5 players to follow Shane Long to Southampton this summer

Jonathan BiabianySouthampton fans have had a more testing summer than any other Premier League supporters having witnessed the sale of a host of top players and the departure of their highly-rated manager.

Mauricio Pochettino led the Saints to an eighth place finish last season – a Premier League record – and was duly appointed by Tottenham Hotspur.

Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers have all departed the south coast club since and new boss Ronald Koeman has a job on his hands to rebuild the club.

Shane Long became the latest player to sign for the Saints, adding the the arrivals of Dusan Tadic, Ryan Bertrand, Graziano Pelle, Fraser Forster, Saphir Taider and Florin Gardos.

And Ronald Koeman has confirmed he is looking to add further new additions before the transfer window closes – a day most Southampton fans have been counting down the days until for months.

Here we take a look at five players who could soon be following Shane Long to St. Mary’s.
