Nigel Adkins's career at Southampton reportedly comes to an end after the Premier League club cut their ties with the manager.

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has reportedly been sacked by the club following an inconsistent term in the Premier League.

The South Coast outfit lingered in the bottom three of the table in the first few months of the season but they have since climbed up from the relegation zone, three points clear of the drop following a 2-2 draw with Chelsea this week.
