Davies in Saints switch link
Nigel Adkins is poised to take Everton's academy goalkeeper Adam Davies to Southampton in this transfer window.
The Saints boss has been looking for a new goalkeeper to compete with first-choice custodian Kelvin Davis ahead of the side's return to the Premier League this season.
And, following links to Birmingham City's highly-rated England international and Great Britain's Olympic shot-stopper Jack Butland, it now seems that Adkins has swooped to bring in another potential star of the future.
Davies has so far spent his career in the Toffees' academy and is an Under-16 international, but the recently turned 20-year-old is set to continue his progress at St Mary's where he will no doubt be flagged up as a possible number one for the club in the coming years.
Adkins will no doubt still be keen to add a more experienced goalkeeper to his ranks between now and the close of the transfer window.
