Claude Puel has provided an injury update ahead of Southampton’s clash against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
Puel has no fresh injury concerns for the trip to White Hart Lane, and there is also positive news for Jeremy Pied and Charlie Austin.
“The long-term injuries are still out like Virgil, Matt Targett and Alex McCarthy. He’s not available for the moment but Jeremy Pied will come back with the Under-23s which is a good thing,” Puel said.
“For Charlie, he did light training with us this morning without any opponents and it was great to see him. We will see when he can come back with the group, with intensity and opposition.
“It was also important to see Martin Caceres for his two first games for around 15 months so it’s a long time.
“It was important for him and now he’s available for the team and he will provide competition for Yoshida and Stephens.
“It’s a good thing for the next month because we have to play every three days and it’s good to have of solutions.”
