Southampton have sold Vegard Forren back to former club Molde just six months after signing him, Press Association Sport understands.

The 25-year-old Norway international was linked with the likes of Liverpool and Everton before joining Saints for a reported £3.5million.

Forren was Southampton's only signing during the January transfer window and penned a three-and-a-half-year deal at St Mary's.

However, the defender underwhelmed manager Mauricio Pochettino and his staff, failing to make a single first-team appearance for the club.

Now he is on his way back for former club Molde, where he will link up again with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Press Association Sport understands Forren's move is permanent and that the club will not lose much money on the deal.

Another leaving Southampton is midfielder Richard Chaplow. A part of the side that secured back-to-back promotions from League One to the top flight, the 28-year-old's contract has been mutually terminated allowing him to move to Millwall.

Saints confirmed the two departures on their website, adding: "Southampton football club would like to wish Richard and Vegard the very best in their future careers."

The duo are unlikely to be the last to leave the club this summer.

Billy Sharp, Dean Hammond and Tadanari Lee are among players told they can leave by manager Pochettino, as are Lee Barnard and Steve de Ridder.

Saints have so far only brought in Lyon defender Dejan Lovren, although a move for Celtic's Victor Wanyama is understood to be close to completion.
