Southampton are still scouting the three young Italians.
But added to that list they have been scouting three old boys. Rumours have it - it's Martin Craine, Andrew Surman and Dexter Blackstock.
They also seem to be gearing up to make further bids on Gary Hooper and Jay Rodriguez.
There is also a Unnamed CB they are scouting as well.
This is all being prepared in readiness for making it into the Premier League.(10)(12)Who is the 3 young italiansWhilst the Hooper interest can be anticipated I believe the other interests are very wide of the mark.
I would have thought recent history would have shown that signings by Saints will be kept behind closed doors until the deals are done, so most rumours will be pure speculation.
Suggest we just trust the management to land the right type of players-they have been pretty successful so far, but most of the signings have been a complete surprise to the fans (apart from Sharpe who was expected to sign for all clubs in the Championship before the close of the window) and I expect it will stay that way.Hoopers going no where so forget that 1...he will be playing champions league footy next season so fighting relagationIn your dreams surman is happy were he is. If he leaves norwich it wont be to southampton.If your going to post playground rumours, please make them original. No more to add to the 2nd reply.Hooper is out of conract in the summer, but will go bigger.Martin Craine maybe.Surman is happy at Norwich as is Blackstock.Jay Rodriguez in your dreams.Who the unnamed Centre Back.This was so stupid of a post if you want to post at least make it believeable.I dont think Surman would leave Norwich i agree, but Southampton have probably the best chance of getting him if he did, he enjoyed his time here and didnt want to leave but had to. Get your facts right, norwich fans are unbelievable.

As to the others, i think most are untrue. Blackstock is no where near what we need, if we get another ST, which seems unlikely, it would be someone that is sitting around lower prem, or a young gun. CB is likely, as is some young players. Would be interested to hear who they were? Is this coming from the same source that said Mattia Destro would come to England? (I wish lol )Further to the original statement a rumour has started that if Saints make it back to the Premier League, they will make two audacious key signings before the start of next season. the players involved are former Saints players. Watch this space.Heard this too,Paine and Channon maybe?Just to throw in a few observations, Southampton did at one time have to sell stars of the future because of their finacial situation. That's all changed now and some of those stars would jump at the opertunity to return to the club that started them of in their careers. So the players named list above isn't that unbelievable. If Southampton could get back the likes of Bale, Walcott and Oxlade the premier league would be over before it started. So just think what might happen for the time being.Must be Bale and Oxlade Chamberlin then!


22 Mar 2012 16:31:13
Bristol are close to signing Hogan Ephraim from QPR on loan(11)(3)Were called bristol city,


22 Mar 2012 16:29:00

Are you serious? He couldn't pass wind! Apart form one good goal against Pompey he was cack.Can we have him back at hereford


22 Mar 2012 16:18:22
John Bostock of Tottenham going on loan to Swindon until the end of the season!! This man has loads of potential....great signing for the Reds if it comes off!!(13)(2)Potential that he has totally wasted so far?
He was meant to be the next big thing when he joined Spurs, but now he is spending time in League Two?!Not being funny but he couldn't cut in league 1 with SWFCHe had potential when he was 15 and broke into the palace squad. then he sat in the reserves for 2 seasons, went down to league on and was uninspirational had a decent run in the championship. the guy ruined his career for a quick buck and as a palace fan I'm glad he has amounted to nothing


22 Mar 2012 13:31:03
Marlon Pack said to be at the C G today in talks over a possible loan then permanent deal with Mehdi Kerrouche going to Cheltenham plus cash in exchange(5)(8)He was rubbish on loan at wednesday probs be same 4 ur lot his attitude is a problem also

