Aaron Martin: Southampton open to offers for defender

Martin is well down the pecking order at St Mary's and Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be open to letting him move on.

The 23-year-old joined Southampton from non-league Eastleigh in 2009 and he has made 22 appearances for the first-team.

Martin found himself out of favour at Southampton in 2012/13 and spent last term out on loan at Crystal Palace and Coventry City.

Coventry are keen to re-sign Martin after the defender impressed during his time at the Ricoh Arena - making 12 appearances for the Sky Blues.

However, any move is being held up by Coventry's transfer embargo, with Steven Pressley making Martin one of his top targets this summer.
