FRASER Forster is running out of time and options to find regular football this season.

Saints are allowing the goalkeeper the opportunity to leave on loan but so far the 30-year-old hasn't taken any offers that have come his way.

Turkish clubs Fenerbahce and Besiktas have shown an interest but the latter have now turned their attentions elsewhere.

The Super Lig outfit are chasing out-of-favour Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius on a two-year loan deal, according to the BBC.

That takes away one option for Forster to take up to find regular football, which he hasn't had since December last year.

Forster was dropped by Mauricio Pellegrino after conceding five goals to Tottenham which was the final straw after a notable drop-off in form.

Alex McCarthy has since been Saints' first choice 'keeper and the club also brought in Angus Gunn on a £10m deal from Manchester City to provide competition in the goalkeeping department.

Gunn, 22, is certainly viewed as the next incumbent between the sticks after McCarthy, which means Forster is way down the pecking order now.

Youngster Harry Lewis was Saints' emergency back-up on Saturday at Everton and it's likely to remain that way with Forster out the picture.

Forster arrived at Saints in a £10m deal in 2014 from Celtic and made 118 appearance in four campaigns.

The former Newcastle man can move until the end of August, when the loan window closes.
