Aribo Seeks EPL Promotion As Southampton Battle Leeds United

Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo will be craving to end the season on a high, as Southampton battle Leeds United in a Championship Playoff that will automatically guarantee a promotion to the Premier League.

The Nigerian international, who has been invited by Super Eagles head coach Finidi George for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin slated for June, will be hoping to help Southampton secure promotion to the top flight of English football.

Recall that Aribo played a key part as Southampton defeated West Brom 3-1 in the semi final of the Championship playoffs to face Leeds in the final.

Interestingly, Southampton were the only team to do the league double over Leeds United this season with the second of those wins coming on the final day at Elland Road (2-1).

Southampton will play in their first play-off final with this just their second ever play-off campaign, after a semi-final exit on penalties to Derby County in 2007. The Saints last won promotion to the Premier League in 2011-12 when finishing as Championship runners-up.
