LEICESTER midfielder Hamza Choudhury is on the radar of Saints, according to a report in the Telegraph.

The newspaper claims Saints are looking at the 22-year-old “as they look to replace Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg following his departure to Tottenham”.

Choudhury, an England under-21 international, played 29 times for the Foxes in all competitions last season – including in Saints’ 2-1 victory at King Power Stadium in January.

Saints saw midfielder Harrison Reed exit to join Fulham on a permanent deal last month, while Mario Lemina also joined the Cottagers on loan.
