    Seeing the video on Saints twitter was a nice watch, he's not always been without fault but there is no doubting Yoshida's professionalism and dedication over his time at the club. Sensibly I think we all knew he was likely to move on so it's understandable all around but still tinged with sadness.

    Best of luck Maya, as per twitter a saint forever.

    and Danso is staying? They rated Danso at CB over Yoshida? Interesting.

    Sad for this. One of the longest lasting players to leave. Never as bad as some made out. Great squad player who never complained.

    Good luck Maya. Always a saint

    Dare I say it but a good move for him, possibly bigger club and first team player. Fair play to the man.

    I'm in eelpie's boat. Sad to see Maya go, thanks for the memories, wish him all the best for the future.

    Try looking at it realistically. Maya is 4th choice. He's out of contract in the summer and won't get another one.

    In my opinion, he's been a brilliant servant to the club and has my total respect. I thank him for the great things he's done for Saints and wish him well. This move gives him a chance to have one more episode in his career.

    But for the rest of this season, if we need to call on a 4th choice, this means we can assess Danso in his proper position. Otherwise he'll sit on the bench and we'll never find out how good or bad he is. And hopefully, in a few games time, we'll be safe enough to give him game time if we want to.

    I will never forget his humble speech to those in hospitality after the 0-9 loss. He didn't have to do it but insisted it was his duty.

    I'm pleased to say I got to shake his hand. Great loyal servant to Saints.

    Not sure why Ralph doesn't rate him, but I always thought he should have been out there. Under rated player in my opinion. This leaves us weaker.

Captain of his country for 100 caps. Class act. The kind of player we need more of not less of.

    Best of luck Yoshi and thank you.
    Absolutely this. Well done Maya Yoshida; a much better player than many on here are claiming. Great Clubman too.

    Sorry to see Yoshi go. He was a great servant to the club. Best of luck for the future.

    His dedication and professionalism meant he was always improving, and the fact he always gave it everything made him one of my favourite players.

    He reached 100 international caps and was given the international captain’s armband thanks to his efforts here, and he truly earned them.

    He’ll always be very welcome back at St Mary’s.

    I for one have never been happy with Stephens as 1st choice or otherwise.

    As for Maya, good luck to him as he's been a decent pro for a long time.
    But there's no point having five very average CBs when four very average CBs will do.

    Sampdoria now have a small collection of ex-saints: Gabbiadini, Gaston Ramirez and now Yoshida.

    At his very best he was bang average. I'm not in the least bit sad to see him go except our penny pinching board have not replaced him with anyone better or worse.

    What a ridiculous post.

    You obviously never saw him at his best. Key part of our defence.

    And, "sad that the penny-pinching board haven't replaced him with anyone worse" ??????

    Brilliant and Ioyal servant to the club who made had some great games for us. That said, his best days are behind him and he wasn't getting any game time here and was unlikely to unless we had a couple of injuries or suspensions. With his contract up in the summer, it made sense to let him go. We have 4 CB's for 2 places so we'll be fine for the rest of the season.

    Given that you live in Bordeaux, I hope your judgement on wine is better than your assessment of Maya Y.

    Wherever you put his abilities as a PL player, I'd say he's been reasonable overall, he's been a great servant to the club and by all accounts a real nice and honourable fella.

    Gets my thanks, respect and best wishes for the future.

    Very sad day as we say farewell to one of our most loyal, uncontroversial and committed Saints player's of all time and the UK leaves the European Union, both decisions that we will regret.

    Good luck Maya, hope we will see you back here one day.

    Good luck Yoshi, may we have the chance to see you soon.
    All of this.

    Otsukaresama de****a, Yoshi!

    Its a shame its ended like this but hes played, what?, 5 minutes since October so I can see why they've let him go.
    Its a good move for him, he will get game time which didnt look likely here.

    I’ve always quite liked Sampdoria since the days of watching football Italia on channel 4 in the 90s, have been lucky enough to visit Genoa to see them play but hopefully the clubs have built a connection and part of the deal is we get to play them away pre-season.

    That would be great for a pre season friendly. I too loved watching Sampdoria years ago with Mancini, Lombardo etc and have been to watch them many years ago. Interesting game with everyone standing on seats and smoking weed around me and a pre match pint of Tennants Super in the Ultra,s bar!

    Torino 1-3 Sampdoria today with Gaston scoring twice and Yoshi again not getting off the bench.

    Wonder if they fancy a few more, Forster, Elyounoussi, Hoedt, Vestergaard, Carrillo and Lemina could all be available in a few months!

    Didn't make it off the bench today despite a 1-5 home defeat to Fiorentina. Ramirez and Gabbiadini played, Gabbi grabbed the consolation in the last minute.

    The Fiorentina player in the photo looks uncannily like Marian Pahars
