It’s been reported this week that Southampton striker Jonathan Afolabi is set to leave the club amid significant interest in his future services.
A report from Football Insider has suggested that the 19-year-old Academy graduate has now rejected the offer of a contract extension at St Mary’s Stadium with four firm offers already on the table.
They claims two sides in the Premier League have already made contact, as have a Championship club and a side in League One.
Having arrived at the club back in 2016, he’s pretty highly rated but he’s yet to make a senior appearance for us, although he has technically made his senior bow when featuring for our Under 23 setup in the amended EFL Trophy.
With his contract naturally expiring this summer it’s probably no surprise that he’s assessing his options, but if the offer has been rejected then you can only presume he sees a clearly pathway through to first team action elsewhere.
