Southampton are set to launch a week-long training camp out in Nairobi, Kenya in the coming week.

According to a report from The Star, a leading news outlet out in Kenya, a coaching course is to be hosted to oversee and refine the younger talent out in the country.

The academy delegation training will be led by Daniel Maye, who works as Southampton’s Lead Youth Development Phase Coach, and he will be joined by two other development coaches, along with the club’s Global Football Development Manager Andrew Martino.

The Football Kenya Federation have already cherry-picked the most promising talent across the country to be included on the 30-man shortlist for the training camp, allowing Saints’ experts to oversee the best Kenyan footballers around.

It’s stated in the report that the camp will be held at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies in the capital city of Nairobi.

Saints have a glittering reputation for their development of youth and will hope that their ventures to Africa will be rewarding.
