SAINTS are in talks to re-sign Theo Walcott, according to reports.

The winger, 31, is said to be interesting a host of clubs on a loan deal from Everton.

Walcott left Saints as a teenager in 2006 to join Arsenal, having played 23 times for the Hampshire club, scoring five goals.

But now according to various outlets including Sky Sports and talkSPORT, Saints are in talks to sign him again before tonight's 11pm deadline.

Former England international Walcott joined the Toffees from Arsenal in 2018, but has featured just once in the Premier League so far this season for Carlo Ancelotti's table-toppers.
