Southampton defender Cuco Martina is reportedly set to be sold this summer as Claude Puel looks to find an attacking option.

The 26-year-old arrived at St Mary’s last summer but struggled to force his way into contention under Ronald Koeman as he played just 15 times, although his one strike was a contender for goal of the season.

Martina joined the Saints from FC Twente and reports claim a return to the Eredivisie could be on the cards as new boss Puel looks for a more attacking full-back.

The 26-year-old only signed a two-year deal last summer and it is likely his time on the south coast will be over before the close of the transfer window.

Portugal international Cedric Soares was the first choice for most of 2015-16 and it is understood a new deal is expected to be sent his way in the next few weeks.
