Hasenhuttl Keen To Move Duo On

Hasenhuttl Keen To Move Duo On

Ralph Hasenhuttl has admitted neither Wesley Hoedt or Fraser Forster have a future at Southampton while he is at the helm. The Austrian has been busy clearing the decks at St Mary’s to make room for some potential new arrivals later in the January transfer window, confirming Manolo Gabbiadini is on the verge of joining Italian side Sampdoria.
The Saints chief has now revealed both Hoedt and Forster are available for purchase should a suitable buyer be found with neither player having featured since Hasenhuttl took charge at the club.
Hoedt cost Southampton £15million when they signed him from Lazio and it is expected the south-coast outfit will try to recoup as much of that outlay as possible when trying to sell the Dutch defender.
On Hoedt’s future, Hasenhuttl told the Daily Echo: “It’s right that nearly every player played a game until now and he didn’t. “It’s difficult. I made the decision for Vestergaard, Jack Stephens in Derby County and Jack will take the part of Maya Yoshida who is gone for one month. That’s not the best for Wesley, that’s right.”
The former RB Leipzig boss also went on to rule out handing Forster another chance, claiming he has chosen Angus Gunn and Alex McCarthy as his two goalkeeping options. “I had to make the choice to have two strong keepers with Angus Gunn and Alex McCarthy and I think they did it well. Both,” he added. “It will always be like it is if you have good experience made with one keeper then you don’t look for another one. “It can be that Fraser can take a game in the under-23s so it’s possible to do in the future because he needs to get back into the position where he is an option for other clubs maybe, and that’s what we try to force in the future.”
