Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt is free to find himself a new club, says manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Hoedt signed from Lazio in August 2017 but has not been involved yet under Hasenhuttl and the Saints boss admitted the 24-year-old centre-back, who has six caps for the Netherlands, could be sold if the club can find a suitable buyer.
"Nearly every player [has] played a game until now but he didn't. It's difficult," he said.
"I made a decision for (Jannik) Vestergaard, Jack Stephens at Derby. I think Jack will take the part of Maya Yoshida who is gone for one month.
"Yeah, it's not the best for Wesley, that's right. It's the same for Gabbiadini or Steven (Davis). The guys went away to find other solutions, it's better for them.
"For Wesley it can be the same. We don't send any player away but if he feels like he is not used like wants from us, he should think about it."
Hoedt started in all but one of former manager Mark Hughes' Premier League games in charge of the Saints but has yet to feature since Hasenhuttl's arrival in December.
