Just read, Southampton have made a loan offer for Atletico Madrid winger Nicolas Gaitan.
Now, that would be Great!
Don't know if that's aswell as any possible Promes deal or as a back up if the deal doesn't happen.
Can you verify this or add to it EDS?

{Ed002's Note - The interest is there in Gaitan.}

Eds am reading Promes is going to reject us. Hence the Gaitan move. Have you heard anything?

{Ed002's Note - To be fair I can't see any reason for Quincy Promes to leave Spartak for Southampton.}

Would way rather Promes personally. Extra pace which I think is what we lack, and younger. Seems like more of a long-term buy in our typical mould.

the reason for promes to leave spartak for soton is they are russias celtic win a league that is weak then get beaten by 7 by Liverpool. If he signs plays well he will be off in 18months for more money and won't have to put up with racist crap from his own supporters in the interim.

I feel we can sign Promes and we are trying but I think if he was to accept to join our club, there would be a clause to be sold immediately if we did get relegated or missed out on Some other league and or FA cup targets. I hope he signs!

I think for Promes it would be a smart move. UK is totally different country than Russia. Secondly, in Soton giants may notice you. Of course, he will be with us only for 18 or 30 months, but we have to accept that fact.

{Ed002's Note - So you think he should agree to 2 and a lf years in the widerness to be noticed by "giants"? A move to Southampton would make zero sense for him.}

He would honestly probably be with us for less. The cons do outweigh the pros For him to join Southampton. But we can dream! What ever happened to leo baptisao? We still interested in him?

Russian league very different from PL. Usually the giants want to make sure player can perform in the top league, before buying. You think it was a bad move for Mane as well to come to Southampton? And don't forget Russia is Rusdia for living.

Just read a report where the media said Promes didn't want to join Southampton but his instagram account commented "false" suggesting he is interested!?

Hi eds. Thanks for all the help I here. Do you believe the rumours coming our saying he does notbwantbto join are true. If so is it only gaitan as a potential other option or is there anyone else that we are looking at that's may be signed this month.

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of rumours but it makes little sense for him to move to Southampton, but we will see. It would take a significant offer to make something happen.

There is interest from several sides in Gaitan. A move might bring out the better side of his play which has been drifting away recently.}

Thank you. I agree seems a strange move for him given our current position.

Someone it a similar style to him I think is Definately needed and would work well with the addition of carillo.

Don't see why Southampton would be quite such a weird move for Promes. Sure, it seems like he could do a bit better and at least find a club of Everton's stature, but we've seen weirder things happen.
