Southampton midfielder Jamie Ward-Prowse admits that he is ready to battle it out with any new signings for a place in the side next season.

Southampton youngster James Ward-Prowse has revealed that he is looking forward to competing for places in Mauricio Pochettino's side next season.

The 18-year-old will have more competition at the club after the Saints completed the signing of Victor Wanyama from Celtic.

"If a new player comes into the camp – like Steven Davis did last year – then you've got to battle it out," Ward-Prowse told the club's official website.

"It's not going to be easy but you are going to have this throughout your whole career – players will come in, and managers will come and go. It's about how you deal with it.

"It's added competition and it's a challenge for me now to shrug him off so I can keep my place in the squad and get into the first XI."

Ward-Prowse made 15 appearances in the Premier League last season.
