Martin Hunter has followed Les Reed in leaving Saints.

Hunter joined Southampton two months after Reed in July 2010 as the under-21 head coach and has since held a variety of roles in his eight-year tenure.

At the time of his departure, Hunter was the Technical Director of Saints and oversaw the development of the under-23 side, which is managed by Radhi Jaidi.

However, there have been criticisms directed towards the club over a lack of young players coming through into the first team.

And Hunter is the latest casualty in a dramatic reshuffle that has seen Reed part company with Saints.
