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.

Like Walker-Pieters and Danny Ings? The try before you buy strategy does actually work sometimes.

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.

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.