22 Mar 2012 12:17:09
Sam Allardyce has been told by G&S that he has 5 games to save his WHU career because past results are simply not good enough. WHU Board have already started sounding out a
replacement for end this and beginning
for next season with Paolo Di Canio
on the short list(23)(21)HAHA! nice try, Big Sam has the backing of the board. ANd PDC WILL manage West Ham one day...but not yet...He is learning and will take swindon up this season and will challenge for a promotion again next year. Everything is in place for Swindon Town to become established in the Championship, then...when the job is available...he will return 'home' to West Ham.Big Sam is a EPL Manager.
West Ham are just not good enough!
That is the true story. {Ed001's Note - West Ham have the best squad in the Championship, the problem is that they are football players, not hoof it long and kick anything that moves merchants. Allardyce needs 11 big brutal lumps to make his 'style' of play work. What says it all to me is that his proudest achievement at Bolton was working on Kevin Davies so he could jump an inch or two higher to get the ball when it was hoofed up to him.}Thats a shame, (to the reply). Big Sam is a joke, no idea of what football is, and has got the team acting like they are all taking penalty kicks in rugby. Poor form, poor tactics, great team. So obviously the link that is weak is that fatty in charge


22 Mar 2012 10:24:16
Redknapp - England manager
Modric - Man U
Adebayor - Will depart as unaffordable
Bassong - to depart permanently(14)(25)If modric goes and its a very big if? It will depend on who the next manager is? levy will not sell to manchester united or any other english team unless they go way above the £42 million chelsea were offering!I don't think Redknapp will manage England full time but I can't the 3 players leaving at the start of next season. What you reckon of Suarez jumping boat?I don't think currently United have the kind of money it would take to get Modric to afford on one player even if Levy was prepared to sell. If Spurs do miss out on CL Modric could well agitate for a move but very few clubs could afford the kind of price Levy would demand and United with their huge debts to be financed don't appear to be one


22 Mar 2012 10:24:05
walsall to offer a contract to a wilbraham of norwich as he is out of contract in summer(7)(8)


22 Mar 2012 10:18:27
Leicester city to bid for Sak Whitbread, back for needs strengthening and he has the Quality that Pearson wants. Expect bamba to leave with tunchev. Bamba is a suprise but Pearson doesn't like his take on the world attitude, he is a class defender though! Bad move!(3)(16)Not sak you wally its zak.I know I miss/typed! Lol!Lambert's favourite CB? good luck mate.


22 Mar 2012 09:32:54
A rumour is going round that Steve Fletcher might be going to Plymouth on loan.(15)(13)He has been sidelined for some time not even appearing on the bench. With his playing career unlikely to go beyond next season he needs to be involved and even substitute appearances at Plymouth would be better than nothing. Ridiculous that Bournemouth are not using his experience!Guys, he means Steve Fletcher of Bournemouth not WolvesRound and round in your head.


22 Mar 2012 09:26:53
The Times are rumoured to be reporting tomorrow morning that robinho is on his way for a loan deal!! Thoughts?(2)(10)On his way where?

22 Mar 2012 07:45:41
liverpool won't sign any world beaters were destined for europa league football this year by no means is this season a failure a cup maybe 2 fingers crossed and weve guranteed a shot at the europa league and we should let the youngsters blossom i.e sterling suso and so on its gave martin kelly the drive and game time to break the first team anyway onto signings junior hoillett who can play as a right or left winger and possibly a centre back to toughen up the back 4 they'll be a lot of players leaving fabio aurelio ,doni ,joe cole and aqualani and just youngsters who won't make the grade at htis club(9)(13)Liverpool have spent 113m to win the carling cup this season but are still way off the pace for a top 4 place which was proven with last nights result at QPR. The club will not go forward with Dalglish throwing excessive money at very average players eg Carroll,Henderson,Adam,Downing.Every transfer people list all these players supposedly leaving Liverpool - you need someone to buy them!

You can't just decide you don't like players and ditch them - there has to be another club willing to pay a transfer fee and a salary for these players!Not a failure, miles off the pace paid stupid money for average players!
100m to win league cup is not a good investment.


