Southampton Football Club can confirm that Academy duo Jake Vokins and Will Merry have joined Eastleigh on loan for the rest of the season.

The pair will link up with former Saints hero Kelvin Davis, who is now in charge of non-league neighbours Eastleigh in the Vanarama National League.

Vokins has prior experience in the fifth tier, having spent time on loan with Woking last season where he made 15 appearances before returning to Saints.

For 18-year-old Merry, however, this will be the first senior loan move of his career after another positive season featuring for the Under-21s as well as the Under-18s.

The club wishes Jake and Will all the best for the run-in and will monitor their progress for the rest of the campaign.
