Southampton manager, Nathan Jones stated the two players are not available for selection against Bees.

“They’re in the building but we’re limited with what we can do with them because of the work permit situation,” Jones told reporters ahead of the game.

“You’re better off ringing the Home Office to find out. We can keep asking but until we get clarification on their work permits, neither will be involved.”

Southampton occupy last position on the Premier League table.
