Southampton defender out for the season and Sofiane Boufal discusses transfer

Moroccan international Boufal, 22, signed a five-year deal worth £60,000-a-week.

But Saints face a frantic 48-hour search for a new right back after Pied, back up to Euro 2016 winner Cedric Soares, snapped knee ligaments in training.

Pied only moved to St Mary’s from manager Claude Puel’s old club Nice last month and made one substitute appearance in Saints’ 1-1 opening day draw at home to Watford.
