Southampton are not interested in appointing Julien Fournier as their new Director of Football.

The Frenchman has spent time at a number of Ligue 1 clubs in recent years, fulfilling a variety of roles. 

As secretary general of Marseille between 2005 and 2009, the backroom man impressed enough to be named president of Strasbourg, a role he held for around a year. 

His next chance would come as chief executive officer at Nice, where he has been in the position since 2011. 

Southampton have reshuffled their infrastructure behind the scenes in recent months, with former Director of Football Les Reed progressing to become vice-chairman. 

The much-maligned Reed was considered an obstacle to future successes for the Saints, and his reassignment along with the departure of manager Mark Hughes were well-received. 

What should Southampton's priority be in the January transfer window?
