Nigel Adkins says that he expects Southampton to be "very active" during the final week of the transfer window.

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins expects the club to be "very active" during the final week of the transfer window.

The Saints have already added Jay Rodriguez, Nathaniel Clyne and opening-day scorer Steven Davis to their squad this summer.

However, with next Friday's 11.00pm deadline fast approaching, Adkins is keen to bring more new faces to St Mary's, with a particular focus on strengthening his defensive options.

"I'd like to think we are going to be very active in the window because I know how hard people working behind the scenes here at Southampton," said Adkins.

"We want to improve and it is fair to say that now the transfer window is coming a bit of closer [to ending], more decisions are made.

"I have gone public saying we need to bring in another centre-half, if not two, so we'll see what the week brings."

The South Coast club have been linked with moves for Bologna winger Gaston Ramirez and Blackpool star Matt Phillips.
