Rodriguez (knee) could play in an U-21 match Tuesday, and then possibly feature in the season-finale May 24 against Manchester City, manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday.

Rodriguez has not made a single appearance this season after suffering a torn ACL last year, and while a return would be great for Rodriguez and the club, it's a minimal fantasy impact in the short-term.

Southampton hopes to agree to a new five-year contract with Rodriguez (knee) this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

The striker returning to training last week after knee ligament damage, and Southampton is working to halt transfer interest from Tottenham, Manchester City, and Liverpool. He has yet to make an appearance under manager Ronald Koeman.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez rejoined first-team training Wednesday for the first time since suffering a torn ACL last April.

Rodriguez has not played since tearing the ligament, and while he may be able to make an appearance in a Premier League match before the season ends, he's unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact.

Manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday that Rodriguez is starting to train with the first-team, but he is still at least four weeks away from being considered for a first-team match.

Rodriguez has not played this season after suffering a torn ACL last April, and while he may be able to make at least one appearances before the season ends, he isn't likely to have a major impact.

Rodriguez is progressing in his recovery from ACL surgery and has a chance to play for Southampton before the end of the season, according to ESPN UK.

Rodriguez suffered a torn ACL last April and had his rehab delayed by a knee infection, but he is finally back in light training and will need to get himself in game-shape with the Saints' U-21s before seeing any action with the first team. The Englishman is reportedly determined to help his club to a top-four finish, however, and it sounds like he will do everything in his power to make it happen.

Manager Ronald Koeman said Friday that Rodriguez (knee) is unlikely to return to training before the end of the season.

Rodriguez suffered a torn ACL last year and has hit a number of setbacks in his recovery, so it's not overly surprising that he won't play this season. He was a big transfer name after scoring 16 league goals last season, but it's unclear if teams will be willing to make an offer this summer given how long he's been out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez, who has been the subject of multiple transfer rumors involving at least Liverpool and Tottenham, is hoping to return from his torn ACL in late February, ESPN reports.

Rodriguez suffered the injury in early April last year and has yet to resume even light training with the squad. Given such a lengthy time away, it wouldn't be surprising if his return estimate was delayed again, which means he'll only have a handful of games to produce.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman expects Rodriguez to be out of action for another six weeks as he continues to recover from a long-term knee injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Rodriguez has been out for more than eight months after rupturing a cruciate ligament in April. Southampton was originally hoping the striker would return by the end of the 2014, but he is likely to be out of action until February.
