Southampton have had an incredibly tough season this term, narrowly avoiding relegation to the Championship by four points.

They improved when Mark Hughes and his coaching staff came into their roles, but a club like Southampton should never have been in this kind of situation.

Despite a poor season, there were some highlights including a 4-1 thrashing of Everton and a run to the FA Cup semi-finals.

There is lots to work on ahead of next season with the club set to lose plenty of players once more this summer, but it’s imperative that they do everything they can to keep Hughes at the helm after having an amazing impact when he was brought in.

Clasie admits his Southampton future is unclear

  Clasie admits his Southampton future is unclear Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie says his immediate future with the Premier League club is unclear following his loan spell with Club Brugge. Clasie explained the uncertainty surrounding his future to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, as cited by Sport Witness: “ In principle I return to Southampton. My contract runs for another two years. I will talk to my wife and my agent about what we are going to do next season. It is still open for me now.” The Dutch midfielder’s time on loan with Brugge has been far from straightforward. He has been unable to hold down a regular place in the side, even during the play-off period. A lack of regular minutes while on loan has cast further doubt that his future may not be with Brugge. “ ” The player will return to the Saints over the summer, but how much playing time will the struggling midfielder get? Consistent game time at either club does not look guaranteed for the player. Clasie joined Southampton from Feyenoord back in 2015 for a fee of £8 million, which the Saints will be keen to recoup if they do sell him this summer.

Bristol City linked with swoop for Sam McQueen .
Bristol City have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Sam McQueen from Southampton this summer. According to claims from the Mirror, the Championship outfit are making contingency plans ahead of the likely departure of Joe Bryan, with a host of Premier League clubs eyeing a move for the player. Bryan was excellent throughout the 2017/18 campaign and it’s likely that a move to the top-flight will await for him this summer with Burnley, Everton and Aston Villa all touted as potential destinations. McQueen has seen opportunities in Saints’ first-team plans limited throughout the season but was brought on as a substitute in the closing stages of the team’s final two games by Mark Hughes. Southampton will have three left-backs on the books ahead of next season with Matt Targett currently set to return following a loan spell at Fulham. Ryan Bertrand, however, will be allowed to leave the club if an appropriate offer is submitted. McQueen progressed through Saints’ academy and broke into the first-team last season. However, it appears as though he may have the chance to leave the club this summer, with Lee Johnson’s side reportedly keen.
