Martin one of leading contenders for Southampton job

Russell Martin is one of the leading candidates to become the next Southampton head coach.

The club are in the process of interviewing candidates and nothing has been decided yet by way of a chosen successor to Ruben Selles.

But the current Swansea boss is understood to have a strong chance of landing the role this summer, as the Saints look to get promoted straight back to the Premier League next year.

Southampton want a head coach who prefers to dominate possession on the field and develop players, and the club are looking to secure alignment between the ownership, incoming director of football Jason Wilcox and the new first-team head coach.

The club have earmarked the start of pre-season in early July as the next boss' starting date, giving them time to secure the right man.
