Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has not discounted the possibility of bringing a new goalkeeper to St Mary’s in the summer to cover for the long-term loss of Fraser Forster.

The England international could be sidelined for up to 12 months with the knee injury he sustained last month in the victory against Burnley.

Veteran shot-stopper Kelvin Davis replaced Forster in that game and is set to continue in goal for the rest of the campaign.

We have to wait until the end of the season to know exactly how long Fraser will be out.

Koeman said: “We know we have Kelvin, now we have Paulo [Gazzaniga], we have Cody Cropper and we have to make the decision at the end of the season what will be the future of the goalkeepers.

“We have to wait until the end of the season to know exactly how long Fraser will be out and, if it’s for longer, it’s an option for a new goalkeeper, yes.”

Meanwhile, midfielder Steven Davis suffered a groin injury during Northern Ireland’s 2-1 win against Finland in last weekend’s Euro 2016 qualifier.

Southampton are 1.57 to beat Hull City next weekend and 1.72 to finish in the top six this season.
