Record signing Gaston Ramirez returns for Southampton ahead of West Brom match


Southampton could welcome back record signing Gaston Ramirez for Monday night's Barclays Premier League clash with West Brom.

The 21-year-old Uruguayan has been missing for five weeks following a thigh problem, but Saints boss Nigel Adkins confirmed he has trained well this week.

Defender Frazer Richardson (groin) and midfielder Jack Cork (knee) remain sidelined, but Tadanari Lee featured in the 3-0 Capital One Cup defeat to Leeds following his elbow injury and could make his league return.

Provisional squad: K Davis, Gazzaniga, Boruc, Butterfield, Stephens, Clyne, Fox, Shaw, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Fonte, Seaborne, Ward-Prowse, Do Prado, Chaplow, De Ridder, Lallana, Ramirez, Schneiderlin, Lee, Puncheon, S Davis, Lambert, Rodriguez, Mayuka.
