DEJAN Lovren today returned to Saints - a week after admitting he had set his heart on a move to Liverpool.

Boss Ronald Koeman said at his press conference on Friday that he expected the wantaway Croatian centre half to report back at the club today.

Lovren has promptly done as requested and was part of the Saints party that left for a short pre season tour to Belgium today.

Lovren handed in a transfer request prior to the World Cup starting, but Koeman insisted last Friday that he did not want to sell any more players.
