Harrison Reed Leaves St Mary's On Loan !
Wednesday, 5th Jul 2017 20:00 by Arron Sanders
Arron Sanders looks at Harrison Reed's loan move to Norwich City and ponders whether it will enable him to come back to St Mary's and challenge for a first team place.
Saints midfielder Harrison Reed has joined Norwich City on a season-long loan deal, as announced by the club this afternoon.
Reed who is highly regarded amongst the clubs coaching staff, having come through the club's youth academy system making his debut aged just 17.
However, Reed has found himself down the pecking order at St. Mary's in recent seasons and his first-team chances have been limited.
The former England under-20 international made just three Premier League appearances last season after making 10 the previous year.
This coming season seems to suggest that his chances may be just as limited with Oriol Romeu, Steven Davis , Jordy Clasie, James Ward Prowse and Pierre Emile Hojbjerg all ahead of him in the pecking order in the centre of midfield.
New Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino is happy to send Reed out on loan so that he can get some regular football under his belt before returning to fight for his place in the Saints team next season.
Are you happy to see Harry Reed go out on Loan Saints fans, hopefully he gets the game time he needs to make the jump to the next level.

Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
Guidolin and Conte- An Italian Managerial Head to Head by BarneyLW
A different league in a different country for two familiar foes; on Sunday Francesco Guidolin's Swansea host Antonio Conte's Chelsea side. So how does the head to head record look from their previous encounters in Italy?
The Mood: What's going on at Swansea City? by BarneyLW
There is nothing new or indeed out of the ordinary with a defeat being met by raucous displeasure among the Jack Army. There is nothing particularly new about a hyperbolic spread of opinion in where things should be going better, or if things really are that bad at all. But there is a strange feeling around Swansea City at the moment.
