Southampton’s summer is set to get even worse as five more players look for the exit door, according to MirrorFootball.

The Saints have already seen captain Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren, Luke Shaw and Calum Chambers leave this summer, as well as manager Maurico Pochettino who joined Tottenham last month.

And they are still being forced to fight off interest for a number of their other star players, despite chairman Ralph Kruegar insisting Spurs targets Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez were ‘not for sale’.

But Kruegar’s comments appear to have upset Schneiderlin, who tweeted his anger at what could be the decision not to allow him a move away from St. Mary’s.

Schneiderlin tweeted: “6 years of an amazing journey #saintsfc DESTROYED in 1 hour !!”

The French international’s reaction could force the club to rethink their decision, which could hand Pochettino the green light to return for the midfielder and striker Rodriguez in a £30m swoop.

Other players who are also edging closer to a move away from the south coast club could include Nathaniel Clyne, Jose Fonte and Jack Cork, who are targets for Liverpool, Cardiff and Chelsea respectively.

The Saints have already secured over £90m from the sale of five first-team players but will have a tough task replacing them in time for the start of the new Premier League season in three weeks’ time.

New Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has spent around £20m on FC Twente winger Dusan Tadic and striker Graziano Pelle from Feyenoord.

And he is hoping to complete moves for Celtic and England stopper Fraser Forster and Argentine World Cup star Marco Roja before the start of the new campaign.

    What a piece of rubbish this article is. The five have told you this have they. Typical of the anti saints bandwagon. You should be looking at the rigging of the FPP by the big six and football authorities, which probably amounts to corruption, rather than picking on a team that is doing its best for the British game.

      “…according to MirrorFootball.”

      Don’t shoot the messenger, Ian.

    But you’re not a messenger, you’re an accomplice. As Aesop might say, fetch me my gun!

      An accomplice to Southampton’s catastrophic fire sale? Or an accomplice to reporting the truth that there are still more faces heading for the St. Mary’s exit door?

      I have to admit, I wish it was the former. Can you imagine the commission?
