Southampton close to making Hughes appointment

Southampton are expected to appoint Mark Hughes as their new manager.

The Southampton Daily Echo claims Hughes will replace Mauricio Pellegrino, who was sacked on Tuesday.

Pellegrino was hired in the summer, but his run of 17 games without a win was enough for ownership to decide it was time for a change.

Hughes was sacked by Stoke City in January after spending four-and-a-half years at the club.

The Welshman spent two years as a Saints player in the twilight years of his decorated career.
