Matt Le Tissier has told Dejan Lovren to “keep his trap shut” after the Croatian criticised Southampton for rejecting Liverpool’s bid.

The Croatia international is desperate to force a move to the Reds, who had a £20m bid for the centre-half rejected on Friday.

The player in question should keep his trap shut

Lovren was one of the best defenders in the Premier League last season after joining the Saints in a £9m deal from Lyon last summer.

The 25-year-old, who is also attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur, claimed that his head was already at Liverpool following their failed bid.

But Southampton legend Le Tissier, who scored 161 goals in 443 appearances for the south coast club, blasted the Saints star.

“So @DejanLovren05 wants to leave SFC for LFC because we are selling our best players. If he signs and they sell Suarez then will he want another transfer?

“In my opinion until your club accept a bid from a team wishing to buy you, the player in question should keep his trap shut.”
