The Republic of Ireland interantional only moved to the KC Stadium in January for £7.5m from West Brom and scored four goals in 15 games for Steve Bruce’s side.

Saints’ new manager Ronald Koeman wants the 27-year-old to form a strike partnership with Italian Graziano Pelle, who followed the Dutchman from Feyenoord.

Koeman made the former Reading forward his number one target after Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez apparently rejected a move to the south coast club.
