Southampton fans have hit back at suggestions that Man United should be looking to sign midfielder James Ward-Prowse.

The Saints moved up to 12th in the Premier League table over the weekend despite losing 2-1 to Burnley.

Hasenhuttl’s men moved above Newcastle on goal difference, as Steve Bruce’s side were smashed 4-0 by Arsenal on Sunday.

One player who started for Saints amid fitness concerns was midfielder James Ward-Prowse. He was stretchered off during Southampton’s last game, a 3-2 defeat to Tottenham, but was able to line up in midfield alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Although he was unable to earn Southampton any points, Ward-Prowse is enjoying a successful season. The midfielder currently tops Southampton’s squad for WhoScored ratings, with an average score of 7.06 – just ahead of Danny Ings on 6.98.

He has produced four goals and two assists in the Premier League, whilst also averaging 2.5 tackles and 1.2 interceptions per game, highlighting his steady all-round play.

TalkSPORT journalist Alex Crook suggested on Twitter that Manchester United should sign him, and these Southampton fans have been reacting to his tweet.

Does Ward-Prowse deserve an England call-up?
