Apparently, Barcelona are watching Cedric Soares, they have him on their list of potentials to solve their full back problems since Alves left. ( source, telegraph)

At last Caceras comes. Could be the signing of the winter. We create chances and in Monolo we have a finisher, now our weakened defence through sales and injury have a bit of backbone, and more importantly, competition. Caceras is good, because he will force the other potential centre backs to perform at their best or they won't be in. Debut in the final?

Martin Caceres has signed for Saints. On the OS now.

Any truth that Barcelona are in for Caceres Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have a decision to make that might have them bring back a loanee or might have them move for one of a number of free agents.}

I hope so, wages could be a problem though, he also failed a medical at a Turkish club about a month ago so that could also be a problem but I'd love this one to happen.

We've offered him a short-term deal worth €1m until June with the option of extending a further year.

07 Feb 2017 05:50:39
If he stays fit he would be a good addition. He has though got a long list of injuries in the past.

He's currently having a medical.

Waiting on work permit before announcing it.

07 Feb 2017 14:50:14
surely if he signs, he will need to get match fit, and not likely to go straight into the team?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 17:21:40
Got to be a risk bringing him in, we missed the boat with Sakho. The threat of relegation in financial terms would be a disaster and the transfer fee not met by SFC for Sakho might turn out to be very bad business by us. The thought of dropping down to the Championship after all that we have achieved over the last few years doesn't bear thinking about. Playing Russian Roulette with a club usually ends up in tragedy.

Wages will not be a problem, Saints actually pay more wages then Juventus. How things have changed!

Deal done! We are paying him £100000 a week!

Just read that we had a fee agreed with Hoffenheim for Fabian Schar but as soon as they heard Fonte was going for £8mil they upped their price by another £5mil. We then apparently moved onto a CB from Portugal (club not allowed to be named apparently) my guess is Ruben Semedo.

That didn't work out in the end. That's when we apparently moved into Sakho but the fee they wanted for him was extortionate and his wages were far to high for what the club were willing to pay. That's when we moved onto to Tasci, plan was to loan him until the end of the season and then sign him on a free if he impressed but again the club felt his wages were too demanding.

Puel is happy to give Stephens a chance and is happy with Gardos' recovery and progress. I was certainly one that was unhappy with the clubs transfer business this window but after reading this I understand that we have a structure and none of the above players were worth breaking that for, so fair play Les.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

03 Feb 2017 07:23:43
Hopefully schar comes in the summer. we need 2 strong, first team starter centre half's as replacement for fonte and most likely van dijk. yoshida, Stephens and gardos as back up again

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Feb 2017 08:35:40
At over 1,000,000 per place in the league think its a bit short sighted not paying above the structure for a loan player who might of made up 7-9 points easily and possibly silverware. Think we have to go to a back 3 now with McQueen and soares as wingbacks and Bertrand (lb) joining Yosh (rb) and stephens (cb) best of the three in the air. Otherwis e we are going to get crucified no disrespect to stephens (big step up) and yosh (not physically intimidating and prone to one mistake a game) think bertrand would help shore things up. then romeu/ davis as hcm and boufal/ redmond/ tadic or long out wide with manolo through the middle. we need to stop teams scoring as a priority and try and hit on the break with the pace we have.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Feb 2017 09:19:07
We need both Semedo and Schar in the summer. With VVD's future in doubt in the summer we really need two first team CB to be brought in.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Feb 2017 15:44:17
Once again no ambition not even to sign a temporary replacement is it just me or is there no urgency to sign players this player's this season?

Agree0 Disagree2

03 Feb 2017 17:19:29
Just because it's not plastered all over the media doesn't mean the club haven't been busy trying to get players in. Remember the player we buy are ones that will fit straight into our team and system . No point buying someone for the sake of buying someone.

Agree2 Disagree2

04 Feb 2017 00:17:20
I think our problem is paying their stupid wages, we haven't given in to the pressure to change our wage policy. Problem seems to be that all other clubs are finding the money to do this and hope it doesn't backfire on us. I do think the club is right though with this season being a transitional one, just hope there are 3 teams worse than us come game 38.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Feb 2017 04:50:45
Rom saint I agree with you. No point buying if the player isn't right. But likewise there is no point selling unless we have a replacement lined up. Fonte shouldn't have been allowed to leave.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 17:12:51
Selling fonte was a major cock up by who ever makes those decisions!

The original post on this thread reads a lot better before the defeat to West Ham.

£8 Million for Fonte? Looks like a great deal after his performance for West Ham tonight!

Personally pleased we kept JRod and added strength to our strike force. I like Stephens but before Garson got injured he did show promise. Now is his time to step up and deliver. It could be the making or both Stephens and Gardos if they are given a run in the side and not continually rotated.

Believable3 Unbelievable2

01 Feb 2017 14:21:30
Now we sign a club record fee striker and people want to break the club wages policy to sign an unproven defender - one who can't really break into the Liverpool squad of average defenders.

Palace have their own reasons to overpay for a defender as Big Sam starts at the back in his survival strategies.

