Southampton manager, Ruben Selles has said Joe Aribo will get his chance to play for the team soon.
Aribo has not made an appearance in the Premier League since Selles took charge of the team.
The Nigeria international has not been included in the matchday squad for six consecutive games.
The midfielder was a key player under Ralph Hasenhuttl earlier in the campaign and also featured prominently under Nathan Jones.
Selles said Aribo is working hard and will get his chance soon.
“Joe Aribo and Mislav Orsic are good players and are working well as much as the other ones,” Selles told a press conference on Friday.
“When the time comes, if I decide that they can come into the pitch, they will be ready because they are two great boys and they are working really hard.”
