Southampton boss Hasenhuttl admits Simeu and Small set for debut

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is weighing up when to introduce Dynel Simeu and Thierry Small.

The young pair were in the matchday squad for this week's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

Asked if he was impressed with the pair as an addition to their matchday squad, Hasenhuttl told the Daily Echo: “Absolutely.

“We need every player at the moment so they are training with us all the time now.

“It can happen that we, sooner or later, get a chance for them. This is what we need."

He continued: “For some players, it (the FA Cup) is a good opportunity I think to make first steps in the team and we will have a look."

Saints meet Swansea City in the FA Cup third round next week.
