SAINTS netted over £150 million in funds from selling players this summer, vital funds following the club's relegation from the Premier League.

That money helped the club rebuild the squad for their aimed return to the Premier League while also helping to elevate the financial struggles of playing in the Championship.

Here's a look at how every player Saints sold this summer has done so far this season...

James Ward-Prowse

After 20 years at the club, James Ward-Prowse departed St Mary's in August, joining Premier League side West Ham.

A Southampton academy graduate, Ward-Prowse has taken to life at West Ham as though he had spent the past two decades in claret and blue rather than red and white.

He has registered two goals and nine assists across the league and Europa League in his first 16 games for David Moyes' side.

Despite his lighting quick start to life at the London Stadium, the 29 year old remains out of Gareth Southgate's England plans.

Romeo Lavia

A drawn-out transfer saga saw Liverpool and Chelsea compete for Romeo Lavia's signature ahead of the 2023-24 Premier League season.

The young Belgian opted to join the Blues, linking up with former Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino in the process.

Since arriving at Stamford Bridge for around £58 million, Lavia has had to nurse an ankle injury which has prevented him from making his debut before suffering a further injury setback on his road to recovery.

Tino Livramento

Much like Lavia has required patience in his early Chelsea career, Tino Livramento has had to wait for opportunities at Newcastle.

The 21 year old only played 46 minutes across Newcastle's first 10 league games as Kieran Trippier has continued to shine at right back.

However, in recent weeks, his game time has increased - somewhat due to Newcastle's injury crisis.

Livramento was named man of the match during their win over Manchester City, which was his first start for the club.

He also received plaudits for his performance against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Nathan Tella

The sale of Nathan Tella was somewhat of a bitter pill to swallow for Southampton supporters.

He had already made a fantastic start to the Championship campaign following an equally impressive loan at Burnley, where he helped the Clarets bounce back to the Premier League.

But when German giants Bayer Leverkusen came calling, very few expected the latest addition to the Nigerian national team to turn down that opportunity.

Tella's new club are flying under boss Xabi Alonso. Die Werkself sit top of the Bundesliga with 10 wins and one draw from 11 games.

Tella is still yet to establish himself as a key player in Alonso's team, only playing 54 minutes in the league so far, but he did score his first Bundesliga goal on Sunday.

It's in the Europa League that the 24 year old has played most of his minutes (281), also scoring in their win over Molde FK.

Mislav Orsic

Mislav Orsic's time at Saints didn't last long. A £5 million pound transfer from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb in January returned 6 minutes of Premier League action.

A few months on from his ill-fated transfer, Orsic was sold to Trabzonspor, with Saints said to receive up to £3.5 million for his release.

The Croatian's fortunes didn't improve in Turkey as he suffered a serious knee injury soon after joining the club and is yet to make his debut.Daily Echo: Mislav Orsic played only six Premier League minutes for Southampton following a January move

Mohammed Salisu

Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu joined AS Monaco on a permanent transfer this summer for a fee of around £20 million.

The 24 year old departed St Mary’s after three years with the club turning a significant profit on his initial transfer fee from Real Valladolid.

Since switching to the Ligue 1 outfit, Salisu is yet to make his debut as a lingering injury has prevented him from turning out in his new club's colours.

Moussa Djenepo

Moussa Djenepo's exit from Saints came following the closure of the English transfer window.

Luckily for the Malian international, who didn't appear to be a part of Russell Martin's plans this season, his former side Standard Liege were still permitted to make transfers.

The 25 year old has made eight appearances since rejoining his old side, who sit mid-table in the Pro League.

Ibrahima Diallo

Midfielder Ibrahima Diallo was the second player to exit Saints this summer, behind Orsic. He joined Qatari side Al Duhail who play in the same league as his brother Abdou Diallo.

Since leaving for the Middle East, Diallo has only made three league appearances. However, he has managed to score twice and assist once during his trio of appearances.
