Southampton boss Hasenhuttl calm over Soares, Hojbjerg contract situations

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl insists he's unconcerned over Cedric Soares and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's contract situations.

Cedric admitted in an interview that he will leave St Mary's when his contract expires at the end of the season.

There is less clarity over Hojbjerg's situation, but his deal also comes to an end next summer.

Hasenhuttl told the Daily Echo: “They are professionals and I think they both know we only have to discuss something if we stay in the league and if not it's not about a discussion for a new contract.

“The first thing we have to do is to make it clear we stay in the league and to do that we must win games.

“I don't need more on the weekend to have the chance to get three points. If I have this I don't care about extending contracts or something like this. It's about winning."
