Southampton are set to sell out of favour striker Billy Sharp to Nottingham Forest. The price is in the region of £3.Million but it is thought that Southampton want Lewis McGugan in some kind of deal?

Shame to lose Billy Sharp. Think he would have been useful to us. Good luck to him, every success in the future.

Agree9 Disagree1

I really doubt we'll take anyone from Forest. 3 million would be fair enough for Sharp. I mean it's not like he's ever playing for us again.

Agree3 Disagree3

I like sharp, he's a good play and would be good to come on as a super sub and competition for places up there.

Agree7 Disagree0

I personally don't think we should sell him until the end of the season. On the off chance we get relegated (which I sincerely hope doesn't happen) he's excactly the type of player we need to help us get back up.

Aussie Saint

Agree8 Disagree1

He won't come back to the saints he's settled up here

Agree3 Disagree1

Aussie Saint you talk alot of sense

Agree3 Disagree1

There is a buy clause in the loan and he can't be recalled until end of season. Why the hell would Forrest buy him now. In short, what a crock of rubbish.

David's Astori has informed Cagliari he wants to leave the club. However Cagliari are still playing hardball with Saints over the transfer fee and how that fee is payed.

Sounded like the complete deal will total 10 million last time I heard anything on it (this morning) from one of my colleagues.

Agree2 Disagree1

Here we go again..............

Agree7 Disagree0

Just read that ac milan might be after him as well. I hope us stuffing around is not going to cost us a crucial signing.

Work at Saint Marys stadium. Overheard a few fragments of conversation from Adkins. Shaun Wright-Phillips name was mentioned.

I really hope we don't sign him! Not the kind of quality Saints need for longevity and posterity in the EPL!

Haha thats original

Agree4 Disagree3

If you worked there you would surely know it is St Mary's and never called Saint Mary's.

Also no chance of SWP

Agree8 Disagree8

It is called Saint Mary's...... the "st" is an abbreviation for saint.... thought every fan would know that

Agree5 Disagree4

Sure adkins aint trying to flush out the rats by saying a name infront of people to see where it ends up? Business will be discussed between him and cortese im sure!

Agree3 Disagree3

My partners sister works in the ticket office and even she says they hear nothing there's always whispers but no one knows anything as its all done up the chain so people claiming they work there and hear stuff is just as reliable as the other people on here making stuff up.

Just a heads up as soon as you say "I know someone who works..." no one will belive you
