Jason Puncheon waiting on Southampton to offer him a new deal

Jason Puncheon’s Saints contract continues to run down, with the in-form winger now into the final few months of his deal.

Puncheon headlines a list of nine first-team players at St Mary’s due to become free agents in the summer.

The 26-year-old, who has been in tremendous form, has already he wants to stay next season.

But a contract extension is still to be sorted out. Saints are not yet under any major pressure to agree new terms, despite Puncheon being close to the end of his deal.

The player and his representatives are not allowed to speak to any other clubs within the same association, and can only therefore talk with those outside of England.

That is an unlikely scenario, especially as the winger has already made his intentions clear. Asked if he hoped to be back at Saints next season, Puncheon, pictured, recently replied: “I’m hoping to be, I’m happy here, and that’s the most important thing.”

Given his performances this term, it is almost inconceivable that the club would allow the player to leave for nothing, although they could wait until the summer to resolve the issue. Saints’ approach to the contracts of their key players means they have few major concerns on the horizon.

Most of their most influential stars are tied down to long-term deals, although Rickie Lambert and Morgan Schneiderlin are due to be up for renewal in 2014, as are Guly do Prado and Kelvin Davis.

As well as Puncheon, keeper Artur Boruc, who has started to cement the number one shirt, is also heading towards the end of his contract.

He only signed at St Mary’s until the end of the season when he joined in September.

However, should recent performances continue, an extension could well be warranted.

Fellow keeper Tommy Forecast, who has not played a single first-team match since joining in 2008, will undoubtedly be released.

The same fate is set to befall Ryan Dickson, currently on loan at Bradford City.

Ben Reeves, who has been farmed out to Southend, also sees his contract expire in the summer and the 21-year-old academy product may have to leave to pursue regular first-team football.

Saints also have a quartet of more senior players to consider, each of who have contributed to the club’s success over the past few seasons.

Centre-half Dan Seaborne, who is on loan at Cherries until the end of the campaign, is approaching the end of his deal, along with midfielder Richard Chaplow and full-backs Frazer Richardson and Danny Butterfield.

Between them, however, they only account for two Premier League starts and six substitute appearances this term.

Onceagain the Echo tries to stir things up.

For all we know, Puncheon may well have been offered a new deal.

Gordon Simpson, or Homer as I'm sure you're known outside of this pathetic local rag, why do you persist in trying to unsettle the playing staff of Southampton FC? Maybe if you tried investigating before writing articles you would be welcomed at St Mary's Stadium!

And why mention RL and MS in this article as they are still under contract until 2014? Time to face the facts - no-one at Saints wants to talk to you! Get over it and prove that you deserve to be welcomed back by the club.

id like to see puncheon sign a new deal, and extend boruc for another 2-3 years if he keeps up his form until the end of the season.

the rest can move on, but thanks for all your hardwork over the last few years.

ps, surely lambert can play until hes 35, get him signed up forever!

also get morgan on a long term contract, when will these 2 be offered contracts, near the time of their renewal?

I would like to think that punch would get a new deal, he has been one of our stand out performers this season. The likes of seaborne, Richardson, dickson and butterfield, I expect will be thanked for services and promptly shown the door. Chaplow is well down the pecking order, JWP, cork, spider Davis are all better so will always get the nod in front of him. So with the above 4 probably departing at the end of the season, and maybe throw in forte, Hammond and Barnard, who will not get a look in and join the others on the bus, free up some wages and get some better quality players to enable us to cement our place in the premier league. We must have some more youngsters coming through by then who can help!?

Chaplow was constantly losing the ball in the championship, so what makes you think he can do a job in the prem. I would rate both Lee and Sharp above him. Chaplow is at best an average championship player.

Bring back Branfoot says...

Poch showed some real interest in purchasing an attacking midfielder in the January Window, which means he probably doesn't fancy an existing player or players as starters. My gut feeling is that he is probably looking for a proven finisher with a good long range shot. Not to diminish our lads, but too much burden has fallen on Rickie's shoulders this season as far as goal scoring is concerned.

I hope Punch isn't replaced because he's been really productive this season and chipped in with a few goals. But Cork and Adam are so solid, Morgan's our best ball winner and sth tells me Gaston will figure in his plans because of his creativity. So if he does bring in a new face sb has to make way!

