Southampton legend Le Tissier expects big things from Ward-Prowse

Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier is expecting big things from James Ward-Prowse next season.

He tips 18-year-old midfielder Ward-Prowse to make an impact.

He told The Sun: "We had a glimpse of Ward-Prowse, out of the ones that are coming through he's the one that could have a big future in the game.

"Obviously throughout the season [Morgan] Schneiderlin and [Jack] Cork were impressive, so his chances became limited as the season went on but he'll be another year older and will be the next one to break through.

"He played against Man Utd and Man City. He then lost his place in the team when Steven Davis came in for a bit, then when Cork got fit, the Cork-Schneiderlein combination in midfield was solid and they were brilliant together, that's why he hasn't had much of a sniff.

"He'll be pushing those two next season."
