The Saints have seen midfielder Orio Romeu be linked with a move away from the club this month. Spanish side Celta Vigo seem to be close to signing the former Chelsea man, as per the reports. The reports also go onto state that the deal is expected to be completed this month.
Southampton fans: Can Reed replace Romeu?
Romeu needs to stay!
Reed will do a good job
This has left many Saints fans talking about Reed, who too is a central midfielder himself. When a Saints-related Twitter page called ‘Bxdnarek’ posted about Reed, many Saints fans shared their opinions about the player.
Reed isn’t good enough at this level

Not going to happen I’m afraid

If that’s even possible

If we let him go I’d recall Harrison Reed. About time he is given a chance

Harrison reed is not the answer we will need proper cover or do we think were safe

In the 2017-18 season, he was on loan at Norwich City during the Canaries’ stint in the Championship. He made 43 appearances in all competitions for them, scoring once that campaign and also got four assists.
Last season, he was on loan at Blackburn Rovers. He made only three appearances in all competitions. This season, the midfielder is on loan at Fulham, where he has made 17 appearances in the Championship so far.
What do we think?
Reed has shown that he can be a regular at the Championship level, as evident from spells at Fulham and Norwich. If he were to come back, he may not be able to do a job on a regular basis. And at the age of 24, it is best if Southampton sell him and get some money from his sale.