I still think Punch will be offered a new contract because he's proved he can cut it at this level. So even if Poch doesn't fancy him as a starter long term, he could still play a role as a squad player.

Perhaps the club wish to ensure they are a Prem team next season. Why agree new terms on Prem wages now if the worst happened.

Plus maybe he has been promised the new contract if he continues to perform week in week out, that would be his motivation.

We have all seen loan players lose that motivation once their wages were guaranteed for 2 - 3 years having signed a contract.

With Poch it's very early days but you can see what his vision is. Rickie up front with attacking midfielders pushing up to support him and to press the opposition back four. With the team playing a fluid direct passing game, the fluidity of which still needs work.

This system relies heavily on a couple of attacking midfielders,who have a good long range shot and who can take their chances when in the box. I expect him to bring in such a player in the summer. Don't get me wrong I believe we have the makings of an excellent midfield unit, but with the system Poch has put in place he'll want another creative Player but with a proven shot.

So I am betting that later today there will be a thread about an ex-Saints player who will be quoted as saying we must keep Puncheon, or someone or other. They wil say how we we will succeed in Europe or there will be their team selection for the Newcastle game.

They dig up the old boys whenever the news is a bit thin.

I'd wager that we get some comment from MLT, as he can't seem to sneeze without it being published these days or maybe someone from the '76 cup final side telling us how it was all different back then.

Any guesses who it's likely to be ?

As yet we still haven't secured our place in the EPL for next year, so any contract would have to deal with the possibility of Championship football next season. Punch by his previous actions has made it clear that he won't drop down a division, so once we have secured our EPL status for next season I would think contract talks will become a lot easier, plus there will be more money floating around.

Puncheon is clearly "one of the lads" but do his antics mess with the players heads? He is a right show off as seen by the number of times he was on camera/shot during the review last season - he wants to be in the limelight! His latest antic relating to bowel movements - whilst may entertain those of an immature nature, not sure it is what Nicola wants in his globe trotting dream of world domination!
His shooting seems to have improved a bit, but is he creative enough for the new Manager?
Probably worth a short contract extension to keep him keen and fresh. Just hope he spends his money more wisely and lays off the dodgey burgers or keebabs responsible for the afore mentioned bowel movement!

It’s an intriguing one, Punch has definitely come on this season to stand up and be counted.
However, are their better options out there? perhaps.

I say sign him up, though I would not argue if he was replaced next season by someone with more talent, say Bale.

If I was the chairman I would give Punch a 3 year deal. That way if he's sold we can get a decent fee for him.

I keep reading that Wet Spam are interested in Sir Rickie. I can't see it happening as Rickes' neck couldn't take the strain of looking up to the sky for the ball all the time.
Also he would struggle to master how to drop to the floor like a sack of spuds if he was to take on the Andy Carroll role.

I see Alan Pardew has already started making excuses for the Newcastle game.He's saying that he can't play a full strength team for the European game and the game against us as his players will be tired.

Did anyone see the news the other day that Frank Lampard has been given a publishing deal to write children’s books? He reckons some of the characters will be “loosely based” on real footballers he has played with. I’m not convinced anyone at Chelsea is appropriate material for an under-10 audience. It’s be all “One day, Racist John picked up the ball and kicked it to Ashley Love-Rat who sprinted forward and crossed to Nando, the Spanish boy who couldn’t hit his own c0ck with a slipper. The crowd booed and made monkey gestures. Nando missed. The crowd booed some more and called all the Chelsea players ‘cants’. The end.”
I dunno, but I’m not sure I’m buying it for my little ‘uns.

On the actual story, Punch needs to be signed up for sure and he should stay as I get the feeling he's definitely the type of player that needs to be valued.
He has that here and I don't think he would get that necessarily elsewhere.

Yes and any mention of cowardly 'headhunters' will not go down well...

..the assumption will be that they are a faraway native tribe not a London bullyboy one..

Incidents such as glassing a 14 year old in Oxford street by a group of 45 year olds who then wanted police protection from some serious Saints old boys will not make bedtime reading either..

What an amazing and incredibly thought provoking post!!

I complete echo these sentiments. I mean, His goal against Chelsea was shocking!! His partnership and solid bond With Clyne is an absolute sham and that’s not to mention the way he broke City’s play to grab the opener.

