Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt frustrated in Belgium

Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt admits his move to Belgium has left him frustrated.

After falling out of favour at Saints, the defender joined Antwerp on loan until the end of this season.

He said: “If you play regularly in Serie A at the age of 20, make your debut for the Oranje two years later and then complete a transfer to the Premier League, you don't expect to be loaned out to Antwerp a few years later. It was not that I signed blindly.

“If you are under contract with Southampton and have played for Celta and Lazio previously, a transfer to Belgium is an unexpected one and not one which is immediately obvious."
