first England senior squad cap in a friendly against Denmark on Wednesday.

Shaw was recently called up to the senior squad for the friendly and looks set to make his first appearance. He is behind Ashley Cole and Leighton Baines but has a chance to make the 23-man squad that Roy Hodgson takes to Brazil if he impresses on Wednesday. Teammates Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, and Jay Rodriguez are also in the 30-man squad for the friendly.

Mauricio Pochettino has reaffirmed his commitment to Southampton despite Nicola Cortese's departure from the executive suite.

The news that the manager will be staying will likely settle the club and reduce the chances that a number of rising stars will agitate for a move away from the south coast. Luke Shaw's name has been linked frequently with Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City and those rumors had increased with the news of Cortese's departure. There have also been rumors of Jay Rodriguez potentially moving to Liverpool. In the face of such rumors, the manager has said without equivocation that no one will be leaving in January.

Southampton left-back Luke Shaw missed Sunday's game against Tottenham due to a throat infection.

Shaw has dealt with a series of small injuries and illnesses this year and hasn't had the chance to get in great form for a long period of time. He has performed well when on the pitch but not all of his efforts have translated into fantasy points. The Saints' lack of clean sheets in recent weeks also decreases his fantasy value. If you want a Southampton defender, use Dejan Lovren.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is not willing to sell their 18-year old star left fullback to anyone.

Despite reports that Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham have all expressed interest in prying away the England U-21 international, Argentine boss Mauricio Pochettino said that he will not be parting ways with his promising academy product anytime soon. "They can show their interest. That's not something we control. But in this individual case he is not a player we are willing to sell. In a sporting manner, he is not for sale." Shaw has appeared in 13 of the Saints 15 games this season. He has one assist and has helped the team earn five clean thus far, including a shutout against Liverpool at Anfield back in September. Southampton have had their hands full as of late losing in three of their last four matches. The Saints will look to turn things around against Newcastle on the road this weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana will be fit to face Chelsea, despite their having been withdrawn early from last week's match against Arsenal.

Luke Shaw picked up a knock over the weekend but is expected back with the team this week and should be available for Southampton's next game.

Luke Shaw left the Arsenal game at half time because of a knock he picked up but the injury is not expected to cause any long term problems. Shaw has been a big part of Southampton's run this season and he should continue contributing if he can stay healthy. Adam Lallana was taken out of the game early because of a knock he has been dealing with since the international break but he is also expected to be fit for next weekend.
