Che Adams could be on his way out of Southampton for a cut-price fee this summer, according to reports from Football Insider.
The 23-year-old joined the Saints from Birmingham City for £15m last summer, on the back of scoring 22 goals in the Championship for Blues under Garry Monk.
Since arriving at St. Mary’s, though, Adams has flattered to deceive, failing to find the net in 27 appearances and starting only eight times in the Premier League.
Have these 15 Birmingham players been capped at senior international level?
Adams was believed to be a wanted man in January; Leeds United reportedly had a £19m bid accepted for the striker, but a change of heart from Ralph Hasenhuttl meant that a move broke down.
Now, though, Football Insider claim that Adams is likely to be available for around £10m or less this summer, leaving the likes of Leeds on alert.
Plenty of Birmingham fans have now reacted to the news that Adams could be available for a cut-price this summer, with plenty demanding the club to bring back their former star.
Adams was superb under Garry Monk last season, scoring plenty of goals and spearheading their charge for the play-offs before the club were hit with a nine-point deduction.

Russell Faulkner: Personally don’t see the obsession, yes he had an amazing 18/19 season but before that his stats were shocking. I’d much prefer to sign Hogan on a permanent.
Stephen Massey: Please come home and we will get back where we belong with your mates and fans who appreciate your ability.
Jason Bardell: Be great if that happens , he was brilliant when he played for us , scores goals
Steve Shaw: I’d go pick him up and drive him back myself! What Southampton failed to realise is that they needed to sign the Juke too.
Vijesh Borhara: Come on bcfc dig deep and bring him back where he belongs kro
Paul Sudbury: I think we have moved on from che, yes he had a good season but maybe that was a one off, would much prefer to go and get Scott hogan
Marc Aspery: Everyone wanting him back are in dreamland. There’s no way we’d be able to afford him and he wouldn’t want to drop to the championship again either
Noel Sturdy: As good as he was for us he obviously ain’t good enough for the step up to the premier league. Plenty of players are like him where they seem to good for the championship but not quite good enough for the prem