22 Mar 2012 05:53:55
Norwich City will be looking to South Korea in the summer transfer window as they aim to sign
FC Seoul and Montenegerin International Striker
Dejan Damjanovic as they have been impressed from what they have seen of the forward
reports suggest the player is desperate to leave the club in the summer

Earlier in the year FC Seoul rejected a £5m bid from Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande for the player(3)(12)


21 Mar 2012 22:17:11
Cherries linked with former midfielder Anton Robinson after being rumoured to be unsettled at the Galpharm.(7)(5)Take him he's absolutely stE!He isnt that good!

21 Mar 2012 22:12:49
Bournemouth have also expressed an interest in Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee after pressure from the Dean Court faithful to sign a new keeper.(1)(6)


21 Mar 2012 22:10:16
Norwich City defender Russell Martin, 26, insists speculation regarding himself, 25 year old Andrew Surman, Anthony Pilkington, 23 and captain Grant Holt, 30, will not result in a mass exodus at Carrow Road.(5)(10)Unlikely seeing all have long term contracts and will not move unless unrealistic offers and interest in them will not be forthcoming since all dropped off in form. Rangers bid of £500k for Grant H before they went bust was laughable £2m for the 30 year old might just interest.Yer it will£2m very funny£2,000 000 for Club and Team Captain who has scored double figures in his first season in the EPL. Okaaay


21 Mar 2012 22:09:39
nuri sahin to manchester united.
Quality player only started one game

Miles Addison set to sign perminately for the Cherries after a successful loan spell.(8)(5)


21 Mar 2012 20:36:15
billy sharp to joint ipswich on loan(6)(26)Why would he do that? No benefit to him or Saints, only to Ipswich. He is in the Saints 16 for every recent match and a loan move would bring the chance of injury with no benefit whatsoever.
Rubbish rumour.Where the hell did you dig this one up from, if Billy went anywhere it would probably be back to Donny, although he like's Ipswich he wont come here as he's proved when he was approached in the transfer windowDon't be stupid...with Connolly injured (frequently i may add), Barnard not getting a berth, and with Tadanari nursing an ankle really think we would give away a £2mil signing that is still looking to make an impression. Its been a tough year for Billy, and im sure wherever he went it would take a while to settle in, especally with a team that is high flying. Either way, don't see him leaving when he's close to first starting 11This rumour may have been accurate back in the summer when we went in for him but its long dead now he's at saints


21 Mar 2012 20:43:32

Dougie Freedman is chasing out of contract ex-Chelsea midfielder Jacob Mellis.(16)(5)He's training with BurnleyNot out of contract, it was terminatedSurely if he no longer has a contract with chelsea weather its expired or been terminated he is still out of contract? Being a bit pedantic I think


21 Mar 2012 07:55:26

Norwich City are hot on the heels of newly available free agent Jacob Mellis after the players contract was terminated by chelsea(10)(24)


20 Mar 2012 22:50:03
Jon Douglas to swindon on loan until the end of the season(2)(11)Total rubbish we wouldnt have him back and dont want him back as he was part of the team that got us relegated and couldnt give a toss about the club and under Paolo he wouldnt cope with his training regime. He's better off where he is at Brentford as they wont be going anywhere whereas we are on the rise with Paolo at the helm.Not wanted..not needed. We are a club on the up, He does not have the passion or the desire to survive at Swindon under the superb guidance of PDC. The players coming in now are ones that will help the club challenge for promotion from Division One next season i.e Holmes and Cleverley are both quality players who are out of contract in the Summer, PDC will see how they perform until the end of the season then take them on free's for the new campaign if they show the quality we know they possess. People like Jon Douglas can stay at Brentford thank you very much!!


