Skysports.com understands Southampton are set to win the race for Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork.

Cork has been resigned to leaving Chelsea as he is well down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

A host of Championship clubs have been chasing the highly-rated England Under 21 international this summer.

Cork, who spent last season on loan at Burnley, has attracted interest from the likes of the Clarets, Nottingham Forest and Blackpool, but Southampton are closing on the 21-year-old's signature.

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins is a big admirer of the versatile performer and sees him as a key addition as he plans for next season back in the Championship.

Cork enjoyed a loan spell at Southampton during the 2008/09 season and he is expected to seal a return to St Mary's before the end of the week.
