In March, Garth Crooks claimed that there would be no better replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum at Liverpool than Ward-Prowse, who is currently the club’s fifth top Premier League scorer of all time with 29 goals.
Should Ward-Prowse leave Southampton?
The 26-year old has had a standout season for Southampton, despite their form falling off a cliff since the turn of the year, which has earned him a regular place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
Speaking on why Ward-Prowse won’t see his future away from Southampton and how he has become the main man, Howey told The Transfer Tavern:
“He’s the main man there basically. I mean, he’s the captain and he takes the free kicks, the penalties, throw-ins, corners and he just does everything, basically.
“I think if he was to move then it would be great financially for him but at Southampton, he will be settled with his family and he is their main man.”
