Report: Southampton to loan Jannik Vestergaard out in January

Southampton are open to loan offers for Jannik Vestergaard during the January transfer window, according to a report from the Sunday Mirror (8/12; page 67).

Vestergaard has not featured for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men for a month. His most recent appearance came in the 2-1 defeat to Everton in November.

And it appears that there is a chance that that may prove to be his final outing for the Saints for some time.

According to the Sunday Mirror (8/12; page 67), Vestergaard could be loaned out in January. The Premier League side are willing to listen to bids for the 27-year-old.

Vestergaard has been a disappointing signing. There have been times when the centre-back has produced a performance that suggests that he has turned a corner.

However, after arriving for an £18 million fee (via Sky Sports), he has certainly proved to be an underwhelming addition. But it still looks to be something of a risk to loan him out.

 

TBR View – Loan move may be a gamble

While Southampton may not miss Vestergaard if he does leave, it could still be a risk to only let him go on loan.

The Saints will clear a £60,000-a-week wage off the bill (via Spotrac). But they are missing out on a transfer fee, so his departure may not help Hasenhuttl too much as he looks to strengthen his squad.

A loan may provide a financial boost. But perhaps a permanent sale would be better – even if they have to take a bigger hit on their asking price.
