Southampton is planning to contract British players this summer

Southampton plans to draw British players this summer because club leaders believe they are having a hard time losing their own core

  • Southampton is planning to rebuild their team around British players
  • Club lost the will of Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Nathaniel Clyne
  • Saints could make a £ 3 million summer move for Rangers & Scott Arfield

Southampton wants to re-deploy a British team in their team the next season in an effort to prevent another relegation fight.

The Saints recruitment team – led by the director of football organization Ross Wilson – will consciously choose to approach more players from their own country this summer.

There is a feeling in St Mary & # 39; s that part of the reason they have fought for seasons in the past is because they have left away from having a British core within their squadron.

Since 2014, the Saints have lost men such as Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Nathaniel Clyne, Callum Chambers and Jack Cork.

The team of Ralph Hassenhuttl still has a number of important British players in its ranks, James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond, Danny Ings, Shane Long, Ryan Bertrand and Angus Gunn all regularly play for the team threatened by relegation.

But the club's recruitment staff will try to increase their homegrown contingent this summer because they feel that their understanding of English football will guide them in the right direction next season.

Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield is seen as a target for the saints.

The 30-year-old already has significant Premier League experiences with Burnley and could be available for around £ 3 million.
