Charlie Austin and Mario Lemina have been left out of Southampton's 26-man squad for the club's pre-season tour of Austria.
The duo's omission has come as a surprise to many supporters, especially in the case of midfielder Lemina, who has become somewhat of a fan favourite on the south coast since his arrival from Juventus in 2017.
Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has made it clear that striker Charlie Austin now has no future at the club as he looks to build a completely new fresh, young squad on the south coast, and last week made a statement by signing 22-year-old forward Che Adams from Birmingham City.
Adams' arrival leaves the 30-year-old completely frozen out, with Danny Ings - who has now made his switch from Liverpool permanent - workhorse Shane Long and 19-year-old Michael Obafemi all also ahead of him in the pecking order at St Mary's.
Austin is expected to depart the club in the coming weeks, with Aston Villa and Crystal Palace both reportedly interested in capturing the front man's signature ahead of the upcoming 2019-20 campaign.
