Jos Hooiveld has been released by Southampton after spending the season out on loan.
Hooveld has lost his place at Southampton and never really had a chance to impress this season. The Saints brought in Toby Alderweireld and Florin Gardon to play center-back on top of the already solid Jose Fonte and Maya Yoshida. There are holes at Southampton, but center-back is not one of them and Hooiveld will not be missed in any way. Sat, May 30, 2015 05:19:00 PM

Southampton defender Jos Hooiveld has completed a loan move to Millwall.

Hooiveld has lost is backup center-back job at Southampton after the club signed Florin Gardos and Toby Alderweireld earlier this season. He had been on loan at Norwich this season as he is now behind Gardon, Alderweireld, Jose Fonte, and Maya Yoshida on the pecking order at Southampton. The loan is beneficial for everyone.

Jos Hooiveld is reconsidering his future with Southampton due to a lack of first-team opportunities.

Hooiveld is behind Dejan Lovren, Jose Fonte, and Maya Yoshida at the center-back position in Southampton and the 30-year old wants to play more during his prime. Hooiveld only has eight appearances this year (three in the Premier League) and doesn't really have a way into the starting eleven unless others suffer injuries. He is good enough to start for a low end Premier League team but will probably not be a good fantasy option even if he became a starter.

Jos Hooiveld will be a late fitness check for Southampton's match against Liverpool on Saturday.

Hooiveld has returned to training but will be a late fitness check ahead of the game. With Dejan Lovren returning from injury and Jose Fonte and Maya Yoshida playing well in recent weeks, Hooiveld is the fourth option for the Saints. The chances of him playing are very low so you can avoid him at all costs.

Jos Hooiveld of Southampton believes the Saints can win the Capital One Cup this year.

Hooiveld scored a goal in Southampton's win over Bristol City in order to secure a place in the last 16. Hooiveld has lost his spot as a starter in the Premier League to Jose Fonte and Dejan Lovren, but impressively play like earlier this week could give him more chances in the Premier League. Avoid him in fantasy for now.

Victor Wanyama has stated the offer he received from Southampton was "not right" for his liking and the talks between the two parties have stalled.

Wanyama is a defensive midfielder/centre-back who can help the Saints tremendously on the defensive side of the ball. He is young but mature and experienced and would be a great signing if they can land him.

Southampton are interested in acquiring Italian defender Davide Astori.

Southampton's defense is not its strongest point and the Saints are looking to improve. Davide Astori would be a quality signing that should strengthen the defense. Jos Hooiveld could lose playing time if the Saints bring in new defenders.
