Despite a slow finish to the season, Armando Broja was a popular figure at Southampton, where he was on loan this year.
Their supporters appear to blame his decline on the team’s decline in the second half of the season, rather than the other way around.
Many hoped he would stay on the South Coast, but his end-of-season Instagram post thanking fans appears to have dashed those hopes.
“I want to say thank you so much to the players you guys taught me so much this year. I loved every minute with you lads it was honestly something special to me. You have not only become brothers to me but also family. I will miss you guys!”
