Koeman seeks new faces

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman hopes to bring in two new players this week.

While the Saints' outgoing players have dominated the headlines this summer, Koeman has already added seven new faces including Fraser Forster, Shane Long, Graziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic.

The Dutchman has been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid's Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld but refused to confirm his interest in the 25-year-old.

However, Koeman is confident of landing two targets ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

"I don't talk about names of players," he said.

"In two positions we are trying to bring in new players and we hope to bring (them) in this week.

"The club is doing everything for that and I hope we will finish with that this week."

Saints may have lost the likes of Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw and Calum Chambers but Koeman insists Jack Cork will not join the exodus.
