Southampton fans wonder which players will stay or leave this summer

Southampton find themselves in a very tricky situation as their Premier League status hangs in the balance.

As it stands, the coastal club are three points from safety and have six games left to save their season.

Last weekend, Mark Hughes’s side had a tough encounter against Arsenal, but the players held their own at the Emirates.

Shane Long managed to give Southampton the lead, and Charlie Austin also got on the scoresheet, but the Gunners fought back to earn a 3-2 triumph.

Despite the fact that the Saints lost and Jack Stephens was sent off in the dying moments, there were some positives for the fans, many of whom believe that Austin could be their saviour for the run-in.

Before the campaign comes to a close, Southampton will face Chelsea, Leicester City, Bournemouth, Everton, Swansea City and champions elect Manchester City.

The coastal club could realistically drop into the Championship, and some supporters already feel that their fate is sealed.

Handfuls of the club’s following have already been discussing which players will leave and which will remain loyal if they suffer relegation.

In the event we do go down, which players are sure to leave us, and of the ones we actually want, which are likely to stay? from r/SaintsFC
