Southampton in no rush to discuss Minamino situation with Liverpool

Southampton have not talked to Liverpool about extending Takumi Minamino's time at St. Mary's.

The Japan international has scored twice in six games since joining Saints on loan in February.

But manager Ralph Hansehuttl has revealed there is no plan for his club to retain the 26-year-old.

"To be honest, we haven't had any negotiations about that so far," said the Southampton boss, via the Southern Daily Echo.

"We don't even know what Liverpool thinks about the player in the summer.

"The deal was to give him game-time during the first half of the year when he is here.

"This is what we did definitely, until now, and hopefully he will get even more time to play."
