Saints are already due to face La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao at home on August 7 but they have now arranged to take on Espanyol next Wednesday in an additional game.

New boss Claude Puel takes charge of his first Premier League game on August 13, at home to Watford, but the Espanyol clash will act as an early warm-up.

Saints are currently on a three-match tour of the Netherlands as they prepare for the new campaign, and they won 4-0 at Zwolle on Saturday before upcoming games against Twente and Groningen.
