It is known that Lee finished competitive football in Japan last month but he has spent a few days with the Saints squad and has looked close to fitness.
The manager said, ‘Tadanari Lee is over in Japan at the moment and going through the red tape scenario that he has to go through over there. He won’t be available for this weekend, but all being well he will be back sooner rather than later.’
He added that the coming Forest game is out of the question but we will be striving to get him ready for the next match will be home to Leicester.
