Vestergaard has impressed for  Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga over the past two years, following his switch from fellow German side Werder Bremen.

Mark Hughes is now hoping to tempt him into a move to England, with a chance to test himself in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old has been capped 15 times by his country and made almost 200 appearances in the Bundesliga.

Jack Stephens, Maya Yoshida, Jan Bednarek and Wesley Hoedt are Southampton’s current central defensive options.
