Southampton given permission to talk to Scunthorpe's Nigel Adkins
Press Association - 6 years ago

Scunthorpe United have given their manager, Nigel Adkins, permission to speak to Southampton about the vacant managerial post at St Mary's.

Adkins, 45, who has steered Scunthorpe to two promotions in four years on a meagre budget, has emerged as the man Southampton want to replace Alan Pardew, who was sacked last month. Andy Crosby, Adkins' assistant manager, is expected to follow him to the south coast, but the two clubs have yet to agree a compensation package.

"The club has given permission for manager Nigel Adkins to speak to Southampton," read a club statement. "Nigel and his assistant Andy Crosby have agreed terms with the Saints but the club have yet to agree a compensation package with the League One side.

"The club will update fans as and when there's more information."
