‘He should be involved with the first team’ – These Southampton fans react as midfielder makes Lincoln switch

The Imps capture of Jake Hesketh has certainly got a few fans worked up on the south coast.

The attacking midfielder is a strong signing for a club at our level, a point he proved with a solid spell at Burton Albion last season. He’s young, ambitious and is highly rated at St Mary’s.

He’s had a couple of Premier League outings and at one point he was widely believed to be the next big thing to come out of their youth setup. Remember, this is the same academy that produced Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Nile Ranger….

Okay, maybe not Ranger, but Luke Shaw, Wayne Bridge and Adam Lallana have come through with the Saints. They produce good players and Hesketh was thought to be the next one on the list.

The fact they’re not letting him leave for free, or permanently, does indicate they think there’s value there, but these supporters on Twitter are not happy anyway. They think they should either sell him on or keep him at the club.

There are a few who see the value in him coming to Lincoln though, as I’m sure the academy team at Southampton do.

  1. If what I’ve read about him is true and Danny can tap into it, he could be our best signing to date. Heady days.
