Boruc to quit Saints

Cape Town - Out-of-favour Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc concedes he may have to leave the club for good if he wants to play regular first-team football.

The 34-year-old is currently on a six-month loan at Championship outfit Bournemouth after losing his place to Saints' off-season signing Fraser Forster this term.

Boruc made headlines for all the wrong reasons last season when he allowed an up-field clearance from Asmir Begovic to bounce over his head to gift the Stoke 'keeper a bizarre goal.

Then just three weeks later, the Poland international attempted to beat Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud inside his own area, but only succeeded in losing possession and giving away a soft goal.

Boruc will remain at Dean Court until January, but with his contract at St Mary's running out at the end of the current campaign, he sees very little future for himself in Ronald Koeman's set-up.

He told the Basingstoke Gazette: "Just now I'm staying up until January. We'll see what's going to happen. If there will be something interesting coming up I may try it."

Speaking to Sky Sports, Boruc added: "I want to keep playing, that's the main thing for me, just because I was doing that all my life.

"I'm not the kind of person who can calmly sit on the bench, watching a game. I like to be in the action, so that's why probably I need to go from Southampton, if nothing's going to change.

"But Fraser Forster is a great goalkeeper. That's life."
