Premier League survival will guarantee Southampton a stunning £60 million cash boost.

The Daily Echo says Saints are set to land a massive £60m windfall if Mauricio Pochettino completes the job of leading them to safety this season.

With a new TV deal set to kick in for the Premier League next season, and bumper revenues for overseas broadcasting rights also having been agreed, Saints could be on the verge of a bagging a fortune if they retain their top flight status.

The League’s success in ensuring a domestic TV deal worth more than £3bn – and huge overseas right sales expected to take the final total well beyond £5bn – means clubs in the top flight will become richer and richer.
