Japanese striker Tadanari Lee has been released by Southampton

Daily Echo: Tadanari Lee Tadanari Lee

Saints have released Japanese striker Tadanari Lee from his contract after a two-year spell at the club.

Lee's future had been in doubt anyway with his contract due to expire this summer and Saints  have now put an end to any speculation regarding his future by ending his stay at St Mary's.

The 28-year-old arrived on the south coast from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the 2011/12 January transfer window as Saints looked to add firepower for their Premier League promotion chase.

His most memorable moment came when he notched his first goal for Saints in spectacular fashion in a 4-0 victory over Derby County, unveiling his archer celebration. That strike earned Lee the club's Goal of the Season.

The eleven time Japanese international then added assists against Leeds and Barnsley in a fairly impressive start to his career at St Mary's.

Lee was then added to the roster of players ahead of the 2012/13 Premier League campaign, along with fellow Japan international Maya Yoshida, who moved from Dutch club VVV-Venlo.

His second and last goal came in the 4-1 cup win over Stevenage Borough and he made two further appearances against Leeds and Chelsea in cup competitions that term before a temporary move to FC Tokyo to get regular football after injuries hampered his progress.

Lee then returned to the squad and but was again limited to appearances in the Capital One Cup this season - playing in the 2-0 win over Bristol City and the 2-1 defeat to Sunderland.

With the arrival of Dani Osvaldo and the emergence of Sam Gallagher, Lee was always going to find it tough and he has been continuely pushed down the pecking order since Saints were promoted to the top-flight. 

Lee is the first member of a group of outcasts to exit St Mary's with Billy Sharp, Lee Barnard and Jonathan Forte also widely expected to leave the club in the near future.

We do seem to take an eternity to move players on once we've decided they're no longer in our plans which seems daft as it eats into our wage budget. I popped into Asda Chandlers Ford last week for some provisions and queued behind Lee Barnard. He was very pleasant chatting to the chap on the till and myself, but I did watch him wander off thinking what have we done to his career? Yes he certainly isn't up to Prem standards but is an excellent Div1 player or acceptable Championship.

Yes I know, but it cut him off just as he started to make progress, I was surprised to see him return at all, there are some strange goings on within the club about registration and retention of players, I can't understand any of it. Lee Barnard a prime example, what is going on with him, he should be out (on loan?) playing regular games with a lower League side, not stagnating here.

I think it's indicative of the speed of recovery from league two back to the Prem. The cub offers a pretty lucrative deal to entice the player in the first instance, to get us to the Championship, and then finds that he not up to playing in the Prem. The stumbling block is the wages, And you can't really blame the players cos we would all probably do the same.

I think Angus is right - wages. That's what blocks the likes of Tad Lee and Sharp from moving, they're on £20-25K a week and no one else seems to want to pay that. We paid them that and got promoted to the land of zillions so guess not everyone is as ambitious!

am I wrong in thinking that a players contract can only be ended by mutual consent ? tad lee probably wants to go back to japan, find a club and get to the world cup. lee barnard (and others ) want to go on earning prem. wages until their contract runs out . as others have said they were probably on a contact that gave a big rise if saints got promotion so they can only move on with a big drop in wages.

You can pay the contract up to end it early or reach a compromise if both parties are willing to negotiate.
