WESLEY Hoedt has made it clear that he wants a permanent move away from Saints.

The defender has spent this season on loan with Belgian side Antwerp after it became clear he wasn’t going to be part of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl’s plans.

Hasenhuttl also sent the Dutchman to play for La Liga outfit Celta Vigo back in January 2019.

Talking to Hut Nieuwsblad, Hoedt also revealed he’s had interest from clubs across Europe’s top leagues.

He said: “That’s [leaving] the intention, yes.

“I already have a number of offers from clubs in those competitions, but I have to wait and sit down with Southampton.

“What is clear is that I’m not waiting for a year on loan. I want to be fully transferred this time.”

Hoedt joined Saints from Lazio for £15million in August 2017 and has made a total of 45 appearances for the club.

In an interview earlier this year, the central defended labelled the Belgian First Division A as a ‘Mickey Mouse’ competition.

Antwerp have an option to sign Hoedt on a permanent deal once the summer transfer window opens but it’s unlikely they’d be able to stump up the cash.

Because of this, Hoedt believes it’s unlikely he’ll be lining up for them at the start of next season.

“You have written often enough that the purchase option is €8m and, at the moment, it’s unrealistic that a Belgian club pays that,” added Saints’ loanee.

“Even without the Coronavirus, I think it was too much. Antwerp can lift the option until May 31st, but I know enough by now.

“The club only has to make a statement, but for me, it means that my time at Antwerp is over.”
