Sofiane Boufal has reportedly been frozen out at Southampton following a dressing room bust-up with manager Mark Hughes.
The 24-year-old is said to have angered Hughes by refusing to warm up during last week's 3-2 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League.
Boufal's absence from the Saints' squad for their last two matches, including Sunday's FA Cup semi-final clash with Chelsea, has raised eyebrows.
According to The Sun, the Moroccan winger has been banished as a result of his actions 10 days ago, rather than being "ill" as his manager claimed.
Hughes is alleged to have thrown a water bottle across the St Mary's dressing room when giving the £16m signing a dressing down, leaving his future on the south coast in serious doubt.
