Southampton winger in dramatic U-turn

Southampton are set to offer midfielder Dusan Tadic a new deal at the club, according to the Daily Star.

The Serbian was keen on leaving St Mary’s, after falling out with then manager Ronald Koeman. Whilst teammates such as Fraser Forster and James Ward-Prowse had signed new deals with the Dutchman at the club, Tadic was more than unhappy.

But with Koeman moving to Everton, and Claude Puel taking the reigns at the Saints, the 27-year-old is happy to negotiate a new deal to stay with the Premier League side.

Tadic played in 34 Premier League games last campaign, scoring 7 goals, and helping the club finish in a UEFA Europa League place for next season. It was only his second season in England, since moving from FC Twente.

Virgil van Dijk, Steven Davis and Ryan Bertrand have also signed new deals this summer, with the club currently negotiating with striker Shane Long, according to the Daily Star.
