Jordy Clasie hasn’t had an easy time of it lately. 

The midfielder has been loaned to Feyenoord for the current campaign, where he has turned in a fairly decent season for the Dutch outfit. 

Making 34 appearances in all competitions, the 27-year-old has had a much better season than last term, where he endured a rather disastrous loan spell with Belgian side Club Brugge. 

The diminutive play-maker has not played for the Saints in two years, and an interview with De Telegraaf (translated by Sport Witness) has revealed that he is playing for his St Mary’s career.

Clasie said: 

Of course my future plays a part in my mindset. Not directly during the matches, but unknowingly outside the competitions. Right now I just want to focus on conquering third place with Feyenoord. I want to close it here as well as possible.

I don’t have any influence on what will happen to me afterwards. But of course I play for my future, there is that realisation.

Ralph Hasenhuttl will attempt to construct a Southampton squad in his own image this summer, and it is not yet clear if Jordy Clasie will be part of his plans.
