Lemina off to Galatasaray. I actually hope that he stays there.

I hope all of these loans (with an option to buy) turn into actual sales. It's a joke, we've got £80m worth of players out on loan. The recruitment the past few seasons has been poor. Apart from FF, the other 3 players have barely served the club. Carillo has played like 5 games for us and we've loaned him out on the final year of his contract.

Oh well, onwards and upwards. Ralph's got rid of all the dead weight around the camp, watching the game against United on Saturday we were superb on the press, we'll be a hard team to play against this season.

Basically we totally wasted the VVD money then!

If you check Transfermarkt, you'll find that Carrillo's contract runs out 30th of June 2021. If they don't buy him next summer, his contract is likely to be terminated like Clasie's. Must be the worst transfer ever!

Seems Elyounoussi is joining FF on loan at Celtic - they've already done enough for us recently 😂

If we could ship a CB out to lighten the wage bill I'd call that a pretty decent window - looking forward to seeing Boufal and Djenepo tear it up as well, both look like quality if they cement their places in the side.

Nice to see competition for attacking places in a saints side, haven't had such depth there in many yesrs.

I've just read via a newspaper story that Saints goalkeeper and good servant of the club Fraser Forster is possibly about to sign for Celtic

It's initially on a season loan but could become permanent if all parties are happy to.

I'd like to which Fraser all the very best of luck with this move and hope it makes any of his factors in his personal life or wellbeing happy and in good shape.

Good luck Fraser, and thank you for all your efforts while a Saint. You've done well!

Saint Etienne.

Forster to Celtic? . does Charlie Nicholas know something or is he just giving an opinion.

We can only hope.

100% Forster is off to Celtic, Jack Stephens could apparently be off too.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2019 18:19:24
Just seen the squad list and confirmed shirt numbers for the coming season - Is there any reason why no one has taken the number 8 shirt? Are we expecting a free agent to sign?

According to sky sports saints have put in a deal sheet for Kevin danso highly rated centre back with Augsburg. He has been watched by a number of clubs. Happy 2019-2020 season guys.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

08 Aug 2019 18:42:03
I'd be happy with Danso. Young and eager to learn. Got to be better back up than Stephens.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 20:47:42
Not reading anywhere that the Danso deal has been completed - Did we get him.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 22:05:43
Danso is done-so.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 22:39:44
It seems so. at last. Both Adam Blackmore and Adam Leitch are reporting via Twitter that the paperwork has been sorted, with an announcement expected tomorrow. They are both reliable sources, so it looks like we're there now. This must have been the latest deal we've ever worked on!
Let's hope Danso is the business as our defence sure does need strengthening. Last season's record of dropping points from winning positions absolutely must be addressed.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 17:39:11
Saints have submitted a deal sheet by the 1700 deadline. come onnnn defender!

And not a clue who it is given all the media sniffing around the grounds - love how quiet we keep it!

Just hope we can get something over the line.

09 Aug 2019 06:14:29
Seems that we did :) Hope the club will announce Danso today.

Heard of any last minute incomiings Eds?!

{Ed002's Note - Charlie Austin is expected to go and I would not be shocked if a full back were to arrive, perhaps on loan.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Aug 2019 10:19:54
Cheers. no centre backs tho? Guess Ralph is trusting what he has. Just would have liked a more secure head but those players are not leaving, clubs I suppose. everyone wants them! 😬.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 10:23:04
God I hope it's a left back. I'd take Bertie back on the left side of a back three again if it means having a stable defense. Should've never let Targett go.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 10:29:07
Is this full back talk because we have a potential buyer for Cedric with some sustenance in Europe Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t understand what you mean about “sustenance”. But there is a potential buyer for Cedric in Monaco.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 14:43:26
Ed0002, is the full back the one from Spurs? Kyle Walker-Pieters?

{Ed002's Note - He is an option.}

Reading this evening that Josh Sims is in advanced talks to join New York Red bulls on loan for the season. Surprised by this, thought he had a good chance to stake a claim for a starting berth this year at Saints. Thoughts?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Aug 2019 21:15:53
It's a shame because he has talent. I think with Boufal coming back, his chances will be limited.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 00:38:24
Difference between Josh and Boufal is that Josh is aggressive, fast, positive and intelligent . exactly the attributes need in the PL . should never let him go .

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 09:27:54
I think it's a good idea let him get one more season of first team football. I fear his chances would be limited this season otherwise. Could just be a rumour, what was the source of this one? Rare for players to go to MLS.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 13:04:45
Sims is a good player but the problem is he's a bit lightweight for the premiership. skilful but gets knocked off ball to easily.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Aug 2019 10:08:40
I was under the impression he'll be back after Christmas. Assuming he's had a few months first team football hopefully he'll provide a new energy for the 2nd half of the season, he'll be like a new signing!

