Marcos Rojo is the defender Southampton need to escape trouble

Marcos Rojo is the defender Southampton need to escape trouble

Southampton will be hoping to remain out of the relegation zone for the rest of the season after a string of promising results. 

In what will prove a hard task for Ralph Hasenhuttl and his men, Southampton need to ensure their better run of results continue with a nicer run of fixtures around the corner.

The Austrian’s entrance has still not clouded the obvious issues Southampton have as a team and during the January transfer window, the manager will be keen to rectify those glowing concerns.

Even though their defensive fragilities have improved since Hasenhuttl has arrived, a new addition at the back wouldn’t be unnecessary.

A no-nonsense player Southampton could really cast their eye over is Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo.

Rojo, (who is valued at £13.5 million on Transfermarkt) has seemingly been frozen out at Old Trafford and faces a very uncertain future with his contract up in two years time.

Without regular time on the pitch, Rojo will feel a move away from the club is a good decision for him at this stage in his career.

He is one of few old-fashion defenders left, a player that fears no tackle and will always give 100%. Simply put, Southampton don’t have a player like Marcos Rojo and he would undoubtedly improve things defensively.

The 28-year-old needs to be playing and at Southampton, he could seize the perfect opportunity to do just that.

A loan deal is surely something that will suit all parties and at the end of the season, Southampton could be delighted with the deal as the Argentinian international had a major part to play in keeping them up.

Could this happen… Let us know!
