Groningen are hoping to seal the signing of Southampton midfielder Alexandre Jankewitz.

The 19-year-old has a contract with Southampton until 2022 but has reportedly handed in a transfer request.

According to RTV Noord, Groningen are hoping to sign the Swiss U21 international. A deal is hoped for by the summer as they seek a potential replacement for Azor Matusiwa.

Speaking to RTV Noord, his agent said, “He is certainly open to a switch to Groningen. He does not want to play at Southampton, while he wants to develop. He does not want to play twenty games of ten minutes in the Premier League in the next two years, but would rather have a lot of games in the Eredivisie to his name.”

Jankewitz has made one appearance in the FA Cup this season.
