Oriol Romeu been linked with a shock return to Barcelona after impressing at Southampton
The 25-year-old has impressed on the south coast this season after the departure of Victor Wanyama.
He signed a new contract earlier this year but has been linked with a return to Barcelona – the club he started his senior career at.
Romeu left Barcelona for Chelsea in 2011 after failing to break into the side on a regular basis but found game-time difficult in west London as well.

He then went out on loan twice before joining Southampton in 2015. A difficult first season has been followed by a much better one this term under Claude Puel.
And the former Spain youth international admits it’s nice being looked at by the big boys, but stresses he is happy where he is.
"It’s something very nice, of course, I had been there for many years and know the level of players," he said, referring to talk of a Nou Camp comeback.

"Being linked with the club is always something nice but, luckily, I’ve been at Chelsea and Barcelona and haven’t played and I don’t want to be there again and I don’t want to have this feeling [of not playing].
"I’m feeling very happy here [at Saints] and I won’t give this away.
"The club has given me a massive welcome since the beginning, signing a new contract in January, and this support and confidence they have given me is something that no one has done before.
"I feel very pleased for that and I wouldn’t say I’ve just stopped here, I’m very pleased with what they’ve done for me and I just want to give this love back."