I am sure a defender or two will arrive after the summer - but give VVD is 70% off to a bigger club - then that is the time to invest.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

01 Feb 2017 16:13:56
If you refer to Sakho, he is not unproven and is worth 20 million IMO. However we can't and never could afford his wages as you mentioned, however the guy is class. The reasons he can't get into the Liverpool side are not based on abilities, ask any Liverpool fan.

Agree3 Disagree1

01 Feb 2017 16:41:00
Fu2 you're right, to pay 100k a week is well beyond our means. I'm a bit Pissed we didn't get someone else in on loan at the back as we do look extremely weak defensively at the moment. if/ when van dijk does go I think we need a bit of an overhaul. the club are giving Stephens and gardos a chance to step up and it's the right thing to do long term to see if they can.

but I think we will suffer short term. I just vvd is back for Wembley otherwise we could be taking a pasting : ( really gabbiadini to hit the ground running. interesting to see what he's like I don't know much about him but we need something different up front.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 17:06:02
How's the free market ed? Any chance of a defender there?

{Ed002's Note - There won't be anyone else arriving now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 23:05:38
I don't think we are too bad at the back - we had a couple of wobbly results - even with VVD playing - but look at the season and add one more goal to our results each game we drew or lost (rather than defend to let one less in) and we would have 17 more points - which would put us in 6th place in the league.

Our goals against is very respectable - but goals for is too low - so if Gabbiadini can get into his stride ready for next season then its all good especially if he scraps it out with Austin for the starting place.

Our wide play is great - esp as a 4.4.2 - we have a strong mid - just need to convert a few more in and around the box - OK a 24 year old Patrick Viera and an Eden Hazard of 3 years ago would be nice too but they are rare.

Be happy - we are in the Premier League -

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Feb 2017 08:28:48
We won't take a pasting - MANU are not prolific scorers this season and they could not score vs Hull this week - and they have all the pressure on them - we go to Wembley and have a go at winning - simple as that.

OK if we are off and they have a great day then that's different - but they will have to play Rooney and he is not the player he was 3 years ago - also we have some decent pace out wide so i think we will cause them issues on the wide pitch as a 4-4-2

We are the perfect team to beat MANU - just go for it on the day - be happy - we are in a final at Wembley.

Agree1 Disagree0

Gabbi signed. he likes to play every match, that's why he felt he had to move. erm welcome to the rotavator, play well , score a hat trick and you can spend next game on the bench hahahaha. in all seriousness good business hopefully well done saints for getting this over the line. sneaky loan for a defender before 11?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

31 Jan 2017 22:49:02
we definitely need a Central defender, so hopefully
Sakho gone to crystal palace apparently

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 00:57:06
At least we have some interesting possibilities now! We'll be fine. just a little bit to used to success and finally we need to reconcile :) let the opportunities happen. you never know. Smile and wave. it will happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 09:12:05
Liverpool take the biscuit with Sakho, not going to lie. We should not sell anymore players to them.

{Ed001's Note - if you had offered to cover his wages, like Palace did, they would have happily loaned him to Saints when there was no one to buy him. They just wanted him out. You can't expect a rival club to do you a favour, especially one that always ends up paying over the odds for players from you!}

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 10:30:39
I agree with Ed001's comment, it must have purely been that Crystal palace were willing to subsidise his wages and saints weren't, (way beyond what we pay anyone at the club) media reports were stating liverpool would only want to sell him in the window, but this obviously wasn't accurate.

And let's all be honest, Liverhampton DO and have paid over the odds for the players they've bought from us, possibly bar Lallana maybe?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 19:31:51
Palace have paid a £2m loan fee and are covering a good proportion of his wages - for 15 games! That is not business, unless big Sam believes he will single handedly keep them up, if he does then it's excellent business.

Liverpool wanted an increase of £4m on the price they paid to sell him to us. He is not worth the price they initially paid, so they should accept that he is now worth less than that. If they weren't so greedy and him for £12 - £14m then they'd have him completely off their books, which is all they want. Nobody was ever asking for a "favour, " just a bit of realism. We're not Chinese you know - yet!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2017 19:33:31
And Ed001. Mane was a snip at £34m!

Rumours floating about for j-rod leaving. I hope not as it looks like he might actually pick up some goals for us. Even with the new signing up top we shouldn't be letting him leave.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

30 Jan 2017 23:21:33
I agree he looks like his form is improving and he looks like scoring when he plays. I would keep him as he is a valuable player now he is fit again.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2017 23:47:19
J-Jod has time and time again to get back to form and it just hasn't happened it's a real shame. It does make sense to keep him when you have we so many strikers and another one on the way.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2017 06:52:09
Makes total sense to me. Short on strikers so get a new unproven one in and then sell the striker who has been first choice recently!
Granted he hasn't hit form yet and I have knocked him recently but he is starting to show improvement plus you can't knock his work rate.
Can't see this happening.

Agree1 Disagree1

31 Jan 2017 18:50:34
Apparently we've rejected a bid from Sunderland for him. right move. I do hope we get a cb on loan
