SAINTS keeper Harry Lewis is reportedly set to be reuniting with former boss Mark Hughes at Bradford City.

MailOnline claim Saints are set to let go the 24-year-old, who signed for the south coast side from Shrewsbury Town back in 2015.

The report claims Lewis will sign a two-year deal with the League Two Bantams. Nothing has yet been confirmed by either club.

Lewis has not featured in a first-team match since May 2018, during a loan spell at Dundee United.

His most recent game for Saints came in a 5-0 FA Cup loss against Arsenal in January 2017.

Following injuries to both Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy in the space of a few days in December, it seemed as though Lewis may get an opportunity to make his Premier League debut.

However, Saints swiftly moved to snap up 40-year-old free agent Willy Caballero.

Asked to assess the progress of Lewis earlier this season, Hasenhuttl told the Daily Echo: "He is a fantastic guy. He is working very hard with our goalkeeper team.

"He is the guy who is our number three. It was a pity that we couldn’t give him more chances to play so far, but I think he made some good progress in his game.”
