Whats about stanciu? Its been quiet now.

Heard something about Malli from Mainz can the EDS shed any light on this rumour?

{Ed002's Note - Mainz had no interest in selling Yunus Malli in January but are aware that Bayern Munich, Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and Galatasaray have all looked at the player. For the summer, Malli is the sort of player who I thought Klopp may have Liverpool scouts look at, particularly given that he knows the player well - but he has not done so. An ex-German international tells me he is getting better and better and would suit the English game. He is also the sort of player that a club like Arsenal may look to if they are planning Central or Attacking Midfield changes but it is Spurs who have continued to show interest in the player in to the new season.}

Boufal has medical today travelling to Super SAINTS.

27 Aug 2016 07:21:04
So it seems! Hope his knee is okay or he won't pass the medical.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 09:28:10
They can still pass him based on the report from lille medical team and agreement of recoup time.

Apparently we have agree a new contract with Jose Fonte for 2 more years. £75k per week. This is being reported this morning. I'd heard that "talks between him and saints were progressing well" yesterday. Great news!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

26 Aug 2016 08:52:55
See we can keep players :) I think this in it self is a big statement for the club. Manchester UTD come in for Fonte, I honestly 100 percent thought he was gone. At his age coming to the end of his career and having just won the European championship with Portugal I really thought he would be off for a last big pay day but mainly to say he played for UTD, to have it on his CV. So this news is most welcome, superb news.

So the club does have it in them to not sell every bit of talent onto bigger clubs. let's hope we can do this more often going forward, no for some signings of our own before the window shuts please :)

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 09:53:31
If this is actually true, Jose Fonte will go down as one of the most important players we have ever had!

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 10:11:37
Think even if he had gone to UTD he would / should still have been held in high regard, but yes a legend for the club :)

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 10:16:47
Agree great if true inly thing is was he ever going? Or was this another great but if business by his agent with him looking after mourinho as well. Don't begrudge home the money but am sure others will have pay parity in their contracts as well. Either way striker and at least one other by end of business please.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 10:38:02
I couldn't agree more, he would always have been very important and a legend if he had have moved, but THIS takes him from Lambert status to Letissier status. Let's build him a statue and call the stadium St Fonte of St Mary's. If I ever see him again I'm going to lick his face.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Aug 2016 10:57:31
Saint ben basingsoke "At his age, coming to the end of his career" Why would you then want him staying till 34? He is too slow NOW, let alone in 2 years. You seem to have contradicted yourself. Get rid and get someone in as good as VVD.

Agree1 Disagree3

26 Aug 2016 11:14:00
LOL he is upthere but Le God status? I don't think so :)

Agree2 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 11:38:23
Larry, Fonte is at least as good as vvd, in fact I would argue better. He is a leader and organised the defence impeccably. Speed isn't necessarily the most important attribute for a commanding CB, I'd argue that he still has it anyway. The whole team jut looks far more confident when he is on the pitch. John Terry is still going strong at his age and being considered for a role in the national team again. 34 isn't old as a CB, maybe as a box to box midfielder who covers upwards of 5 miles in 90 minutes. But even then, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard would still walk into most premier league teams at their age. Fitness levels are much higher now in these players and 34 is a good age.

Agree4 Disagree2

26 Aug 2016 12:49:45
Spot on Jamesaint, Larry lol, WTF! your obviously a deluded pompey or UTD fan. What you have just said is actually funnier than the guy that said robson kanu is better then Charlie Austin. Doughnut :)

Agree2 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 12:52:39
Looking at all 5 of yours posts Larry all you do is slate our players, definitely not a saint! Go elsewhere and moan about your own club!

Agree2 Disagree2

26 Aug 2016 18:33:56
another great attribute of Fonte is his positioning.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 23:05:39
If I disagree with any of you peoples comments you always pull the pathetic skate card.
There are number of people on saints forums who have stated quite clearly, including that actual basingstoke bloke, that he is at the end if his career, Basingstoke then says that he is ecstatic that a Saints player at the end of his career has now got a 2 year extension. That is a contradiction in terms of the English Language. Why want a player a player at the end of his career at all. Le God Les has now got Log, Fonte and Davis on long term contracts who are now on the downward slope.
My opinion. Disagree but don't be a complete ****er and call me a skate. I have been a Saints fan since 1960 onwards

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 13:37:05
Sky sports reports saints have agreed £21 million fee for Boufal, amazing signing!

