Hearing that Forster has turned down a contract extension on reduced terms so with only 1 year left on his present contract Saints are open to moving him on this summer. Celtic are thought to be interested to take him back.

Gladly. Will force Ralph to go out and get a proper keeper.

Genuinely no idea on how true this is but heard we're signing Giorgos Giakoumakis from VVV-Venlo. Shane Long is going to Reading and Obafemi off on loan to Bournemouth.

And u heard from where may i ask?

Would be good business I think. Top scorer in the eredivisie for a team that got relegated. As such, shouldn’t be overpriced. I think €8m or so is quite realistic and if Ings does go, get Maitland-Niles and Armstrong/ Lookman for a combined £25m and it’s a good summer.

Long, Lemina, Forster out.
Simeu, Perraud, potentially another few in. I wouldn’t complain.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2021 23:31:41
Newcastle trying to get lemina for £4m. I'd rather make him play out his contract in the reserves.

I agree on sentiment but the monies that frees up both in wages and transfer fees would certainly help. If we did sell Ings or Vestergaard this summer that would go some way to signing another 2/ 3 players. 3 of Lookman, a ST (not paying £20m+ for Armstrong thanks), a midfielder and a full back would do nicely.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2021 16:42:22
Agree re Armstrong. If we could get him for £10-£12m he may be a decent fit but I don't think he'll come to us. Lookman would be a smart move imo. I think that Lemina has been one of Saints worst ever purchases.

Agree0 Disagree0

NEW SIGNING CONFIRMED - Dynel Simeu from Chelsea, 19, CB for £1.5mil.

{Ed002's Note - Dynel Simeu will prove to be a worthwhile buy.}

For once this appears to be shrewd and smart business. Makes a nice change.

One thing I don’t get is how Chelsea have inserted a sell-on clause when he is out of contract?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2021 10:05:57
Think it’s to do with his age, players under a certain age always need a fee paying. One that sticks out to me is Harvey Elliott to Liverpool on a free transfer but due to his age Liverpool ended up paying about £7mil (could have been less) . I think us accepting a high sell on % has helped us to pay a lesser fee. We also won’t start paying the £1.5m until he actually starts playing in the first team so doesn’t go into this summers transfer budget yet (unless he starts first game of the season) .

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jul 2021 14:19:13
If that’s the case then that’s a smart move. And from such a sell-on fee being reported they’re clearly expecting big fees being earned off him in future… hopefully this signals the end of Stephens starting league games.

If Danny Ings was to go, who would fill that gap?
Abraham?

{Ed002's Note - Adam Armstrong perhaps.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Jul 2021 15:13:40
I see Armstrong as another Adams. Good player, after a prolific Championship season, may take a while to come good. Could he hit the ground running?

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jul 2021 16:23:31
Hi Ed’s, do you know if we made the 2nd bid for Armstrong? Lots of mixed reports. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know I am afraid.}

no worries, thanks for replying anyway.

A report in the Express says that if we were to sell Ings to Spurs, we could be interested in a player plus cash deal for either: Winks, Sessegnon or Skipp. I'd be happy with any of those, but on a permanent deal not a loan. Thoughts?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Jul 2021 12:42:28
Add Rodon to that list too.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 13:20:46
Give us Winks, Skipp and Sessegnon and they can have Ings. If they want Vestergaard too give us another £25m so we can buy a striker and another defender. Don’t want to be doing any dealings with Levy though. Don’t like Tottenham the club and don’t like Levy. He’ll smarm his way into getting Ings for a used tissue off of our soft touch of a board.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 20:00:45
I don't think that Saints really want to do business with spurs at all after getting shafted over Hojberg.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have recently reported Ralph is looking to recruit either Brandon Williams or Neco Williams as full back options this summer likely on loan at first with the option to buy in future transfer windows.
Southampton are within days of completing their move for young Manchester United full back Brandon Williams. Himself and his agent have both agreed to part with the Manchester Club and are both set to meet with Southampton representatives this week.

Reports also suggest Leeds United and Brighton are front runners to land Manchester United and Welsh international winger Dan James who impressed during Euro 2020 and is finding game time hard to come by with his respective club. With the arrival of Jadon Sancho this week it looks as if James will be looking for the exit door and it it believed the Southampton boss is keeping close tabs on the situation.

Utd want a £2m fee for his loan so apparently we’ve walked away.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 12:44:56
Pay the money, but only if we have a favourable/ good value buy out clause.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 20:05:54
£2m loan fee plus pay all his wages for a player that will probably spend most of the season on the bench? I'd rather keep looking elsewhere.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2021 11:30:54
A better option would be Sessegnon from Spurs. He can cover LB and LW.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2021 19:01:56
Apparently Nice want Lemina but have only offered €4 million. I know that Saints want him gone but I think they should hold out for more.

