Press Association reporter Simon Peach usually knows the ins and outs at Southampton and as you can see from the Tweet below, there are set to be two more high-profile departures from St Mary’s.
Over the last 48 hours of so, it has become clear that Arsenal will sign Calum Chambers – yet another rising star from the Southampton youth system.
The 19-year-old right back will reportedly cost Arsenal 11 million pounds and joins the huge exodus from the club started by coach Mauricio Pochettino leaving.
Chambers he will fight Mathieu Debuchy for the right back slot with Bacary Sagna having departed and Carl Jenkinson set for a loan spell to another Premier League side.
Chambers has played just 18 times for Southampton but is seen as an enormous prospect that Arsene Wenger has been following for some time.
