Southampton Nathan Jones has been announced as their new manager, replacing Ralph Hasenhuttl. who had just been laid off last week with a mission to survive in the Premier League this season.

The 49-year-old Welshman has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract. “Southern Saints” completed with Chris Cohen and Alan Sheehan, who will be the coach of the first team with him. And will take charge of the team’s first game against Liverpool this weekend. And will use the World Cup break to prepare the team for the next half of this season.

Jones, who was in the stands to watch Southampton defeat League One Sheffield Wednesday on penalties in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, was under contract with Luton through until 2027.

As a result, Southampton have come to a compensation agreement that Luton have described as ‘acceptable’, believed to be an initial £3million. 

Losing Jones is a real blow for Luton as they again look well-placed to push for the Championship play-offs this season. He leaves them ninth in the table after 20 matches. The UFABET report
