Travelling party for Milan confirmed

By SFC Media Wed 19 Oct Inter vs Saints

21 players have travelled to Milan for Southampton’s clash with Internazionale in the UEFA Europa League.

Saints take on the Italian giants at the San Siro on Thursday night, with a kick-off time of 6pm BST, as they look to make it seven points from their opening three group games.

Puel has included Charlie Austin, Steven Davis and José Fonte, who missed out on the previous game against Hapoel Be’er Sheva, but Ryan Bertrand has remained in England.

Fellow full-backs Matt Targett and Cédric, both of whom are working their way back to fitness after injury, have also stayed at Staplewood.

Sofiane Boufal is part of the travelling squad, meaning he could make his Saints debut on Thursday night, while youngster Olufela Olomola has also made the trip out to Italy.

The 21 players travelling are:

Fraser Forster
Stuart Taylor
Alex McCarthy
Cuco Martina
José Fonte
Jack Stephens
Maya Yoshida
Virgil van Dijk
Sam McQueen
Harrison Reed
Jordy Clasie
James Ward-Prowse
Oriol Romeu
Steven Davis
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg
Dušan Tadić
Sofiane Boufal
Olufela Olomola
