Southampton consider releasing goalkeeper Forster for loan

Southampton are weighing up releasing goalkeeper Fraser Forster for loan.

The Daily Echo says Saints are looking to loan out Forster after completing the signing of promising young keeper Angus Gunn.

The arrival of the 22-year-old from Manchester City for an initial £10m has pushed Forster down to third choice in the pecking order behind Gunn and number one Alex McCarthy.

Forster wants to be playing regular first team football, while Saints are understood to be keen to try and shift at least some of the 30-year-old's wages off their books.

Forster is one of the club's top earners after signing a new five-year contract last summer.
