Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers a target of Southampton

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino on the touch line during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Southampton at St. James Park

It is added that former Hull and Watford boss Silva "is not understood to be in consideration" for the post, while ex-West Ham manager Slaven Bilic "is not prominent on the immediate shortlist".

The Saints have won just one of their past 17 league matches and lost 3-0 at Newcastle United on Saturday.

Like Hughes, Silva was sacked by a Premier League club in January - in his case Watford - and he has also been linked with a move back home to Portugal to take over at Benfica next season.

North Korea seen 'cautious' in announcing stance over upcoming summits: Seoul
The story so far: President Donald Trump accepted North Korea's invitation for direct talks with Kim Jong Un , to be held by May. North Korean media have reported the South Korean visit, but no details of the talks.

The Frenchman had guided the Saints to the league cup final (their first appearance in a final for 14 years) and eighth place in the Premier League, not a bad balance sheet after one season in charge.

The 54-year-old has managed Stoke, QPR, Fulham, Man City and Blackburn without ever being relegated from the top-flight, although it's fair to say that after the sleep-inducing football under Claude Puel and Pellegrino, Hughes doesn't represent the most inspiring of appointments.

"There are all sorts of managers mentioned; Mark Hughes has a lot of Premier League experience and I think that will count in his favour".

Tease wins Crufts amid protest at the NEC
Crufts blamed the incident on animal rights group PETA and accused the man of putting the competitors' safety at risk. Ms Short had just proudly stepped up to the podium with her Best In Show victor when the commotion unfolded.

Given that the Saints only have eight league games to go then club legend, and caretaker, Kelvin Davis could well be an option until the end of the season.

"With a three-week gap before the next Premier League game, they realised this was their last chance to make a change as it did not seem they were going to get themselves out of danger as nothing was changing on the pitch".

If Southampton are prepared to wait until the summer in their search for a new long-term manager they would no doubt boost their chances of luring over a boss who is now in employment.

Theis had an MRI exam on his left knee on Monday morning, determining the need for surgery. He's averaging 10.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game for the C's this season.

Former Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is reportedly the leading candidate to replace the sacked Mauricio Pellegrino as Southampton manager.
