Will Smallbone and Dan N’Lundulu have responded to Callum Slattery’s first Instagram post since he joined Eerste divisie outfit De Graafschap on loan.
The Southampton academy graduate left St Mary’s for the Dutch side on deadline day, penning a deal until the end of the season having struggled for first-team action under Ralph Hasenhuttl this term – he has only appeared for the youth teams so far in the current campaign.
However, he recently made his debut for De Graafschap, where he then uploaded an Instagram post to commemorate the occasion alongside the caption: “Debut and 3 points ✅ Ja ja De Graafschap”.
Following the uploading of his post, two more Southampton academy graduates in Smallbone and N’Lundulu responded.
Smallbone – who started and scored in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Huddersfield this term – simply liked the post, whereas N’Lundulu posted 12 heart emojis to express his love for Slattery and his efforts over in the Netherlands.
