Sunshine, BBQs and silly season – it must be the summer.

With the summer transfer window open for business, Saints are starting to get their plans in order for the new season under Mark Hughes.

Though in a World Cup year business is normally conducted late, with the transfer window slamming shut before the start of the season there is more urgency than usual.

Saints have until August 9 to get all their business done, and the Daily Echo will help fans keep tabs on who the club has been linked to.

Below we'll list all the rumours about who could be joining and leaving St Mary's this summer.

New rumours will be added to the top of each list. If you come across a rumour that is not listed here, email it to echosport@dailyecho.co.uk
