Saphir Taïder is leaving Southampton less than a month after joining the club on a season-long loan, the team announced Monday.

Taïder joined on loan from Inter Milan on Aug. 6, but has "failed to live up to the high levels of commitment expected of Southampton players."

The 22-year-old will return to Inter.

Taïder did not play in any of Saints' three Barclay Premier League matches. The midfielder's only first-team appearance came in a friendly against Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

Dani Osvaldo, who went on loan to Inter Milan from Southampton, will not be affected by the move.
