Reports: Southampton’s Caceres in talks with Celtic & Leicester

Southampton’s unsettled defender Martin Caceres is ready to quit the south coast side with several clubs interested in his services, according to reports.

The Uruguayan, who can play anywhere across defence, only made one appearance for the Saints in the whole of last season – playing 90 minutes in a 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough this month.

The Sun claims that the 30-year-old has made up his mind and will quit Southampton in search of regular first-team football.

He only joined the Saints in February and will become a free agent next month once his deal at the Premier League club comes to an end.

The report continues by suggesting that Caceres will not be short of offers with Leicester and Watford providing options if he wants to remain in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the Uruguayan international is understood to have been contacted by Celtic as Brendan Rodgers looks to reinforce his defence ahead of next season’s Champions League campaign.
