​The 26-year-old arrived at the St.Mary’s stadium with a huge reputation having won Rangers’ Young Player of the Year and Goal of the Season during his three-year stay in Scotland.

​With the Saints getting relegated to the English Championship and the struggles of the dynamic midfielder in his first season in England he might be open to leaving.
