Saints not releasing Lemina on loan

Southampton are not interested in loaning out Gabon international Mario Lemina but they would consider a permanent deal if the terms are right, according to Daily Echo.

The 25-year-old joined the Saints from Juventus in 2017 and has been in decent form for the St Mary's Stadium outfit even though an abductor injury ruled him out for the most part of the 2018-19 campaign.

With Ralph Hasenhuttl looking to strengthen his squad with new signings this summer, Lemina is believed to be an asset that would attract huge offers.

Even though they are yet to receive any formal bid for the midfielder, the club will not consider releasing him on loan.
