Ralph Hasenhuttl prepared to let Wesley Hoedt leave Southampton

Ralph Hasenhuttl has been ringing the changes to the Southampton squad he has inherited this January.

Steven Davis completed a move to Rangers, whilst Manolo Gabbiadini is thought to be closing on a switch back to Italy, per The Guardian.

And, now it appears he has given the green light for another player to leave the St Mary’s Stadium this summer.

Wesley Hoedt has struggled to make an impact during his time at Southampton since arriving for a fee of £14.76million when Mauricio Pellegrino was in charge, per Transfermarkt.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hasenhuttl said: “Yeah, it’s not the best for Wesley, that’s right. It’s the same for Gabbiadini or Steven (Davis). The guys went away to find other solutions, it’s better for them.

“For Wesley it can be the same. We don’t send any player away but if he feels like he is not used like wants from us, he should think about it.”

The Verdict:

Hoedt’s time at Southampton certainly looks to have come to an end under Hasenhuttl.

The Dutch international, who started all but one match for Mark Hughes, is yet to feature for the new manager and currently sits behind the likes of Jannick Vestergaard, Jack Stephens and Maya Yoshida in the pecking order.

Still only 24-years-old, he could find a great move to benefit him and his career, however, at the moment, it remains to be seen if a club will come in for him this January.
