Southampton manager Nigel Adkins will reportedly remain at the club following talks with the club's chief executive Nicola Cortese.

Southampton have reportedly decided against calling time on manager Nigel Adkins's career following discussions over his future.

The Liverpool-born coach has been under increasing pressure following the Saints' disappointing start to the season, which has placed them at the bottom of the Premier League table.

It is understood that Adkins held talks with executive chairman Nicola Cortese, who is believed to have expressed his support to the manager, according to the Daily Echo.

Reports have claimed that Adkins will be in charge of Southampton's league clash against Swansea City this weekend.
