Delaney, 29, joined Dortmund in 2018 following an £18m switch from Werder Bremen.

Since arriving at the Black and Yellows, the Danish midfielder has featured in 85 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to 15 goals along the way.

However, after recently seeing his first-team place come under fire as manager Edin Terzic continues to prefer duo Jude Bellingham and Mo Dahoud.

With just 12-months left on his deal, according to a recent report from ESPN, one club who have their eye on the Dortmund midfielder is Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Saints.

It has been claimed that due to the short amount of time left on his deal, Dortmund could welcome summer bids within the region of just £8.6m (€10m) for Delaney.

These reports come at a time when the German side is expecting to undergo a summer overhaul.

Attacking duo Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland continue to be linked with summer moves to a host of top European clubs.
