New Southampton signing Clasie in danger of missing start of season

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that summer arrival Jordy Clasie could miss the opening games of the new season.

The 24-year-old Dutch midfielder, who joined from Feyenoord earlier this summer, had to be substituted due to a hamstring injury in Thursday's 3-0 Europa League qualifying win over Vitesse at St Mary's.

"Clasie had some hamstring problems - we will find out more tomorrow," Koeman said.

"It is possible he will miss the start of the season because hamstring injuries are always dangerous." The Saints will kick-off their Premier League campaign against Newcastle United on August 9.
