It looked as though Saints boss Nathan Jones would try to make it a permanent switch during the January transfer window to add to his options in attack.

Although he now faces competition from rivals Bournemouth who are expected to make a late bid for Jackson.

Jackson is not the only player on the Cherries January wish list, as they are also reverting their interest back to Roma left-back Matias Vina as they grow frustrated in their wait to persuade Robin Gosens to join from Inter Milan.  

The 25-year-old has seen his chances at Roma limited under Jose Mourinho this season, with just three Serie A appearances, and 15 games where he has been left as an unused substitute.
