Bertrand and Forster star in Southampton's snazzy kit reveal

To help launch their 2017-18 kits, Southampton have created a cartoon series in which a gang of their players help to unveil the new designs.

The mini-series stars Ryan Bertrand, Fraser Forster, Maya Yoshida and Manolo Gabbiadini as a crime-fighting quartet tasked with retrieving the strips after they were stolen by an as-yet unnamed foe.

There's even a little guest cameo from Saints legend Matt Le Tissier to keep an eye out for.

Southampton grew tired of dour Claude Puel and had to act decisively

Claude Puel has been sacked as Southampton manager.

Southampton executive director Les Reed has rightly been applauded for the way he has guided the club out of troubled waters to become one of the Premier League's most upwardly mobile clubs.

After all, there are not many sides who could have recovered from losing two managers of the calibre of Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman plus a host of star players and still continue to make forward strides.

I was tapped up: What happens and why clubs risk it for transfer targets

'Tapping up' Q and A: Southampton's accusations at Liverpool over Van Dijk

As Virgil van Dijk's transfer saga took a strange twist today, Shaka Hislop doesn't understand Liverpool's odd statement.

Liverpool have abandoned their hopes of signing Virgil van Dijk and apologised to Southampton for "any misunderstanding" over their interest after they were accused of "tapping up" the player.

But what is "tapping up"? The most famous case in recent history was arguably Ashley Cole's move from Arsenal to Chelsea back in 2005 when the player, as well as Chelsea and their manager Jose Mourinho, were fined.

Via email, ESPN FC asked James Hill, associate at sports law practice Onside Law, to explain...

Southampton fighting Liverpool in heated Van Dijk transfer battle

Steve Nicol weighs in on the Virgil van Dijk transfer wrangle involving Liverpool and Southampton.

It is the metaphorical two-fingered salute Southampton fans have dreamed of seeing their club serve up to Liverpool for the past three summers.

As news began to emerge on Monday that captain Virgil van Dijk had told Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp he wants to move to Merseyside, supporters on the south coast experienced that all-too-familiar sinking feeling. After all, the five-time European champions have taken pretty much everything that isn't nailed down at St Mary's, barring the tea lady...
