Hi Ed’s, I understand you must be busy this time of year but I was wondering if you have any information on potential incomings to St Mary’s. Very little news in this regard and any information we do have seems to possess very little in the way of concrete evidence.

{Ed002's Note - Gabbiadini out - interest in Thiago Mendes, Danny Drinkwater, Thomas Goiginger, Shoya Nakajima, Lookman and Toloi. Edin Dzeko - an enquiry has been made and Danny Ings (S) loan to permanent.}

Lookman would be exactly the player we need imo - young with huge potential, but capable of adding much needed pace and energy this season as well.

Don't know too much about a few others, but really not convinced by Drinkwater.

{Ed002's Note - Don't worry about Drinkwater, he will move elsewhere.}

Drinkwater!? God no. Please NO!
Dzeko would be fantastic. Don't really know much about the others but seems nakajima looks promising from what I've read. Lookman seems very hit and miss for Everton.

Ed I thought the deal for ings to be made permanent was in the coming summer? . if they are looking to make it permanent now would the reason be to free up more loan places or to loan another player from Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - Yes the summer, these are not related to any particular transfer window.}

Thank you ed. Appreciate the info as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. Nakajima and Lookman are where we might see a push.}

Would be very excited if we could sign Lookman in Particular. However from what I’ve read Everton seem as though they’d drag their feet and be unwilling to sell. The worst part about being a Saints fan is the deafening silence that always surrounds our potential incomings!

Thanks Ed for the good info once more! Any other outs than Gabbi? I understood Ralph thinks our squad is too big. How about Long, Austin, Cedric, Hoedt out?

{Ed002's Note - Wesley Hoedt if a buyer is out there would be the most likely.}

Great info ed. Thanks. Hoedt out for 8-10 mill would mean taking a 5 mill hit. but he really doesn't seem to be in RH plans.

{Ed002's Note - You are right,

I’d be happy with who ever Ralph brings in based on the way he’s started off his Southampton managerial career
This wouldn’t have the les reed seal of approval and would probably be our best signing or singnings for some time
