Jose Fonte Sends Heartfelt Message to Southampton Fans

Jose Fonte has sent a heartfelt message to Southampton‘s fans after his exit to West Ham.

The Portuguese defender ended his seven-year stay at St Mary’s last night by sealing an £8million switch to the Hammers.

His exit is no surprise as it comes after he submitted a transfer request earlier this season and found himself frozen out over his desire to leave the club.

But that still doesn’t stop it being hard for Saints fans and Fonte to deal with.

He was captain of the club and had helped them to promotions from League One and the Championship before helping them become an established Premier League team again.

So you can understand why Fonte felt the need to post a heartfelt message to the supporters he leaves behind:

Fonte leaves St Mary’s after making 288 appearances in eight seasons at the club.

He should now go straight into Slaven Bilic’s team once he becomes available and is still good enough, despite being 33, to make a big impact for his new club.
