Southampton have tabled a £8m bid for Yohan Cabaye to replace Morgan Schneiderlin


1.) 28 Jun 2015 16:16:34
Sounds very promising but isn't Cabaye an attacking midfielder and we need to get someone that sits in front of the back four , top player though but at 29 would we have to pay an over inflated price for him?

2.) 29 Jun 2015 09:08:04
prowsey,davis ,wanyama and reed can do the defensive mid role

3.) 29 Jun 2015 10:51:46
Imbula is a target for spiders replacement along with gueye. Imbula is reportedly keen on saints according to French papers and we have enquired to the availability of gueye with saints happy at lilles valuation although a deal is not certain.

Anyone else heard about Southampton looking at a £4m plus Mayuka bid for Nathan Redmond just heard it from a strong reliable source don't know what to make of it


1.) I hope so, I haven't seen Mayuka do anything to convince me he's any good, Redmond has

2.) Agree, Mayuka has potential, although I don't see him cutting it in the EPL.
If Mayuka does go we'll need at least 2 possibly 3 forwards to come in.

3.) No idea if it's true, but sounds a good deal to me. Mayuka's garbage. Anything that gets him off the books and someone half decent in return is positive outcome.

Redmond's very handy.

4.) 08 Aug 2014 14:19:06
Mayuka is very young and has heaps of potential he did well out on loan last year for a team that got relegated, we should keep him and help him progress

5.) Mayuka couldn, t score to save his life!

Taider deal all gone through fine given number 17 shirt. So still expect some more signings coming soon


1.) Finally. next.

2.) Where does it say given number 17?

3.) @The Hedge on the Saints twitter

New signing, Saphir has been given number 17 shirt

4.) Sorry, it wasn't on saints website and I didn't check Facebook!

Vlarr, Van Dijk and Forster all warped up and done deal expected to be unveiled within a week


1.) Not until Celtic are confident of UCL

2.) Ed007 any news on this from Celtic's end, are they wrapped up or nearly wrapped up? Sorry to be taking your players but the supposed fees should allow for plenty a signing to replace.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic will do everything in their power to make sure neither of them leave before their CL fate is known and I'd be surprised if either of the players would push for a move before then. If the £9.5 million offer for Forster is true that'll have been accepted IMO but Celtic will also look to keep everything under wraps so as not to derail the CL qualifiers.}

3.) 29 Jul 2014 21:17:28
put 30 million price tag on him
not a penny less if a club pays up let him go
if not he stays end of
really peed off with these money grabbing ------ now
hope the board mean business now or someone is going to look silly

Vlaar deal nearly finalised believed to be in the region of £9m has been told he will be the captain.


1.) What happened to vlaar is not leaving?

2.) 24 Jul 2014 08:00:46
i don't see why everyone is so hyped up by the ron vlaar transfer only cause he had a great WC in a 5-3-2 system doesn't mean he's as good in a system with 4 defenders

3.) The Express also says Hamburg are competing with Southampton to land Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk and are preparing a £6million bid - although the paper also reports that figure is likely to be rejected by the Scottish champions.

4.) Reports saying spurs now in for vlaar as per usual les and the boys taking to long to sign there targets

5.) We may well sign him but can't see him being instantly made captain, Fonte for me.

6.) Any deal for vlaar will drag on. with just a year left on his contract and lambert not wanting to sell him they will be holding talks & putting down offers etc.

7.) 24 Jul 2014 10:28:56
All Koeman said was that he was a possibility, I'm sure there is a long list of people who could possibly be brought in. I think Vlaar is a top player and I wouldn't complain if he did sign, but I do think the amount of money Villa would ask for, if we did make a bid, could be spent on a better player IMO

8.) 24 Jul 2014 10:32:06
Isn't he captain with Villa? Might be the final strae to get him here. can't see its as close as o.p says. Is mentioned on newsnow that we want him and villa might struggle to get him to say now villa are being sold.

As far as de vrij, aren't Man U in for him?

9.) Instantly making him captain is ludicrous, could see that annoying the likes of Fonte and Schneiderlin as well which we don't really want to do in our situation.

10.) @dj-mcg Vlaar is a great cb he's pretty much the sole reason villa haven't gone down yet and he'll probably be even better in a defense that doesn't let him down as much

11.) @saint marco just because it's been reported that another team are in for a player doesn't mean the board are taking too long. Everyone knows the club do things on the quiet, we could be at any stage of negotiations with any team for any player. Be patient, quit moaning about the board when you have no facts to back it up

12.) Vlaar is not as good as lovren simple as that we have taken a step backwards with all our signings so far.

13.) Maybe but 20m would get us vlaar and van dijk who is mustard. and we would have change left.

14.) Lallana T**tbeard is not as good as Tadic and Sir rl is not as good as Pelle and Targett? can kick with his right foot, Shaw can't.

15.) Vlarr is not worth 5 million. Good defender but think we should look elsewhere someone a bit younger

16.) I agree, I'd prefer someone younger than Vlaar, and all Koeman said was that he's a possibility

17.) Vlaar would be a straight replacement, but short term replacement. I would trust vlaar to do a good job as he has plenty of pl experience. We should also buy another, but if they have no pl experience it would be risky.
That said I don't feel we will get him. I can't see us bidding 9m as we only bid 3. 5 for Forster. I doubt we would make him captain

18.) I agree with Saintsmiff that he would be a short term replacement. Similar to Pellegrini bringing Demichelis to Man City because he knew he would get the job done, Aston Villa will want more than 5 million at the bare minimum, which is too high for a short term replacement IMO

19.) 24 Jul 2014 22:19:42
why would he want to leave Villa for soton

20.) Because villa will do well to remain in the prem during the next 3 seasons. Lerner didn't want to bank roll villa to take them to the next level hence MON left. Been on a slippery slope since. Saints maybe a mid table team now but future prospects are brighter.

21.) He may want leave as he isn't getting any younger and may want a new challenge. Previously working with koeman is also a plus. The question you should ask, is why he would want to stay at villa? They are as guilty of saints of lacking ambition and the fact that villa are up for sale, can't see any changes there for a while

22.) 24 Jul 2014 23:45:38
Vlar is a top lead defender. He completely controled the dutch back line which was one of the best defensive units in the world cup. Just because you play a back 5 doesn't necesarrly make your job easier. As a lead defender you have more bodies to keep inline, which he did fantastically. As well as keeping villa up last season and having tons of prem experience. As RK likes to play a back 5 anyway he would be a perfect fit, and at 29 he is probably into his best years as a player. Would give us at least 3 or 4 real good seasons and allow a younger CB like van dijk or de vrij or someone to develop and take over. Think he would be a top signing

23.) 25 Jul 2014 11:17:55
Don't know if this is true but just because Lambert said he's not for sale doesn't mean the owner won't sell, at the end of the day it will be him that accepts or rejects a bid. He wants out of the club doesn't he

Sadio Mane has been successful in obtaining a work permit doubtful for place against swansea hopefully looking to start against arsenal in the cup


1.) 18 Sep 2014 19:46:52
May feature, not the same as starting.



11 Aug 2014 16:59:02
Liverpool now in for Byram surprised they didn't wait for saints to buy him then take him next season at an inflated price


1.) Would not believe a word about Liverpool.

They are linked with every footballers that breathes.

Not sure how much money they have left after we mugged them off.

Look at the table this time last season Saints in 3rd Saints only let in 5 goals played 2 of the big teams but ended up in 8th
This season Saints in 2nd Saints only let in 5 goals played 2 of the big teams but you reckon that the pundits have it wrong to not get carried away and say we will end up 4th. Did you say last season at this stage we were going to end up 4th?
