Tony Pulis believes Southampton have solved the puzzle of bringing through academy players - but warned that tempting offers from other clubs could still see that homegrown talent fly the nest.
Southampton have drawn the plaudits for their attractive football under Mauricio Pochettino and the backbone of the Argentinian's side are products of Saints' youth academy.

They haven't just stumbled over it. They have the jigsaw sorted out and all the pieces are in the right place, we don't do that a lot in this country.
I know a little about the club and there are people who have been there for years and years. They have a good scouting set-up and the people who work there, even before you become a professional, are very good lads.
They don't worry about just the technical side of it, they look at attitude, commitment and responsibility. Most of the lads who have come out of that club are not only good players, they are good lads.
???? come on people, sorry to disappoint u but I'm strictly #chicks only ??
Thanks for clearing that up, Ash.
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has promised that the club's owners are committed to staying at the Sky Bet Championship outfit for the long term despite announcing the biggest losses by any English club last season.
– QPR chairman Tony Fernandes.
Relegation wasn't part of the plan and it has cost us financially and emotionally, but I and my fellow shareholder are fighters. We are committed and here for the long term.
Achieving promotion this season is not critical to our long-term strategy, but it remains our short-term goal.
If we fail in our bid for promotion, the support is there and there is no need for any more advances to build a squad.
We are now in a position where we can work with what we have, and raise capital to invest in the squad by selling players who are not part of the manager's plans.
I'm Working hard to get back on the pitch soon,hopefully against Barcelona :) !