Believable2 Unbelievable0

25 Aug 2016 14:34:29
Just wonder whether paying that sort of money on an injured player is that wise . How do you do a medical on a player with an injury . I am sure somebody will explain it to me . Could be a great signing though I trust the club on this one.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 16:45:35
They'll take and make an opinion on medical notes for that specific injury if they can't test it fully in a medical. I think he's out until mid Sept plus he'll be off for the ACN.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 05:12:29
But maybe worth of risk. Amazing player, specially in 1vs1 situations. This will be a coup signing!

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 09:24:53
Hope saints hurry up and sign him as Leicester are now interested in him.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 10:57:52
Whats the news on stanciu? Was he a backup target or are saints looking to also bring him in?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

25 Aug 2016 12:06:29
I think he was second choice to boufal if that didn't go through but he's holding out for a bigger offer, he's happy to join us if no one else comes in. I'd say he'll have 2 seasons before moving on.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 12:38:05
Liverpool announce a deal to sign Boufal from Southampton in 2018 for 3x the amount the Saints signed him for.

Agree1 Disagree3

25 Aug 2016 13:20:06
If it happens then we will still be continuing our business model with great success. And Liverpool will still have not won the league.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 19:33:59
Boufal on his way to St Mary's according to sky 20 million bit of a sstatement.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

24 Aug 2016 20:02:59
Napoli interested and has said would prefer to stay in serie a.

{Ed002's Note - He plays for Lille in France.}

Agree4 Disagree2

24 Aug 2016 20:06:04
I have read £21.2m, however, a deal is very close apparently.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 20:08:39
Sorry Harsaint I haven't seen anything on Sky or though if it was true it would be our highest ever signing ahead of Dani osvaldo.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 21:04:10
Now on Sky transfer centre.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 20:42:57
Yeah schoolboy error was thinking of Zara.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 21:54:23
You mean zaza lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 22:02:08
Zaza*

What do you all think about the knee injury though? Out until middle of next month (if no complications) - got to hope he is still on form after injury.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 22:17:38
That's a shop not far from the saints store.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 22:19:20
Also, if it was our highest ever transfer fee, it wouldn't be just Osvaldo that it was more than, but every sogning we have made.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 23:36:23
Still think we will sign a target man as well, probably Ghezzal . The board knows we need to score goals and as good as our squad is it lacks a finisher, we need that.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 14:03:13
Ghezzal is a winger as well, the only out and out striker we may be after is Sebastian haller.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 16:03:32
He is 6 foot tall and can play in the middle as well. Remember Redmond is supposed to be a winger but where is he playing now.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 21:45:07
Agree with Saint marko, I would like to see Seb Haller in, 1 goal every 2 games (near enough)

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 01:13:18
Haller has scored 45 in 119 (1 per 2.64 games) . He also has 2 goals in 3 games this season (a header vs PSV and a penalty vs SC Heerenveen) . Sign him up.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 18:42:03
Rachid Ghezzal Linked, from Lyon I believe. Striker. I don't think there have been any enquirers or bids as of yet but I wonder if ed knows of any interest from our part? Reported in a red top paper site so I won't be putting a months wages on it.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Aug 2016 23:36:06
He is a winger from what I am aware.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 14:32:25
Any news on saints signing stanciu ed, I think he would be a very good addition.

{Ed002's Note - I am not hear to give hourly updates.}

What have you got for dinner tonight ed.

Breakfast tomorrow?

24 Aug 2016 16:15:31
Boufal and stanciu to join in the next 7 days, cocu going to Everton as they splash all that cash about 😉.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

24 Aug 2016 18:39:05
Great. 2 midfielders, that takes our total midfielders to 47. We will let a defender and a striker leave. We could always try a new formation. 1 - 9 - 1.

