Che Adams will stay in Southampton … although the £ 15m striker has yet to score for the Saints
- Che Adams remains and fights for his place in the Southampton team
- The £ 15m summer signing from Birmingham still has to score for his new club
- But conversations with manager Ralph Hasenhuttl have the 23-year-old
Che Adams is determined to stay and fight for a place on Southampton after being reassured about his future during conversations with manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Hasenhuttl reiterated that he sees Adams as a big part of his plans and that the club will be much more upcoming week in discussion with the forward.
As a result, the 23-year-old is not allowed to leave on loan to Leeds this month who was looking for a new striker this month after Eddie Nketiah's return to Arsenal .
Adams now wants to pay back Hasenhuttl's confidence in him by kneeling down and pushing to a place on the Southampton side.
Adams moved to St. Mary's for £ 15m from Birmingham in the summer, but has yet to score and Danny Ings has emerged from the 16-target talisman of the South Coast Club.
Adams, however, timely recalled his qualities by playing a key role in Southampton's 2-1 shock at Leicester, getting off the bank to set up the winner of Ings and now hopes to build on that important contribution to their revival in shape.
Southampton has won five of their last six games and pulled the other to climb from the bottom three to reach the 12th and the FA Cup fourth round.
