Clean bill of health for Villa visit


The manager has confirmed that Southampton will tackle the visit of Aston Villa with a fully fit squad at St Mary's on Friday night, aside from long-term absentee Jack Stephens who continues to be sidelined.

Armando Broja has resumed full training following a brief spell out with an ankle problem, while captain James Ward-Prowse has served his recent suspension and featured for 75 minutes against Watford last time out. The remainder of the squad are fit for selection. 

Talking about Broja, Ralph Hasenhüttl said: "He's back. He's available for the weekend. The rest, apart from Jack Stephens, are available. I have a full squad to pick from. Moussa [Djenepo] is okay."
