Southampton duo Mario Lemina and Wesley Hoedt finally found moves away from the club.

However, they both depart Saints for loan moves in Europe.

Gabonese midfielder Lemina has joined Turkish giants Galatasaray on a season-long loan with an option to buy next summer, according to Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, Dutch centre-back Hoedt has joined Royal Antwerp on loan.

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl made it very clear Lemina no longer had a future at the club under the Austrian’s rule.

Lemina was linked to clubs such as Manchester Untied in the summer, though it’s highly unlikely there were any grounds to said rumours.

Unlike Lemina, Hoedt was involved in Southampton’s pre-season training camps after returning from loan at Celta Vigo last season.

However, with the signing of Kevin Danso on deadline day, it was clear Hoedt’s chances of playing regular football for Saints was limited.
