Southampton fans react to Gabbiadini departure

Loads of Southampton fans have been reacting to some huge transfer news, as Manolo Gabbiadini has officially left the club.

Gabbiadini has joined Serie A outfit Sampdoria, Southampton have confirmed.

The fee is thought to be in the region of £10.8m, according to a report from The Guardian.

Gabbiadini has fallen down the pecking order at St. Mary’s this season, but fans will remember the Italian international very fondly.

Since joining in 2017, the 27 year-old has scored ten Premier League goals, including the priceless goal at Swansea that ensured the Saints survival in the top flight.

He also grabbed a brace in the 2017 League Cup final defeat to Manchester United, a brace that would have been a hat trick if not for an incorrect offside decision.

Ralph Hasenhuttl was expected to target a new winger rather than a striker this month, but Gabbiadini’s departure could have a big impact on those plans.
