Southampton boss Hasenhuttl: More opportunities for Danso after Yoshida exit

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl says Kevin Danso could get more playing time after Maya Yoshida's departure.

On loan from Augsburg, Danso has been restricted to just 10 appearances this season.

But with Yoshida joining Sampdoria on deadline day, Danso has moved up the pecking order.

Hasenhuttl said: "He's a young player and I know he always had to play a position so far that is not his best as a right or left-back.

"He played one time [as a centre-back] in the Carabao Cup against Fulham. That's where he is more used to playing.

"Now, maybe in the future, he will have more chances as a centre-back where he is more comfortable."
