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...

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...

Southampton remove A's and O's for charity blood drive

For one week only, Southampton have removed all the A's and O's from their official Twitter account to show their support for National Blood Week.

As such, the club are currently calling themselves "S uth mpt n FC".

The Premier League side have dropped the aforementioned vowels as part of the #MissingType social media campaign, which has been launched by NHS Blood and Transplant in hope of helping to boost the number of people donating blood.

Fonte leads from the back as Schneiderlin and Wanyama star

Jose Fonte has formed the basis for a fine season by Southampton.

It's been an incredible season from Southampton after a summer of upheaval that would have been enough to send most clubs spiralling. After losing some of their best players and their manager, those who came in did wonders as Saints finished in the top half. Although a top four spot eluded them as the season wore on, it's still been a great time on the south coast.
