But the player has now made a move that could increase speculation around his future by changing agents and joining with super agent Pini Zahavi.
Speaking to Danish outlet , the player explained his decision.
“It’s all very simple. I ended my association with Søren Lerby around mid-December. Then I got the opportunity to work with Pini and took that opportunity," he said.
“I am very happy to have Pini on my team. I don’t need to introduce him. His story speaks for itself. He is the master of his profession.”
Earlier in the month, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl gave an update on the player's situation.
