The Independent reported on Monday that Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie is unsure of his future after a touchline bust-up with Giovanni van Bronckhorst during his loan spell with Feyenoord, and Saints fans have been quick to discuss what could happen to him on Twitter.
The south coast outfit brought the Dutchman to St Mary’s in an £8m deal in the summer of 2015, but he has never really made much of an impact and has spent time away on loan at Club Brugge and now the team he was initially signed from.
The 27-year-old may well have been hoping to secure a permanent return to the Netherlands, but that is in doubt following his weekend altercation, as well as the fact that van Bronckhorst will be replaced by Jaap Stam in the summer, as per The Independent.
Why should Southampton be more like Dortmund? Find out in the video below…
Clasie only has one year remaining on his contract with Southampton, and if they want to recoup any of the money they paid for him four years ago then they will likely need to do it this summer – it appears as though his future lies directly on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s shoulders right now.
Saints supporters have been having their say on the Netherlands international via social media, and while one simply believes “he doesn’t want to be at #saintsfc”, another said “I think he’d thrive under Ralph”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Maybe just maybe… he could be a decent squad player under RH

Unfortunately will never see him back here. Said openly he couldn’t settle here with his family and reasons for his loan were personal life. Shame as he will be a great signing for a European team

I’d go with you – I think he’d thrive under Ralph! #saintsfc
