Southampton man holds talks with Ligue 1 club as he edges closer to the exit door

The Southampton fans in the Transfer Tavern are torn over whether they should keep Claude Puel for next season or not.

There is a heated debate going on in the Southampton fans’ booth here in the Transfer Tavern; some are saying that Puel needs another chance while others are claiming that he underachieved and that there are better options out there.

According to a recent report by The Sun, Claude Puel is expecting to be sacked by Southampton.

After arriving last summer from Nice, the Frenchman failed to build on their successful campaign last season with disappointing exits in the domestic cups and the Europa League.

The Saints did manage an 8th place finish, though.

However, Puel believes that he will be axed by Southampton in the summer and has already held talks with Saint-Etienne over the manager job there.

Christophe Galtier is reportedly set to be sacked by Saint-Etienne and Puel is keen to take that job if he is sacked.

Southampton have reportedly been actively looking for a new manager and are set to sack Puel this summer.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is high on their wishlist after former Hull City gaffer Marco Silva decided to join Watford.
