For their FA Cup defeat to Birmingham City, the Lions boss said his side had been hampered by the absence of Jason Puncheon, who returned to Southampton this week after scoring five goals in a month-long loan spell, and admits he wants the midfielder back at the New Den.
The winger has also attracted interest from Newcastle United.
"Jason scored five goals in seven matches and he is under contract at Southampton," Jackett said.
"We are keen on Jason. We'll see what comes about in terms of who's out there. He is still a target."