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 23:09:24
Only a few days to go and very little news on either ins or outs. Really can't see any more incomIngs at this point - would love another defender - but maybe a few fringe players may exit by Thursday night.

If that's the case, I can see us having an entertaining season, similar to Bournemouth - loads of goals at both ends - but maybe not enough to breach the top ten at this point.

What do we think of our prospects given how our squad seems to be shaping up?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Aug 2019 07:45:31
Still weak in central defence. Apart from that I think the squad looks strong. Change isn't always necessary when it comes to the team, getting them to play consistently to their best is what we need.
That said a strong experienced centre back in place would be ideal as our back ups aren't up to the challenge.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 09:23:46
Maybe we'll loan in a centre half with the option to buy? Or maybe we'll take the risk and sign one regardless of the players we want out leaving. I reckon we'll already have the player we want to be lined up as it's literally only the case of getting rid of our unwanted stock before we bring someone in, this wouldn't be a signing just for the sake of signing someone.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2019 15:29:49
Saints are trying to sign on loan Jean Clair Todibo from barcelona. he's a 19 year old French centre half . very highly rated.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2019 08:50:06
Few outlets linking us with Benoit Badiashile - seems a bit unrealistic to me, heard anything on this Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Wolves have held talks with ASM about him.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2019 17:14:13
I've heard whispers about Scott Banks . Any news about him eds?

{Ed002's Note - No sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2019 14:58:37
Apparently Everton considering an offer for Lemina.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Aug 2019 03:13:11
Everton have signed a DM, I don't believe any of these Lemina rumours. If he does go I think it'll be a cheap sale or loan to a European team after our deadline.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2019 16:07:49
Wolves are supposed to be interested in signing lamina . is there any truth in this ed.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

26 Jul 2019 21:56:10
Hi Ed, are you aware of Saints tracking any players currently?
I have not seen or heard anything of any substance recently.

{Ed001's Note - I am aware that they are defo still intent on making signings, but Ed002 would be better placed to put names in.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2019 08:46:58
Do have any names, Ed002? Cheers!

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 12:18:13
eds any ideas who saints are rumoured to be serious about . keep up the good work.

{Ed002's Note - The efforts are on Amazon right now I am told.}

Believe saints must sell before they can buy . plenty of deadwood to get rid off.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jul 2019 11:17:25
So far this season we've spent the following:

Ings - 18m
Adams - 15m
Djenepo - 15m

And we've made the following from sales
Targett - 11m
Gallagher - 5m
Gabbiadini - 10m (money's been spent)

I would imagine that Ings money was already forecast so that wouldn't come out of the pot of transfers this season. Cutting out the deadwood is going to be hard, but he's what we have and what we could end up making.

Austin - 5-8m
Lemina - 20-25m
Stephens - 5-8m
Hoedt - 8-10m
Boufal - 8-10m
McCarthy - 5-8m
Forster - 5-8m
Clasie - 3m
Carrillo - 8-10m
Cedric - 8-10m

So by cutting out these players we could make 100m (I don't think we'll be able to sell half of these) - RH has said he only wants to spend 15m on players, anyone that comes in will be young and cheap. We're building a squad for tomorrow and not for today. I would imagine we already have the players we want in the pipeline, we're just waiting for sufficient funds to do so.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2019 11:54:23
Sorry Saintjay, I know this is probably personal opinion but there is no way we will get a transfer fee for Forster. It is pretty much common knowledge that saints would happily let him go for free to get him off the wage bill, but there are no takers due to high wage. Think we are stuck with him until contract expires.

I think some of the others would be very optimistic too, such as 8-10M for Hoedt.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2019 14:05:35
I know I was probably being a bit too optimistic earlier - we've shot ourselves in the foot with our players on their massive salaries. Most first-team players earn over 50k a week and they're simply awful and bring nothing to the club, annoyingly we can't get rid of them to lower clubs because they don't want to take the hit.

I only say this for Hoedt because I've read the rumour that his agent has met with AC Milan about the possibilities for a deal of 10m. But yeah those amounts were just pulled out of the sky and bear no relevance to anything in reality.

I don't think we'll be able to flog our GK's, maybe McCarthy but I can't see FF leaving this summer. I think we'll sell Lemina, Boufal, Austin and Clasie, don't think the others will go though.

Agree0 Disagree0
