MOUSSA Djenepo is in line to make his Saints debut against FC Koln this afternoon.

The £14m summer signing has spent the last week training with his new teammates after being handed an extended break.

Djenepo was in action for Mali during the Africa Cup of Nations until the last 16 round when they were knocked out by Ivory Coast.

Despite the narrow knockout defeat, the 21-year-old proved to be a nuisance down the wing and created a number of excellent chances for his teammates.

Upon arriving at Staplewood last week, Djenepo underwent the customary fitness checks before flying to Holland to watch his new side play against Feyenoord.

The match ended in a comfortable 3-1 win for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side, thanks to goals from Che Adams, Maya Yoshida and Sofiane Boufal.

Saturday’s game against the German outfit FC Koln at St Mary’s is Saints’ final pre-season test before they kick their Premier League campaign off against Burnley next weekend.

This will give Hasenhuttl the final opportunity to see his players in match action before the trip to Turf Moor.

It will also bring to an end a summer that has seen them travel to Austria, China, Dublin and Holland, winning four games along the way.

Their pre-season started with a 1-1 draw with SCR Altach which they responded to with a victory behind closed doors against Brentford.

They then started to build some momentum with wins against Guangzhou R&F in front of majority shareholder Gao Jisheng and Feyenoord.

As well as seeing Djenepo in action this weekend, the majority of supporters attending St Mary’s will be able to catch a glimpse of fellow summer signing Adams.

The £15m ace, who arrived from Birmingham at the beginning of July, has already developed a knack for netting an early goal.

Adams has scored three times in pre-season, with all of them coming inside the first six minutes of action.

He was one of the few first team players who was picked for the short trip to China before returning to Dublin to continue training with the rest of the squad.

His performances have, so far, vindicated Hasenhuttl's persistence in wanting to sign the striker.

The Austrian tried to tie up a deal for Adams in January, only for Birmingham to reject Saints' advances.

But Hasenhuttl stayed patient and got his man last month.
