I have it on good authority that Jay Rod and Scott Dann will be Saints players by the end of next week. There is also a strong possibility Tom Ince will be joining and then Nigel will turn his attentions back to Matt Jarvis and a new goalkeeper.

Southampton mean business and a top half finish is the ambition for our first season back before making a sustained effort to gain european qualification!

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Hope your right but think a keeper may be our 1st official signing. Don't believe we would have released 2 keepers without at least 1 replacement virtually guaranteed. That said, i suppose we did play alot of games last season without a keeper on the subs bench!

Blackpool are currently considering an offer of £4m for Tom Ince from West Ham. The Seasiders are reluctant to accept the bid but if they did it would pave the way for numerous signngs.

Dos Santos interested in the move due style of play and he is versatile in the way he can play in the ST,LW,RW or CAM role in the Swansea formation.

Gylfi Sigurdsson medical Friday (unless Rodgers goes Gylfi will be put off the deal, Rodgers is the main factor in bringing him here)

Guidetti signing on loan is possible, Gunter not a target.
Matt Phillips could be an option in a swap with Dobbie plus cash.

Championship bash? You mean like virtually every single member of the existing squad. Rodrigues is young, talented and great attitude. A perfect fit for Saints long term strategy, unlike Owen, Defoe, Holt etc who may still have something to offer but for how long?

What sort of a 'fan' doesn't renew their season card because of a player they've signed

Renewing your season ticket at fratton park will be pretty hard anyway seeing as it won't exist

All Burnley fans on here really need to be quiet, do you not remember last summer saying how Cork and Fox wouldn't leave you as they loved Burnley so much, if i'm not mistaken they spent the season playing at a decent club and a club that had a chance of promotion. Just like these, Rodriguez will sign for Southampton as he won't turn down the opportunity to play in the premier. Oh and last season he wasn't loyal to Burnley, a bid was accepted and we ran out of time plus his wages were a problem, not his loyalty, he wanted to leave lol

Believable4 Unbelievable0

I know this is the banter page but that's also really arrogant. Very pleased to hear the bid has been accepted but you will look a right prat if he doesn't sign. 5Live keeps saying Cardiff are interested as well lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

And of course he would sign for a smaller club in the championship silly

Agree0 Disagree0

Well tbh saints fans can say this everyone is like saying we are going back down when really with the likes of Jay Rodriguez, Tom Ince and Michu Joining our team we will have a really good team better than alot of team actually then its just our defense that needs to be made better with Fonte and Fox at CB we just need two player that would be able to cover them if needed :D so this would really be a good team if and only if the rumours are true about Yakubu then this will be a nice team
GK: Kelvin Davies
CB: Fox
CB: Fonte
CAM: Michu
LW: Adam Lallana
RW: Tom Ince
St: Yakubu
St: Jay Rodriguez
idk about LB or RB depends if we buy them :L

Agree0 Disagree0

If, say, Arsenal made a bid for Adam would you be quiet? The peeps who glibly say we are going back down are just ignorant or jealous skates. Rise above them 'cos your right about our squad and the improvements to come. Btw, is Lambert starting on the bench next season?

If the investment at Leeds United comes to fruition they will become one of the favourite front runners for automatic promotion next season, they will gather the kind of squad that most other championship teams can only dream about, by january next year most of you will be looking up the table at Leeds United and wishing that you had not made those silly little comments about Leeds only being a small club now, well watch this small club leave you in there wake. It's only a matter of time before someone either invests or buys the club anyway even if this offer does not go through.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yakubu is not the sort of player saints would sign anyway, old and lazy

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes a good player and would do well at saints and has been in talks with nigel adkins today :L so i think he is but the only strikers we are going for at this moment are Gary Hooper, Jay Rodriguez who just needs to be finalized and yakubu, other than that we are going for Tom Ince who plays on RW! and Michu who is a CAM. if we got these three we would have a pacey midfield which is needed in the premier league also Yakubu would be a good for Jay Rodriguez as he has had premier league experience so that probably why Nigel Adkins wants him

Not a rumour as such, but it is big news for anybody in the Championship if Leeds do get new owners.

The club have an enormous income and are able to pay top wages and transfer fees in the division, and its only through having Ken Bates as Chairman that they haven't hitherto, with Bates instead spending it on vastly expensive redevelopment projects instead, with the club still returning a profit.

New owners may see things differently, and if they do, expect Leeds to be a serious force to be reckoned with next year.

It is being said that ex Aberdeen frontman Darren Mackie is being lined up with a move to Huddersfield town. He is a free agent after leaving the Pittodrie club of many years. Good bit of business if u ask me he isnt the most prolific striker but pops up with the odd goal but his work rate is 2nd to none and whoever was partnered with him will score plenty because of his workrate.

partnership, and then a free roll for one of
danny ward or kallum higginbothom. The
strike partnership will depend on whether
jordan rhodes stays or goes. Contrary to
popular belief no bid has EVER been made for Jordan,

Is Jay Rod really 7 million pound better than Mcleary who just signed for reading?

Both young, promising attackers shining at their respective championship clubs.

McCleary is more if a winger and J-Rod is several years younger.
£7million seems a bit steep, but I bet if McCleary was still under contract he would have cost a few million

To every fan out there that thinks fletcher n Jarvis are not worth 10mill each fletcher has hit double figures in the last 3 seasons for wolves n burnley Torres only scored 34 n went for 50 mill bent went for 24 n Carroll went for 35 we signed fletch for 7 mill so I think if they went for that fletch is a bargain at 12 mill pluse he's got 3 years left so we can ask for what we want

Jarvis scored 8 goals from the wing in a rubbish team this season with numerous assist n the 1st 2 seasons was one of the best left wingers in the country if downing went for 20 Jarvis is better so that's a bargain at 10 mill n he's also got 3 years left we don't need to sell we're in the black

Bit of Stoke news


Cuvelier has put pen to paper on a new deal as reported but a few will leave

As reported, Peter Coates has asked for the dead wood to be removed to make way for new players. There will be up to 6 players leaving in the coming weeks, the only first teamers could be Thomas Sorensen, Kenwyne Jones and Robert Huth who despite Spurs being poised to sign the lad from Ajax are favourites to land the German .

Stoke are chasing 3 strikers- one is a very well known name and also Lukaku has been well documented on loan- a deal that was blocked in January as was the former player

Jake Kean is a player that Stoke are interested in taking from Blackburn as understudy to Begovic

Matt Jarvis and Matt Phillips have been well documented as has Olsson.

Two players currently playing in Spain are on Stoke's want list

As well as the well known striker, a midfielder from a top 4 club is in advanced stages.

I got 50 odd doubters on here when I said Crouch was signing and Palacios also. 3 days later they happened :-)
