Southampton have acquired Filip Djuričić on loan from Portuguese side Benfica for the remainder of the season.
Djuričić is known as an attacking midfielder and would figure to battle for playing time with veteran Steven Davis when looking at the Saints current squad. Having capped for the Serbian national team, Djuričić was on loan to FSV Mainsz to begin the season but will now finish up the campaign on England's southern coast. Ronald Koeman has had great seasons from many of his regular players, so it may take some time for Djuričić to have an impact. If he is in this weekend's XI, then it would appear Koeman sees him as an important asset down the stretch. Feb 2 - 3:13 PM

Steven Davis has been ruled out of Northern Ireland's match against Romania on Friday.

Davis is dealing with a hamstring issue and scans ruled him out of the match against Romania this week. He will be a huge miss for the Northern Ireland squad but remains hopeful he can return in week 12 of the Premier League. His status at the moment remains 50/50 and Jack Cork will likely come in if Davis can't make it back in time for week 12.

Steven Davis is still hopeful he can play some part in the upcoming Euro qualifying game against Romania on Friday after the Saints midfielder was replaced just before half-time during Saturdays’ win over Leicester City.

The Northern Ireland international has been in excellent form this season recently signing a contract extension which will tie him to Southampton until 2018 and following the superb start under Ronald Koeman Davis is keen to retain his place in the starting eleven. However initial reports suggest that his withdrawal was more of a precaution due to tightness in his hamstring and should Davis miss this weeks’ international then he should be fine for the following week when the Saints travel to Villa Park. Jack Cork or two goal hero Shane Long are options worthy of serious consideration if further tests reveal more serious damage for Steven Davis.

Southampton's Steven Davis completed more passes than the entire Aston Villa side(109 to 96).

Davis played well filling in for Morgan Schneiderlin, who missed the game with an injury. Davis has played well in a limited role this season and seems to be improving despite being 28 years old. If the Saints don't get healthy soon, Davis can be an interesting fantasy wild card for managers looking to take risks.

Steven Davis and Dani Osvaldo have both been declared fit for tomorrow's game against Stoke.

It's unknown if either will get the start as Southampton played great last weekend without them and manager Mauricio Pochettino may decide to stay with a winning side. If either of them starts the game, Osvaldo is a fantasy option, but there are many better picks.

Steven Davis and Dani Osvaldo will both be assessed before the game this weekend against Stoke City.

Both are recovering from minor injuries and missed the game against Fulham last weekend. The bad news is that we probably won't know their status until after the fantasy deadline so I would suggest you skip on both this weekend. The good news is that they should be back in action soon and the injuries don't seem to be a problem going forward.

Steven Davis is a doubt for Southampton's match against Fulham this weekend due to an injury.

Davis has "picked up a slight knock" according to the Daily Echo and is a doubt for the weekend. He will be evaluated further before a decision is made. Davis has been earning more playing time as of late and seems like an important piece for Pochettino going forward. Avoid him for the weekend but keep an eye out for him in the future, especially if he secures a starting spot.

Southampton midfielder Steven Davis is determined to fight for a starting spot on the Saints' squad after scoring two goals against Barnsley in the Capital One Cup.

Davis has lost his place in the squad after the emergence of young players and the signing of Victor Wanyama. Even with his impressive display against Barnsley, I don't anticipate he will get enough playing time to secure a starting spot anytime soon, so using him on your fantasy team is very risky.
