Southampton made two announcements today, detailing the club's summer training camp in Austria.

Saints will be taking on Swiss side St. Gallen in their opening pre-season friendly ahead of the club's 2017/18 Premier League campaign at the end of the week-long training camp in Austria on Saturday 15th July in Switzerland.

Mauricio Pellegrino's men will then return to Southampton, before starting a secondary training camp in France on 24th July—two days after their friendly against Brentford at Griffin Park.

Saints will then conclude their French training camp with a match against Saint-Ettiene—the club former Southampton boss Claude Puel was continually linked with before employing Oscar Garcia as manager.

The article then goes on to say further domestic friendlies will be announced in due course.
