Southampton fans react as Harrison Reed speaks out on his future with the club

In an interview with the Eastern Daily Press, Southampton midfielder Harrison Reed has hinted that he doesn’t want to return to St Mary’s following his season-long loan spell from Norwich City if he isn’t going to be playing football, and Saints fans have been quick to have their say on his comments.

The 23-year-old has been a regular for the Canaries in the middle of the park this season having made just 30 appearances in all competitions for the south coast outfit’s first team previously.

The midfielder has already surpassed that tally this term with the Championship outfit having made 32 outings in total for them, and he would face a challenge to play regularly at his parent club given they have Mario Lemina, Oriol Romeu and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in central midfield – although that could of course change if Mauricio Pellegrino’s men are relegated.

Southampton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Reed’s thoughts on his future, and while one said “a summer move could be best for all parties”, another said “if (when) we sell Lemina we will need him”.
