Les Reed thanks Morgan Schneiderlin for Southampton spell

Southampton executive director of football Les Reed says that midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin leaves the club with their "sincere appreciation".

Southampton's executive director of football Les Reed has said that Morgan Schneiderlin leaves with the "sincere appreciation" of the club.

The French international signed a four-year contract with Manchester United earlier today, ending his seven-year stay with Saints.

Reed told the club's website: "Morgan leaves with our sincere appreciation for his service across the past seven years.

"He has been a pivotal figure in our journey from a club in administration and playing in the third tier to one established in the Premier League and set for its first taste of European football in more than a decade.

"Even in the face of mounting transfer speculation across the past 18 months, he has conducted himself superbly and now moves on with our gratitude."

Schneiderlin joined Southampton from Strasbourg in 2008.
