Former River Plate coach Gallardo under consideration at Southampton

Former River Plate coach Marcelo Gallardo is under consideration at Southampton.

Saints have been granted permission by Luton Town to hold talks with their manager Nathan Jones.

However, Gallardo is also under consideration, says the Guardian.

Gallardo has recently left his position at River Plate and is preparing for a move to Europe.

Saints are seeking a new manager after sacking Ralph Hasenhuttl on Monday.
