Former Dundee United midfielder Stuart Armstrong has been linked with a potential exit from Southampton this summer (Sun).

It’s been reported that the playmaker could leave the English Premier League club if Scotland teammate Ryan Christie makes a move to Southampton. Armstrong first joined Southampton in 2018 and he has made 104 appearances.

38 outings last season and a call-up to Scotland’s Euro 2020 squad indicated that Armstrong would again have a big part to play at Southampton this term. But he has not kicked a Premier League ball so far, left out completely against Manchester United on Sunday after finding himself on the bench away to Everton.

This was due to a minor calf problem, however. A Southampton move for Christie could be accelerated if Armstrong departs St Mary’s, with the transfer window shutting next week.

Armstrong made 150 appearances for ‘the Tangerines’ before leaving for Celtic. The Tannadice side won their most recent Scottish Premiership clash with St Johnstone 1-0.
