Saints chief will 'welcome' new blood

Mauricio Pochettino claims he is happy with the strength of his Southampton squad but he will 'welcome new signings' in the summer.

The Argentinian tactician has impressed since taking over at St Mary's from Nigel Adkins in mid-January as the side are now virtually guaranteed another season in the Premier League.

And, when quizzed about his plans to bolster his ranks when the summer transfer window opens for business, Pochettino revealed his current crop of players are of a high standard, but that will not stop him strengthening with new blood if the opportunity arises.

"I think there is already a good level of quality of footballers in my squad," he told the Daily Echo.

"But we are open as a club to try and reinforce in the positions we feel we need to improve - logically if we have the chance to improve then of course we will go for those players and I'm sure that my squad and the club itself would welcome new signings."
