Southampton executive chairman Nicola Cortese has resigned from his post at the club.

The club made the announcement on their official Twitter feed, adding that a search has begun for a new chief executive officer.

Club owner Katharina Liebherr, who in a reshuffle becomes non-executive chairman, said: "With great regret we have accepted the resignation of Mr Cortese.

"He has done a wonderful job and we very much wanted him to stay. A search has now begun for a successor.

"It is business as usual and we will ensure that the manager, team and staff at the club have all the help and support they need."
