Bournemouth loanee Jack Stephens coy over Southampton future


Bournemouth loanee Jack Stephens is coy over his future with parent club Southampton.

The 28-year-old made the move across the south coast to switch St Mary's for Vitality Stadium on transfer deadline day last month, agreeing a season-long loan deal.

Asked in an interview with BBC Radio Solent whether we had seen the last of him in a Saints shirt, Stephens replied: “I have been there 11-and-a-half years. It's a long time to be at a club.

“I have got some really good memories of playing for Southampton, it's been an absolutely amazing ride.

“Whether it is the last time, I'm not sure. It's not something I am looking too far ahead with.

“I am here for a season-long loan, what will happen at the end of that – it's not to be spoken about now.

“It will be all spoken about at the end of the season. For now, I am enjoying being here and it's big challenges ahead but ones we are looking at facing head on.

“I have still got more than 18 months left on my contract (at Saints), so there's no need to speak at the moment.

“We will sort things out at the end of the season. For now, it's nice to focus on football.“
