Pretty worrying if this was true, the boarding organising stuff without consultation from Hasenhuttl.
Southampton’s board were ready to accept Leeds United’s bid for Che Adams this month, before Ralph Hasenhuttl blocked the striker’s departure, according to a report from the Daily Express.

It was arguably an intriguing pursuit. Despite Adams not scoring for the Saints since his summer move, he has been involved in recent weeks and has helped Hasenhuttl’s men produce a stunning turnaround in form.
The persistence in the rumours linking him with a move to Leeds while he was involved however, hinted that there may be something for the Whites fans to get excited about.
But those hopes appear to have now been dashed.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Adams was keen to stay at St Mary’s after holding talks with Hasenhuttl about his future.
And it now appears that it was not only Adams who had to be talked round by Hasenhuttl.
The Daily Express is reporting that the Southampton board were ready to accept a loan bid from Leeds for Adams.
The move would have included a clause that would see the striker’s switch to Elland Road become permanent for £10 million in the summer.
