Southampton fans are far from happy after it was revealed Josh Sims has been placed on the club’s released list following the end of the 2020/21 Premier League season.
The Saints experienced a mixed season last time out. While they started the campaign well and even reached the F.A Cup semi-finals, they produced a lacklustre display against Leicester City at Wembley, and they could only end up 15th in the table after going on a poor run of form. As such, there is likely to be a shake-up at the club this summer.
That will include several outgoings. As confirmed on the Premier League website, 11 players will depart the club on a free transfer, one of which is 24-year-old Sims. There had been high hopes for the midfielder, but he ended up making just 27 appearances for the club before departing (Transfermarkt).
Are you upset at Sims' exit?
However, it seems his departure has upset a number of the club’s supporters. The news was shared on Southampton’s official Twitter account, and the fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Sims news below
“Shame to see Sims go, always looked dangerous when he played”
“Gutted about @simsjosh12″
“crazy to let Josh Sims go, good little player on his day”
“Always rated Josh Sims and Jake Hesketh, shame to see them go”
“Dropped the ball with Sims! Anyone that picks him up has an absolute steal”
“Sims is a mistake IMHO, Jake also had something about him.”
