Artur Boruc is focused on helping Southampton avoid relegation rather than becoming distracted by speculation over his future.

Boruc, 33, was signed by Southampton last summer and, after struggling for form, has recently impressed, most recently saving a penalty at the death to earn his side a point at Norwich City.

The former Fiorentina goalkeeper's current contract at St Mary's expires in the summer, but he is putting thoughts regarding his next move to the back of his mind as Southampton lie 16th in the table.

"I will leave it to my agent and the club," he said. "I am just doing my best and I'm working hard, so we will see what is going to happen."

Reflecting on Southampton's 0-0 draw against Norwich, the Pole said: "It's always important not to lose. We are working hard and I think we have shown in the last couple of games that we can play good football."

"We don't look like a team who should be relegated and that's the main thing. We are quite confident. I think it's a matter of time and we are going to grab points."

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, is happy with the goalkeepers at his disposal.

He said: "At Southampton we have three very good goalkeepers. Artur and Kelvin (Davis) have shown that they have experience and we have a young keeper in Pablo (Gazzaniga)."
