VIDEO: Southampton Give Fascinating Insight into Signings of Juanmi, Cedric Soares and Maarten Stekelenburg

Southampton have given fans a fascinating insight into what it takes to sign a new player – starting with the summer acquisitions of Juanmi, Cedric Soarez and Maarten Stekelenburg.

Speaking to Executive Director Les Reed, Director of Scouting and Recruitment Ross Wilson as well as the players and other back room staff, the Saints YouTube channel’s ‘The March’ is around 30 minutes of pure gold.

It starts with what Reed and Wilson – along with Ronald Koeman and his staff – believe the squad needs and moves through early negotiations with other clubs and players to agreeing terms, completing the transfer and the first day a new signing arrives at their Staplewood training ground.

Current club captain Kelvin Davis also takes time out to talk about his role in a new player moving to Southampton.

And the episode also includes Wilson’s verdict on 16-year-old star Callum Slattery after he signed a new long-term professional contract with the club.
