Jesse Marsch is set to replace Nathan Jones at Southampton

Jesse Marsch is set to replace Nathan Jones as Southampton’s new manager.

Marsch and Southampton held a first round of talks on Monday to discuss the length of his potential contract.

The club felt it was crucial to act quickly and decisively in their quest and want a new manager in place ahead of their next game against Chelsea on February 18.

Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have also been considered by the club hierarchy but Marsch now looks set to take over at St Mary’s with the club currently bottom of the Premier League.

A final decision is expected shortly. Marsch is the front-runner, but several options are being explored.

the athlete previously reported that Marsch was being considered for the Southampton vacancy.

The South Coast’s interest in Marsch dates back to Sport Republic’s January 2022 arrival.

Southampton have followed Marsch since his days with the New York Red Bulls. His experience of working in the Red Bull system, like former manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, appeals to Southampton as there are certain similarities in terms of pressing style and system.

Marsch has remained in England since his release from Leeds.

Southampton have been looking for a new manager since Sunday, with Nathan Jones being sacked after just 14 games in charge.

Jones led the club to just one top-flight win during his short tenure at St Mary’s.
