Southampton contacted recently sacked Leeds boss Jesse Marsch today over their vacant managerial position after Nathan Jones’ exit.
Jones was sacked after a torrid run of results as Saints boss, with the club now turning to Marsch in the hope he makes the move to St. Mary’s.
Marsch himself was sacked by Leeds United on February 6th after a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest so will be on the lookout for his next job.

The Saints will need someone to come in and get results immediately, with the club bottom of the Premier League with 15 points after 22 games and winless in the league since October.
