Why us it a waste? Do enlighten us all. I would say he seems like he has some good stats, and will fit in well with our attacking force. We have always needed more depth in the squad - spending £5 mil in football nowadays is not bad to get this.

Granted there are other positions that need to be filled and hopefully alderweireld will join - bit he is not the be all and end all for our transfers.

A new rumour that has popped up this afternoon that we are interested in Adam Maher from PSV.

Adam Maher is top banana. I'm surprised more teams haven't been linked with him this summer.

I don't see PSV having to sell anyone else, though, having banked the best part of £30m for Depay.

Max gradel is quality. My neighbour has 2 season tickets at Upton park and I watched him single handedly destroy west ham in a 2-2 draw whilst he was playing for Leeds.

The lad scored 13 in 13 after the afcon.

What about Maher's partner in crime? Wijnaldum is also quality.

The last I read, Wijnaldum was being linked with PSG and Roma.

He's probably out of Saints' range, sadly.

Wijnaldum links have gone quiet, we won't be negotiating with other targets until the Toby situation is resolved, I suspect.

Where did the Maher rumour come from? I have only seen one article stating that he would be a good purchase. Maybe Saints have looked at him, but, I am not aware of any serious interest? - anyone able to confirm? - Eds?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - Saints are one of a number of clubs to have inquired about him this summer, I don't know what the answer was given, but most of the other clubs have looked elsewhere, so I would suggest it was either a ridiculous price or just a not for sale reply.}

heard some rumours about Alderweireld from a couple of people who are usually more right than wrong about saints transfers

Apparently, spurs had a bid accepted and were talking terms but saints put in a late bid matching spurs' (somewhere between €12-€15mil) which was accepted and it looks like he's chosen saints over spurs. Reckons the club are hopeful he'll join up with the squad before they leave for Austria

Just how true this is I don't know. Not sure if any of the ed's know anything about this or not?

Dunno where SaintySaintSaint's source is, but mine is from the forums. There's an ITK who called Juanmi, Cedric Soares and Stekelenberg before they all happened, and he's done the same for Toby today.

Might be time for me to get on the phone to Wonga 1x1.

The 'lateness' was probably due to the fact that his loan didn't finish with us, and thus those terms, until July 1st. So not really late at all. I know AM have sold a CB, but they're looking at bringing in the Monaco chap we were interested in, so reckon Toby is off 100%. If Koeman is to be believed, he'll choose Saints over Spuds.
