Fraser Forster rejected summer move

Fraser Forster rejected summer move

Southampton have been a mixed bag so far this season as they haven’t quite been able to ensure consistency under Mark Hughes. 

The Saints managed to secure all three points in their last outing against Crystal Palace, so they’ll be desperate to pick up where they left off after the international break. However, it appears as if one of the club’s current first team members could learn to regret his summer decision, as according to the Mirror (September 7, page 60) (via HITC), Fraser Forster rejected a loan move to Turkey during the summer transfer window.

It’s believed that Fraser Forster rejected a loan move to Turkey during the summer transfer window.

Fraser Forster has gone from Southampton’s number one goalkeeper and an England squad regular to a Premier League forgotten man almost in the blink of an eye.

Indeed, the Englishman has a very little chance of securing any minutes in the Premier League this season, so he may comes to regret his summer decision.

THE VERDICT:

The goalkeeper just hasn’t been up to scratch at St Mary’s in recent times and could be on his way out permanently in the January transfer window.

Indeed, the shot-stopper made a number of mistakes for the Saints last season and has since been replaced by Alex McCarthy, who is in and around the England squad.

Therefore, having rejected the chance to move out on loan to Turkey during the summer, he may not see regular football until after January.
