Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has indicated that Ghana’s Mohammed Salisu will be involved in Southampton’s FA clash against Wolves on Thursday.
Salisu joined the English side after a fantastic stay at Real Valladolid where he featured in all but 1 Spanish La Liga game which attracted reported interests from a host of clubs in Europe including Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Manchester United.
However, the centre back is yet to feature for the Saints since moving in September last year due to fitness and injury concerns.
Speaking to the press ahead of Thursday’s FA Cup game, Ralph Hasenhuttl was in high spirits about the Ghanaians readiness to finally make his debut.
“We see more and more players joining us, more and more players coming back – we need this as we are still in a busy time of the season, we have Kyle Walker-Peters back and Mohammed Salisu now able to play.
“We still have five injured players, but it’s getting better, the squad is getting bigger now, and it’s giving me more opportunities.
“The more alternatives we have, the more we can rotate in the next games, and this is what we will have to do because the last thing we need is injuries. We must really take care of them.”
Southampton eliminated Arsenal in the previous round and will now play Wolves at the Molineux.
