Chelsea striker Armando Broja moved to Southampton during the summer transfer window on a season-long loan deal.

Broja is highly rated in the Chelsea camp but was sent out on loan to get valuable experience.

The 20-year-old got a starting role in the league for the first time and scored a stunning strike as Southampton defeated Leeds United 1-0 last weekend.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has hailed the attitude of the Albanian international and admitted that he could get a starting role in the their upcoming game against Burnley.

“Armando had a slow start here, but I think he’s showed very quickly that he has some weapons he can use,” he told a pre-match press conference.

“And because of the injury to Che it was the first chance to start and I think he grabbed his chance with both hands.

“I think the last game showed that the attack was a little bit more dangerous for the opponent [than in previous matches], we had some very good chances created. Armando was one part of the attack, but also the other guys that played are doing a really good job.

“There’s always another a good argument for giving another chance to play together and we will have a look at this before the weekend.”
