Morgan Schneiderlin says he expects to remain at Southampton for the rest of the season but admits he could still leave the club in the summer.
Schneiderlin openly voiced his desire to leave St Mary's last summer, with both Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool all interested in acquiring him, only for Southampton to block any deal.
The 25-year-old has since redeemed himself to the Saints fans with a series of impressive performances to help his club defy pre-season expectations and surge into fourth in the Premier League.
But while he is wary of making any definitive statements after a protracted transfer saga last summer, Schneiderlin is refusing to rule out leaving Southampton at the end of the season.
"It's always difficult to leave in January," he told Telefoot.
"I think I'll finish the season at Southampton and we'll see what will happen next. I don't set my mind on these things anymore.
"What should happen will happen. Since the summer, I've learned that you should never think that you're gone before you actually are."
