Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that striker Emmanuel Mayuka has "no future" at the club.
Reports have suggested that his transfer to Russia is on the verge of being completed, and Koeman has now confirmed that he will be leaving the club this summer.
"We have a lot of young people coming into the squad and we have enough strikers and for Mayuka there is no future in the club. There is some contact with [head of football development] Les Reed about Mayuka," Koeman told reporters.
The Zambian international failed to find the back of the net in any of his 16 league appearances for the Saints.
