Payne to return from Eastleigh loan


Youngster Lewis Payne will return to Southampton following a loan spell at National League side, Eastleigh.

The right-back moved to Saints' non-league neighbours on transfer deadline day in January for his first experience of senior football, and made his Spitfires debut that same night against Barnet.

Payne will now return to Staplewood Campus to link back up with the club's B team, where he has made 17 appearances and scored two goals so far this season.