eds . fantastic work you do . many thanks . now the silly season is here do you know of any genuine transfer possibilities . many thanks keep up the good work.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer on the timings but don't expect much: There has been interest in:
Josh Griffiths (G) young WBA GK who Southampton scouted on several occasions whilst on loan at Cheltenham.
Neco Williams (RB) The club asked before and were told no, but Southampton may approach Liverpool via his agent to take NW on loan to buy.
Joakim Maehle (RB) Inter and Southampton have been told he is not for sale.
Brandon Williams (LB) a loan consideration for Southampton.
Romain Perraud (LB) well thought of, from Brest and joining to replace Ryan Bertrand.
Marc Guehi (CB) Chelsea will look to have him sign a two year extension and then he will get another loan. Southampton have asked after his availability.
Omar Colley (CB) getting older and off to AFCON means that Sampdoria will listen to reasonable offers. Prior interest of Roma and Newcastle has gone, but Southampton and Leeds may look to an offer.
Evan N'Dicka (CB)
Brandon Williams (LB) a loan consideration.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles (CM) An enquiry has been made by both Newcastle and Southampton. Due to his versatility there will likely be interest from elsewhere as well. He and his agent have made it clear he wants to play in midfield and not as full back. Seems unlikely.
Harry Winks (DM/CM) Won't happen.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (CM) Fulham were keen to make the loan permanent in the summer but relegation ends that if Chelsea make him available, and they will. There have been two enquiries made already. Chelsea have not discussed any interest that Fulham may have and the interest of Crystal Palace will be dependent on who the new manager will be. Aston Villa have John Terry advocating a move and Southampton have enquired after the asking price.
Joey Veerman (CM) Southampton may approach Heerenveen again to see if an agreement can be reached.
Angelo Fulgini (CM) Angers have made clear their asking price for the player who the accept will move on in the summer. There is declared interest from Monaco and from Southampton. By the summer there may well be more.
Thomas Delaney (CM) available with Crystal Palace and Southampton possible destinations.
Takumi Minamino (AM) Sevilla are keen to take Minamino to replace Vazquez but would want a loan to buy. Southanpton are keen to keep him but again it may well be a loan to buy they are looking for.
Brais Mendez (AM) of interest to Southampton, Newcastle and Norwich.
Jacob Murphy (RW/LW) Growing interest with Southampton, Rangers and Burnley declaring an interest.
Demarai Gray (RW) not a CA pick but there might be a real push for him from Everton and Southampton could look to a deal.
Mikkel Damsgaard (LW) Spurs have asked after a price for the player with Sampdoria saying Southampton and Leeds have both enquired about availability.
Adam Armstrong (S)
Jean-Philippe Mateta (S) Crystal Palace are very keen to take the Mainz striker as a Benteke replacement. Southampton my look to an offer if Ings were to leave. He has an excellent goalscoring record.

Would anyone like Saints to go after Calum Chambers? He could cover CB and RB. He seems to have stalled and doesn't play enough. Worth a punt - maybe on loan?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Jul 2021 14:05:59
He probably would be good as cover but I’d like us to prioritise the spots for the first XI players. Ask for Chambo and we can get the old band back together at this rate!

22 Jun 2021 14:40:44
Southampton Expected to sign either Neco Williams from Liverpool or Brandon Williams from Manchester United.

Both players futures were unclear with their respective clubs however reports suggest both players will now be allowed to leave this summer. Neco, currently on international duty with Wales has reportedly been given the green light from Liverpool to leave for around £10 million. The Saints claim to have enquired on the players availability in January however Klopp refused insisting the welsh defender, who can play both on the left and right, was still within his squads plans. It now seems Liverpool are willing to sell up and Southampton could be his destination. The player himself is looking for more game time and has so far failed to get ahead of Trent Alexander Arnold.

Brandon Williams, also thought to be on Ralph's Radar, has now been told by Manchester United he is free to leave on a season long loan. Game time is also the issue with his current club, it is thought both Southampton and Newcastle are at the front of the que for his signature.

I’d like to start signing players permanently. We get stuck in a catch 22 whereby either the player flops or he has a super season and his price is hiked up. Both of these lads fit the bill for me. Get it done Saints.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2021 19:07:19
Like Walker-Pieters and Danny Ings? The try before you buy strategy does actually work sometimes.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2021 17:45:55
It does but I personally don’t like it. Didn’t work with Alderweireld, and arguably we would’ve gotten both of those players for at least 5m less. If they are good enough to sign then trust it and sign them permanently. Loan to buys, to me, say we aren’t confident or decisive enough in our decision making process.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2021 13:03:11
No but we wasted money on players like Hoedt, Carrillo, Osvaldo, boufal, Gunn, lemina just off the top of my head and that's money we can't ever recouperate. Loan to buy definitely the way forward. If we pay 5m extra for a player it's better than their whole price tag to be a flop. Do you not agree?

Alderweirald wasn't a failure he was brilliant for us just unfortunate that he was also a higher class of player than our clubs financial standing and Tottenham could offer him a closer to his goals than we could.

BBC reporting our interest in these players:

Alberth Elis, Forward (Boa Vista)
Junior Firpo, Defender (Barcelona)

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Jun 2021 13:40:28
Would love Firpo. Hope is that Barcelona need a lot of players off their books so to snap him up for seven figures would be excellent.

Elis would be a bit of a gamble but could provide that bit more than our other wingers. Good to see that ‘hopefully’ we’re trying to get business done early.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2021 13:20:37
Firpo signs for Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2021 22:10:09
NEW SIGNING -

Romain Perraud, left back from Brest, £8,500,000. Let's hope he has the same impact Bertie had all those years ago!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 Jun 2021 13:20:49
Fingers crossed. Not over the line yet and apparently a few clubs are interested.
