James Ward-Prowse Transfer News: With Southampton on the verge of relegation from the Premier League, James Ward-Prowse is prepared to quit the club this summer, according to sources.
The Saints are now in last place, with just 23 points after 31 games played, and are only four points away from safety. While a drop to the Championship is still possible, it’s getting more and more likely by the week.
According to sources, if St. Mary’s goes down, a number of important players, including Kyle Walker-Peters, Mohammed Salisu, Armel Bella-Kotchap, and Romeo Lavia, would quit the team.
He is a professional footballer for England who excels in set pieces. Even though he has been a member of the club’s roster since he was eight years old, Ward-Prowse is ready to move on.
