Ronald Koeman key to Steven Caulker redemption at Southampton

Steven Caulker has the potential to be a fine addition.

Only three years after having the world at his feet, Steven Caulker has arrived at Southampton on a season-long loan hoping Ronald Koeman can help restore his damaged reputation.

It was June 2012 when Caulker signed a new four-year contract at Tottenham, having impressed during a loan spell at then-Premier League newcomers Swansea. Caulker's form at the Liberty Stadium also earned him a place in Great Britain's Olympic squad for the London games and a maiden England cap in the 4-2 friendly defeat...

Southampton seek to balance Premier League with European adventure

Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie is out to impress this season after moving to the south coast from Feyenoord.

Southampton were tipped for relegation this time last year and now they need to balance Premier League football with exploits in Europe. Here's a look at what to expect from Ronald Koeman's men as we approach the new campaign.


The only way could be down as Koeman will find it hard to emulate last season's seventh-place finish, so cementing themselves in the top 10 and an extended cup run would represent a satisfactory campaign.

Biggest concern

Whether the squad possesses enough depth to...

Saints start Europa League adventure as Vitesse await Koeman's men

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti discusses Southampton's new signing, Dutch midfielder Jordy Clasie.

When Southampton return to European competition after a 12-year absence this week it is not just their own supporters who should be cheering on Ronald Koeman's men but the whole country.

English clubs have for too long treated the Europa League with disdain, viewing the competition as the poor relation to the Champions League, the consolation prize for failing to muscle in on the top four. Last season Premier League participation ended embarrassingly in the last-16 stage despite Tottenham and Liverpool...

Jordy Clasie a fine Morgan Schneiderlin replacement for Koeman

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti discusses Southampton's latest signing, Dutch midfielder Jordy Clasie.

The future is bright for Southampton. The future is Oranje.

When Saints kick off their new Premier League campaign on Aug. 9 they will have no fewer than five players who have graced the Eredivisie in their ranks, with a midfielder named Jordy the latest "Clasie" addition to Ronald Koeman's side.

Clasie's move to St Mary's from Koeman's old club Feyenoord has been a year in the making and the midfielder was quickly identified as Morgan Schneiderlin's replacement when rumours of the Frenchman's inevitable...

Schneiderlin leaves Southampton for United with Saints' best wishes

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Morgan Schneiderlin is a good fit for Manchester United.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Morgan Schneiderlin is a good fit for Manchester United.

Southampton supporters have long expected the departure of Morgan Schneiderlin but the Frenchman owes a debt of gratitude to Ronald Koeman for persuading him to extend his stay for an extra season.

When Schneiderlin released an explosive tweet reading "six years of an amazing journey DESTROYED in one hour!" after the Saints hierarchy blocked a move to Tottenham last summer, an acrimonious exit appeared the only outcome.

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire

The summer transfer market is already being shaped by players whose previous clubs proved unable or unwilling to keep them when their contracts were expiring.

Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, James Milner, Danny Ings and Glen Johnson have all moved on this summer and the window next year will be no different.

As a host of players enter the final year of their deals, coveted footballers can find themselves in an even more enviable position when they are able to enter the market without...
