Southampton fans shocked by rumours of Tadic exit

Last season, Dusan Tadic had moments of inconsistency during Southampton’s difficult season.

There were times when he was the best player on the pitch, and days when he failed to contribute to the effort of the team.

Despite this, the Serbian international, who has earned 54 caps for his country, is regarded as one of the Saints’ best players.

The 2017-18 campaign was tough for everyone associated with the coastal club as they had a very serious brush with relegation.

It took a slender 1-0 win over Swansea City in the closing stages of the season to retain their spot in the Premier League.

Mark Hughes had a tough job on his hands when he replaced Manuel Pellegrini in March, but he managed to reach the main objective, and earned himself a permanent contract as a result.

Tadic has been a Southampton player since 2014 when he signed from Twente, but rumblings from the rumour mill suggest that he could be on his way out of the exit gates at St Mary’s.

Dutch publication De Telegraaf reports that Ajax have agreed personal terms with the winger on a four-year contract.

It is believed that the Eredivisie giants will part with around £15m to sign the 29-year-old, who scored seven goals and created four assists in 41 appearances in all competitions last season.

Some Southampton fans have been left fuming at the thought of selling Tadic.
