“The squad has been in at Staplewood Campus throughout the weekend, working on putting things right for the club’s supporters.

“As the first step towards that, the group has decided that they wish to donate their wages from the day of the Leicester game to Saints Foundation, in order to help the vital work that is conducted by the charity.”

The Saints Foundation works with children, young people and at-risk adults in the Southampton area to develop their potential and transform lives.

Southampton is currently bracing themselves for two consecutive trips to face Manchester City within the next six days, in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday and then in the Premier League on Saturday.
