In his 22 Premier League appearances last season, the striker was able to contribute a rather impressive three goals and two assists (per ), so it was conceivably expected that he would keep to aspect for the Saints this season.

Considering the thicken of both Danny Ings and Che Adams this season, this is possibly unsurprising, whilst the loan signing of Theo Walcott method that it was also conceivably unlikely that he was going to be a usual for the South Coast staff this season.
That being said, man academy landscape Dan N’Lundulu has furthermore featured in the top-flight this season and has been on the bench for two other fixtures (per ), suggesting that he may well keep moved above Obafemi in the pecking order.
As a result, the Ireland U21 international ought maybe be sent out on loan, as to ensure that his mobility isn’t stifled too a great deal by sitting on the bench for the Saints.
Considering he has already made in the Premier League in his career, there would surely be no scarcity of good in the striker from sides in the Championship, and conceivably a loan to the hindmost dividing would assistance him realise his potential.
“The interrogation with Michael was always he would drama one moral game and then swoop back a infrequently nibble and was not professional enough to decisive or posses his case in the team or in the squad.
“This makes it too possible for others to go above him. I think this is what he ought learn.
“Once he is in the squad, don’t allot it away so chewed and try to be aggressive and dangerous in facade of the goal.
“I suppose this is item he misses, but he’s young, he calmness has to learn a mass and this is a kindly of mentality but is moreover a balmy of quality.” (per )
Therefore, it seems clear that the Austrian gaffer is not totally convinced by Obafemi and a positive loan spell could be recognized what the Irishman needs to repossess his confidence and put him back into Hasenhuttl’s honest books.
