Schneiderlin has put in a transfer request as reported. The Sky "source" is the player's agent.

Are you saying that Spider has submitted a formal written request for a transfer or just a verbal declaration?

2.) Even if he has it won't be accepted. kreuger has set himself up for a massive fall if he now let's him go.

3.) Ospreysaint welcome sir :) was the daily echo really getting that bad?

Signing Jack Rodwell, which is possible, would be enough for anyone's juices to be running. The perfect replacement for Schneiderlin. Rodwell is open to a move but Man City want a loan move. Still no sign of Levy increasing Spurs' bid for Schneiderlin, so the player is stuck.

Incidentally, the rumoured 70 million for Hernandez, Young and Zaha - true or not - is perfect confirmation that Southampton budgeting includes taking wages into account. There is no way that any club will pay 70 million for those three players. A huge proportion of the 100 + 60 million being touted about is being allocated to wages, bonuses, signing on fees etc.


1.) We have freed up a lot of wages when Lovren, Lallana, Lambert, Shaw and Chambers left and some of them must of been some of our highest earners, including now Osvaldo's Inter move, I appreciate that the club has to budget for wages and that these players could be on more than the players that have left, but you have to add in the freed up wages that will now have too, so it may not have to all come from our £90m revenue from player sales

Agree with a previous poster: looks like the mass exodus has been delayed by the clubs insistence that no transfers will happen until after a manager has been appointed.

Suggestions are that the club is deliberately delaying the appointment until after the World Cup starts, to force a delay in any more player speculation. This might even allow a new managerial appointment to persuade players to stay.

However, Shaw confirms that he asked to leave Southampton. Shaw has admitted to the BBC that he told the club on 11 May that he wanted to leave.
What Shaw hasn't admitted to yet, is that his agent said the same back in January.

Some naive comments above: players left Southampton because the players wanted to leave. Once a player and their agent say they want out, the club can do very little about it, other than get a good price.
The fees for them are still being paid to Southampton therefore guaranteeing a steady source of income for the club over the next 3-5 years.

Maddison is from the midlands. All the indications are that he would prefer a move to Leicester but his advisors are waiting to see if Everton make a bid.
Agree with the Ed: he would be better off at Southampton.

To clarify: saints absolutely cannot afford his wages, fees, clauses etc.

And to confirm this : Koeman admitted it today to the press.

Now we all know that clubs don't always tell the truth to the press and fans. Koeman is clearly interested but it would be a pointless, expensive and risk to venture to sign a 30 year old. It might cost the club about £10 million.

Absolutely not. His wage demands, signing on fee, performance clauses, agents fees will be astronomical and out of Saints reach.

As I said, let's wait and see. But as I also said, if a bid comes in, he want likely want to leave. Coherent and cogent analysis ;)
