Gabbiadini will stay at Southampton this season rather than go out on loan despite his goalscoring struggles, Hughes has revealed.
"Gabbiadini struggled to a certain extent," Hughes said.
"We're conscious he hasn't had game time here and players sometimes need games and runs of games.
"He won't be going out. I like the options I've got upfront, I have no intention of letting anybody else out. I'd be surprised if anyone else would go out now."