20 Mar 2012 22:09:11

Bournemouth and barnsley interested in sheffield wednesday striker chris o'grady(15)(11)


20 Mar 2012 15:34:09
Liverpool will make David ''Junior'' Hoilett their first summer signing, the 21-year old Canadian will be a free agent this summer however Liverpool will have to pay Blackburn a compensation fee.(31)(26)No they won't, he wants to go to london!!He has bigger ambition than playing for Liverpool .Doubt it......even he will want to play champions league next season considering the form he is in top clubs will be after him. You'll never win all...Must have imagined that cup final a few weeks ago


20 Mar 2012 14:36:06
Charlton to make a double loan raid on b
Spurs for Adam Smith and John Bostock(5)(24)Smith has been on loan and was called back as cover for walker


20 Mar 2012 13:14:25
wolves are looking to sign Jacob Butterfield for free at the end of the season when his contract is up.(6)(40)They cannot sign him for free even though
his contract is up .He his under 24 and if the
clubs cannot agree a fee it goes to a tribunalWhy would he sign for a club with no ambition, not that he is any good.


20 Mar 2012 10:51:35
sotons david connelly and colchesters steven gillespie sign before thursdays deadline {Ed025's Note - for who?..(1)(7)Why would Connelly move when he is very much involved in a promotion push, but is unavailable through injury at the moment?
Try and speak with a little knowledge of what you refer to.Who for burger man


20 Mar 2012 10:37:54
Huddersfield Town looking at Preston midfielder Paul Coutts(21)(1)Not a chance if he leaves he will join a championship club and he.s well overated anyway.


20 Mar 2012 10:21:23
leicester are trying too sign Jamie Vardy for £ 2M And Jordan Rhodes for £5.5M And kasper Schmiechel is set to leave for aston villa £5m(3)(38)I'm a Leicester fan and I can't see it. In my view Pearson pushed the boat out when he bid £1m for a non league striker, can't see the value doubling.
I'm sure Jordan Rhodes will be on his way to a Premier League side in the summer, despite being an optimist and a huge fan of Nigel Pearson that ain't happening this year.
Finally Villa bid £5 million when they are cutting back? They also bought Shay Given last year and put him on a long contract and Kasper is good, but not that good.Kasper Schmeichel is not worth 5 quidVilla who have given,guzan & siegrist? o.OKasper schmeichel is a quality keeper leicester wont let him leave, they dont need the money



20 Mar 2012 10:15:47
Reading have contacted free agent Jacob Mellis after his sacking by Chelsea about a move to the Berkshire club. Reading have tried to organise a deal for him in the last couple of transfer windows and although Mellis had been keen Chelsea did not want to let him go out at the time.(8)(25)Heard a rumour that Mellis has spoken to Saints about joining,he enjoyed his spell down here before and would quite like to link up with Jack Cork again.He was fired as he was the one who set the stink bomb off, wrong attitude for ReadingA smoke bmb is hardly a pub brawl is is it? Reading and most other clubs in the country will be looking at him. Kids...


20 Mar 2012 10:13:53
Something is happening at Wolves. I am hearing big rumours that Morgan is on the verge of bringing in a foreign manager, if not now then at the end of the season, regardless of what division we are in. Im hearing that although no names have been mentioned that this is a Spanish manager/coach and that he is currently working with a club in the top half of La Liga and is there head coach. Please dont shoot the messenger! Im only passing on what i have heard coming out of Molineux.(6)(27)Ive heard its Thomas Tuchel from the BundusligaFantastic - wonder what he'll make of our 'players'Stop making things up.

Steve Bruce will take over in the summer.Something's happening all right,you're going down,what a way to screw up a great football club.Feel so sorry for the Wolves fans,they deserve so much better.Thank you we doKnow what it feels like mate,Saints nearly went thanks to a big-headed red faced buffoon who thought he had all the answers about football when all he really knew about was hockey,duck shooting,
and making money for himself and his cronies.Some of these tassers are shameless,they care nothing for the club or the fans.Good luck.The sooner thick morgan and poxey moxey leave our club the better.


