Southampton live updates



Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Rickie Lambert love Southampton

The Premier League's surprise package of the season launch a new state-of-the-art training facility tomorrow knowing they can already lay claim to one of the country's finest youth academies.

Southampton have produced the likes of Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale and Luke Shaw in recent years, while their lofty position in the league table is testament to a club who can prosper immediately after selling a string of star players.

Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren and Callum Chambers all departed for teams with more financial clout, yet the Saints are currently second only to Chelsea in the table after ten matches.

In this video, Bale and Walcott are joined by a number of players past and present, who explain what makes the club ideal for young players ahead of the unveiling of their new training facility.
