Ralph Hasenhuttl has confirmed that he expects Southampton to make more signings before the transfer window slams shut next month. 

The boss sat down and addressed a selection of Saints supporters at a Fans’ Forum at Staplewood on Tuesday evening, where he and other members of the board fielded questions about current affairs at the club.

Hasenhuttl was open and receptive towards the fans and was asked about whether or not he is expecting more arrivals at St Mary’s Stadium this summer.

In concise fashion, the Austrian’s answer was straightforward. Without hesitation, he simply said:

Yes.

Southampton have already signed two new players. Che Adams joined from Birmingham City for £15 million, while Moussa Djenepo was recruited from Standard Liege for £14 million. 

Danny Ings also made his move from Liverpool permanent for a figure believed to be worth £18 million as a consequence of the obligatory clause included in last year’s loan deal. 

However, despite the Saints’ business so far, it seems they are far from done in the market.
