Southampton playmaker Dusan Tadic’s future was thrown into doubt during the international break last month after he criticised Saints boss Claude Puel for substituting him at key moments in matches.
The Serbian – who has established himself as one of the side’s key creators since joining them in 2014 – was said to be frustrated at continually being taken off by the Frenchman in the second half, with results then going against the south coast outfit.
