Saints sniffing around Colley

The Gambia international only made the move to Belgium from Swedish club Djurgardens IF for 2 million euros in the summer but could be set for an early exit after an impressive start to life in the Pro League.

According to reports, Colley's performances have attracted the interest of Southampton as they weigh up a move into the January transfer market to improve their defensive options.

Jose Fonte and Virgil van Dijk have formed an excellent centre-half partnership but the fear for Saints is that if one of them gets injured, with Maya Yoshida the only fit back-up as Florin Gardos works his way back from a serious knee injury.

Colley can play either as a centre-half or at left-back, filling several needs for Southampton should they decide to move for the Genk ace.
