Southampton’s scouts, meanwhile, have been busy at work scouting six-a-side pitches in London and, according to executive director Les Reed, they have brought three or four into the academy. (Daily Mail)

Reed is also in the news for saying a foreign player quota could an ‘hinder English players’ progress’. (ESPN FC)

Skipper Jose Fonte is still ‘waiting’ for an improved contract offer from Saints. (Daily Echo)
