SOUTHAMPTON would like to go back on a loan for Manchester United whizkid Brandon Williams.
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl wants more depth in the full-back areas and likes Williams’ ability to play both left and right.
Hasenhuttl tried to borrow Williams, 20, from United in January, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to let him go.
Southampton will be hoping Solskjaer will reconsider his position for next season, with Williams starting just three games this season.
Rico Henry of Brentford is another name the Saints might consider this summer, especially if the Bees don’t win the promotion and Ryan Bertrand walks away for free.
Meanwhile, they are keen to sign Theo Walcott for good this summer after being impressed with his performance and attitude this season.
Saints typically hunt younger reinforcements, but will make an exception for Lender Walcott.
The 47-caps England star, now 32, has impressed since arriving from Goodison Park in January and set up Nathan Redmond’s winner against Burnley on Sunday.
Walcott will be a free agent when his contract at Everton expires in June, but he is confident his future will be determined soon.

He said: “To be completely honest, I was just anxious to get in shape. As easy as that.
“This thing will work out, I’m sure. I’m just taking care of myself and working hard for Southampton right now.
“We will see what the future holds.”
