Cardiff City interested in loan deal for Charlie Austin

Cardiff City interested in loan deal for Charlie Austin Premier League strugglers Cardiff City have joined three other clubs in the race to sign Saints striker Charlie Austin before the January transfer window slams shut at 11pm tonight, according to talkSPORT sources. The Bluebirds are looking to secure Austin on a loan deal until the end of the season but Southampton are looking for a permanent destination after coming to the conclusion he’s surplus to requirements. Since Ralph Hasenhuttl’s arrival at the start of December, the 29-year-old striker has dropped down the pecking order at St. Mary’s behind Danny Ings and even Nathan Redmond, who has often been used as a frontman.

Southampton slipped back into the bottom three as they lost 2-1 to Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Saints let yet another late goal cost them, just a week after Burnley scored in stoppage time to secure a draw against Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men.

Despite dominating the ball, Southampton went 1-0 down when Sol Bamba put Cardiff ahead in the 69th minute.

Jack Stephens then thought he secured a point for his side when he equalised in the 91st minute, only for Kenneth Zohore to win the match for Cardiff three minutes later.

Here are four things we learned from the game…

Southampton pair fit to face Arsenal.
Southampton duo Michael Obafemi and Stuart Armstrong could return for Sunday’s trip to Arsenal, according to the Daily Echo. Obafemi has been missing since December but a shortage of strikers could see him feature prominently. Danny Ings is out with a hamstring problem while Manolo Gabbiadini has been loaned out to Sampdoria. Armstrong, meanwhile, was unavailable for the 2-1 defeat at home to Cardiff City with a calf injury, but may make a welcome start. The shock loss at St Mary’s has left Saints in a perilous position, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side now 18th in the Premier League table.