Agree4 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 19:08:53
1 - 8 - 1. I'll correct myself before someone else does.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 20:50:39
solid midfield.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 16:48:10
George Burley liked buying midfielders too.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 23:37:53
Everton are looking to sign Cuco Martina.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Aug 2016 03:58:22
I don't mind. Is backup level at Saints like Yoshida.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 11:31:49
If you could name me a CB who's not only better but is willing to sit on the bench most weeks and is as much of an influence on the dressing as Yoshida, I'd love to hear it!

Agree5 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 15:23:23
Florin Gardos, LOL :)

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 20:09:04
A Good Steady back up player. you rarely get a Top Class Back up player, cause they wouldn't be back up :)

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 22:38:03
I don't understand why the player would want to leave. Yes I get that we have 2 RB likely to be picked over him, but Everton have coeman? He still won't get games ahead of him. Also RK signed him for saints and barely played him so he obviously isn't that much of a fan? Surely with our European competition he is more likely to get games here. Unless he is to koeman what Paul telfer was to strachan.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 18:41:40
Saints have bid 15 million euros for French lille midfielder soufiane boufal, they want 20 million thoe, Watford also bidding, come on les.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

23 Aug 2016 22:06:10
I've had a look at him, I don't think he looks particularly good. Very weak on the ball. I'd prefer Nicolae Stanciu.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 23:17:27
I am usually very cool headed. and do not question the board at all. But if a team is asking 20million, you don't offer 15mill with days left to go in transfer window. surely, just an example. if reports are correct, we appear to be offering less on too many occasions. ans as Bear would say, "Just Saying"

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 23:20:04
Yeh. we have Bid 15mill . A bid already made by Watford a couple of weeks ago and refused!

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 02:29:18
Transfers can be very complex, although the overall value of the bids may well be the same the bids can be structured very differently, payment times and add ons are an obvious example.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 13:08:11
Fonte as good as gone then. : ( JRod and Clasie likely to leave as well. Any news in INs, Eds? Stanciu, Slimani, Boufal, Haller etc. Some transfer boost now!

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new this morning.}

Believable2 Unbelievable3

23 Aug 2016 15:37:42
someone needs to take their afternoon happy pill.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 18:12:16
Now I have heard that Fonte isn't going. Or looking less likely now than last week. Apparently UTD are looking at other areas to strengthen and they are required to offload before any new players come in. Apparently Jose mourinho wants to strengthen elsewhere as a priority. I'm beginning to wonder if all this Fonte talk was in fact to unsettle the player before the fixture.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 18:16:59
Just seen nicolae stanicu on you tube
Now I know the deal on YouTube but this guy actually looks to be a really good signing if he comes here
Seems to be an aggressive midfielder with a bit of pace and skill to go with it
Good signing for us if it happens.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 01:48:14
Quick question to the Eds. does Stanciu playing for Bucharest in the European play off games against City affect any future transfer (should it happen) to Saints? . will he be cup-tied from European games?

{Ed002's Note - No, it doesn't cup tie him.}

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 17:38:39
Good stuff. Cheers Ed!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 05:15:17
It seems that betting odds were wrong this time, as Fonte agreed new 2 year with Southampton! Great news! :)

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 11:03:32
Reports from Italy are that we are bidding with west ham for striker simone zaza,

Believable4 Unbelievable0

23 Aug 2016 13:04:44
Seen this too!

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 10:57:59
So the Zaza story is back, I don't know a lot about him but he seems to be a fairly decent player, Edd's do you know how true our interest is? thanks.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry. Last I heard he had been priced out of a move.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

23 Aug 2016 11:56:13
The price banded around is 25m euro. West Ham have turned their attention elsewhere. To me, it looks like the agent talking to the media trying to link us and others to the player to get more interest and money. Call me a pessimist but that's how it looks to me. Also I'd be loathed to see the club pay so much for an unproven player in this league when we would really need to rely on him.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 12:42:40
thanks Ed001.
