The January British transfer window closed on Monday night with Chipolopolo striker Emmanuel Mayuka staying at Premier League side Southampton.
It was expected that Southampton would send Mayuka on loan as the player has failed to break into the best 11 since joining the Saints on a five-year deal from Young Boys in August 2012.
Despite scoring 32 goals in two seasons at Young Boys Mayuka has only managed score one goal for Southampton.
The striker spent the 2013-2014 season on loan at French side Sochaux after failing to command a place in the Southampton starting line up in his debut season at the club.
Mayuka does not seem to be in coach Ronald Koeman’s plan.
When releasing the striker early for the 2015 Africa Cup, Koeman said:”Mayuka will go now this weekend because we have more players available in that position.”
Meanwhile, Mayuka scored one of Zambia’s two goals at the AFCON as Chipolopolo exited the tounament without a single win and finished bottom of Group B with two points.