20 Mar 2012 10:07:54
Ronnie Moore is set to pull off a shock loan transfer deal with Dale Jennings set to return on loan from Bayern Munich until the end of the season. Tranmere are sitting just 6 points above the relegation zone and the additional firepower of Jennings should be enough to secure their League One status for another season.(6)(6)Bit sad making fake rumours


20 Mar 2012 10:05:14
Sigurdsson linked with Liverpool.(21)(24)Great wee player, 10x the player Adam is.As a reading fan very please about this, would have been gutted to see him go to Swansea, best player I've ever seen play for reading, obviously that doesn't mean a great deal but sidwell went to Chelsea O.o.....And reading


20 Mar 2012 09:54:52
Kurt Leach set to sign for Bristol City on a season longs loan from non league FC Copenbadly, McInnes could sign the 16 year old on a perminant basis in the summer. It is reported that Boreham Wood are also intrested in the talented young winger.(1)(6)Clever, nice one.......The most shocking thing about this rumour is that it appears that FC Copenbadly are not a joke club! They actually exist! Who'd have thought...


20 Mar 2012 09:31:39
Preston North End are set to sign former Barnsley midfielder Goran Lovre.(10)(4)

Dinamo Zagreb have made a summer bid for Bayern Munich and Croatia striker Ivica Olic.(8)(3)Bid? he'll be able to transfer for free.


20 Mar 2012 09:27:07
Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore has stated he would like to bring in Hull winger Jamie Devitt in the summer on a free transfer if he is to become manager on a full time basis.(4)(4)Why would anyone expect to get him on a free? (his contract doesn't run our until the end of the 2013 season)


20 Mar 2012 09:25:18
Watford are keen on signing West Ham striker Freddie Sears for around £600,000 in the summer.(10)(12)£600,000 ??

No way can we afford that kind of cash. Especially for a relatively unproven player.

Plus, we have strength in depth in the midfield department.If bolton stay up dont watford get an extra million for the sordell sale, possible money there?

bs18Thats a BIG IF!!!


20 Mar 2012 09:24:22
Burnley have made a £750,000 summer bid for Uruguayan midfielder Diego Arismendi from Stoke.(5)(12)


20 Mar 2012 08:38:49
Chelsea are set to speak to German club Mainz about their manager Thomas Tuchel. The 38 year old is wanted by a number of European clubs to be their new boss in the summer after turning the 'small' German side into Bundesliga challengers.(2)(11)Haven't Chelsea just been down this road?Challenging for mid table or europa league


20 Mar 2012 07:10:39
Steve Bruce has turned down the offer of a 12 month rolling contract to become the new manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Steve Morgan wanted him to take charge as from today (Tues) but Bruce feels the club have become a laughing stock and are guarenteed relegation. I believe that Morgan now feels that he has no chouce but to stick with Terry Connor for the remainder of the season. Morgan was talked into the appointment of Conner by CEO Jez Moxey but now realises the club have made a massive error. I am also lead to believe that there is absolutely no truth in the rumour circulating around Wolverhampton that Morgan is looking to get rid of Jez Moxey and then reappoint Mick McCarthy in the summer. It was Morgans decision to part compant with MM and that Moxey was against the idea.(16)(6)


20 Mar 2012 07:20:37

Before norwich city fans are knocked bye fans from that very poor tean down the road. These yobs spiting pushing kids. Before we gave tgen good stuffing last season. Joke of a football club selling tickets to city fans. In home parts there ground. There is no proof norwich fans were to blame damage to the garden i hope who ever it was is caught.(4)(5)And again, in English please - or do you have trouble typing because of the number of fingers you have?Your grammar is shocking."Twelve toes, he's only got twelve toes"Yes damage after a Newcastle V Norwich game to an England and ex Ipswich legend's memorial. Of course, it was not Norwich fans was it? lets blame the Newcastle fans shall we?It was a disgraceful act by a small minoirty of Norwich fans that has put shame on your club. As an Ipswich fan whilst I don't like Norwich I have always respected your club and the vast majority of your supporters good name has been tarnished by these minority of idiots. You awful post only incriminates you more.Unlike you most Norwich and Ipswich fans actually have respect, somethign you lack in spades.Better be careful he may get angry and bring his family after you all 20,000 of them
