Southampton defender Vegard Forren has completed a move back to his former club Molde.
Forren was signed during January for a £3.5m but failed to register any playing time with the Saints' first team. His conditioning was questioned but that could not have been the only reason for the lack of playing time. He had a great opportunity to make a name for himself in the Premier League but that door is now closed. Thu, Jul 11, 2013 11:45:00 PM

Vegard Forren will be fighting for a spot in the Southampton rotation next season as he's rejected a loan offer to return to Norway.

Forren joined from Molde in January but hasn't played for the Saints yet. There were questions about his conditioning and form but its unknown why exactly he was never played. Southampton signed Dejan Lovren at center-back this summer and it seems he will be a definite starter so it will be interesting to see if Forren can find playing time.

Vegard Forren is committed to staying with Southampton and fighting for a starting spot.

The defender was acquired last season for £3.5m but he has not played a single time yet. That is believed to be because of his poor fitness form last season. It's expected that he will play this season, at least partially. It's unknown if Forren will start or if he will get consistent playing time.
