25-year-old Southampton centre-half Jack Stephens rose through the ranks with plenty of praise and expectation at St Mary’s Stadium, but with another season of disappointment as we battled against the drop, he has certainly been one of the casualties as a number of fans have thoroughly turned against him after more recent performances.

This year under Mark Hughes and latterly Ralph Hasenhuttl, he’s made 23 starting appearances with a further five showings from the bench and he has featured more recently given the current injury situation at the heart of defence and he’s again been rounded on by some in the fanbase for a poor showing against West Ham United.

He’s clearly struggling to live up to his earlier promise, and those fans that feel he was maybe thrown to the Wolves a little bit and he’s suffering from a severe lack of confidence with Hughes dogmatically refusing to change his defensive selections earlier in the season, have a massive point in my mind, but with change expected over the summer, maybe a clean break is best for all here now.
