Cape Town - Southampton have managed to restore some order at the club after several players departed very early in the transfer window.

After guiding the team to a very respectable eighth spot last season, the club lost manager Mauricio Pochettino who left to take the top job at Spurs and shortly thereafter several key players followed the manager out of the club. Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Calum Chambers all departed in the summer leaving many to wonder if Southampton would be in the English Premiership in a year's time.

New manager Ronald Koeman has done fantastically well in the transfer market by restoring some balance to the side while also managing to keep hold of key midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and injured striker Jay Rodriguez.  

Southampton are now in eighth spot again, after their opening three games, and fans at St Mary's will be hoping that the side can push on to even greater heights.

Here is a list of all the "Ins" and "Outs' at Southampton:

Outs - £97.6 million:

Rickie Lambert - £4m
