Southampton manager Rubén Sellés has confirmed forward Ché Adams will return to the side ahead of the visit of Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Adams hasn't been part of the Premier League matchday squad since the defeat to Wolves at the start of February, a repeated injury keeping him out of the clashes with Chelsea and Leeds.

But the 26-year-old will provide Sellés with another welcome option this weekend.

"We have Ché Adams back," confirmed the manager, "he will be bought in for tomorrow and we have no more issues other than Tino Livramento.

"Mohammed Salisu is fit but he had some problems ahead of the last two games, which put him aside. We don't need someone at 80 or 90 per cent, we need everyone at 100 per cent."

The manager also provided an update on the fitness level of Juan Larios, who continues his recovery from a long-term injury.

"Juan Larios is coming back and he will have some minutes with the B team to test himself."
