31-year-old Southampton and Japanese centre-half, Maya Yoshida, needs no introduction at St Mary’s following his long association with the club after his arrival from VVV Venlo back in August 2012.

Having arrived for a snip £2.5million all those years ago, Yoshida has established himself as a modern day legend with well over 150 appearances to his name, and so far in the 2019/20 campaign, he’s featured six times for Austrian manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. In recent weeks he’s been a regular member of the starting XI, and despite the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, he came in for plenty of praise from the fans on social media.

With Yoshida’s deal slowly coming to an end, for plenty in the fanbase they feel he’s already shown enough to see the club and Hasenhuttl hang him a new extension, as he has plenty of years left in his legs yet.

Even if we are pivoting to youth more under the new gaffer, there’s still a place for experience and Yoshida never fails to give his all, it’s why he’s so liked.
