Southampton boss, Ralph Hasenhuttl, has said the club will be ready to sacrifice their resources to lift the standard of the team.
Hasenhuttl is willing to sign ten new players recommended by the club agents and the technical crew but they are facing financial challenges at the moment.
Teenage midfielder Alex Jankewitz, 19, who has reportedly handed in a transfer request in a bid to leave the club, made his debut in a defeat by Dean Smith’s stubborn Aston Villa side.

Hasenhuttl said post-match: “Good players cost a lot of money and we don’t have money. What should I tell you?
“If it is up to me I take ten players now. It is not possible for us.
“We brought [debutant midfielder Alex] Jankewitz in and next young lad who steps up now maybe has to play against Man United from the beginning.
“That is the way we are working at the minute. That is the way we try to be competitive and not moaning about it.”
