    Southampton boss Nathan Jones has dismissed reports striker Che Adams could be sold to relegation rivals Everton.

    Adams, Saints’ top scorer with eight goals this term, has been linked with a move to Goodison Park before tonight’s transfer deadline.

    Everton and Southampton are joint-bottom of the Premier League and, while both clubs are keen to strengthen their squads, Jones insists there is no chance of his side helping the Toffees.

    ‘Let’s be honest, that’s not going to happen,’ he said ahead of tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final, second leg at Newcastle which the Saints trail 1-0.

    Jones is confident Saints’ potential deadline-day activity will not be a distraction from the small matter of attempting to guide his team to the final of a major competition.

    He said: ‘My role in terms of identification and affirmation of signings is done. I’ll have total focus on trying to get Southampton to Wembley.’