Can’t wait for him to leave!!! :-)

One swallow does'nt make a summer, although it is known to make a lot of men happy...

...anyway, JP will need to have a couple of good seasons under his belt to merit any other team taking what many would still consider a temperamental gamble.

.... taking said gamble would result in a substantially lower price than his talent alone would deserve....

...it is in the interests of all concerned that he therefore signs a new contract.

Deserves a new deal, but would he slip back to the 'old' Puncheon if he's got a guaranteed deal? Sign him year by year, or even 6 monthly contracts, with extensions after so many appearances (barring injuries)

There is no doubt in my mind that Punch will be offered a new contract. The club has done a great job with him from playing hard ball to accepting him back in and allowing him to play again. Nigel should take a lot of the credit for this. To be fair to Punch he knew he had the ability and wanted to prove himself in the top division playing regularly. Saints are giving him this and it has been win win for both parties.

No other club has been linked with him and I'm sure NC is doing all his dealings with contracts behind the scenes in the normal fashion. We should be used to this by now. Whatever is in the best interests of the club will be supported by Cortese. End of.

Standard contract terms just need to incorporate a behaviour/disrepute clause re wage payments...then we all should be happy.

We must sign Puncheon up soon as I could see a team like Sunderland cashing in for him.
We also need to extend Boruc's contract for a further year.
We could extend Chaplow's contract, depending on whether we keep Hammond or not when he returns from Brighton.
Ben Reeves could sign for another year and then go on loan for game time as long as we pay none of his wages.
The rest should go, which is sad but also good as it means a new side can come in.

Strikes me that the club will do everything they can to keep Punch if it is sensible to do that.

Based on his past attitude though I can only think winding his contract down suits him because he can demand out of proportion wages from any interested clubs.

We'll see. Would like to think he'll stay in the same way Walcott did at Arsenal. Can't blame him for waiting to see who might come in for him, but it's questionable whether he'd get a better footballing option than Saints, assuming we stay up.

Key thing is, we will only pay him what he's worth, so as long as he's sensible about it. If he wants silly money, let him go.

Must say though, if Ramirez is on a lot more than him wouldn't you be demanding a bit of parity?

I think Punch is one of those players who lifts the spirits of those around him. We need him.
It’s an intriguing one, Punch has definitely come on this season to stand up and be counted.
However, are their better options out there? perhaps.
We have seen anyone is replaceable here if we believe the model is to fast track the project to the next level.
I say sign him up, though I would not argue if he was replaced next season by someone with more talent, say Bale.
I'll tell you what's intriguing, Mush on the Beach I distinctly remember you being a Manchester United fan many years ago. If I'm wrong and you have never been a Man U fan please feel free to correct me!
Blimey, I'll tell you what's intriguing 1885.
You are coming across as some confused little stalker who has the wrong bunny in his sights.
Try posting your thoughts about footy on here, that’s the general idea.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
You didn't answer my question! Don't get upset I'll drop it. As for the stalking stuff I asked you a simple question, which for whatever reason you don't want to answer. I was just curious because I knew someone who for many years was a Man Utd fan who took the p out of the Saints and was was now posting on a Saints thread. And a few weeks ago I remember you being on my case, was that stalking?
OK. fare enough, though I thought I had already answered your question.
No you obviously don’t know me as I am proud Southampton born and bred and red and white Saints to the core.
As it goes, the reason I asked you previously to wind your neck in was because I thought you were coming across unnecessarily goading to good Saints posters on here like Mack Chinnon.
I thought you may be a wind up skunt, but I’d like to believe you took my point on board, we share the same team and we’ll draw a line through it.

However, are their better options out there? perhaps. We have seen anyone is replaceable here if we believe the model is to fast track the project to the next level.

You are coming across as some confused little stalker who has the wrong bunny in his sights. Try posting your thoughts about footy on here, that’s the general idea. Enjoy the rest of your day.[/p][/quote]You didn't answer my question! Don't get upset I'll drop it. As for the stalking stuff I asked you a simple question, which for whatever reason you don't want to answer. I was just curious because I knew someone who for many years was a Man Utd fan who took the p out of the Saints and was was now posting on a Saints thread. And a few weeks ago I remember you being on my case, was that stalking?[/p][/quote]OK. fare enough, though I thought I had already answered your question. No you obviously don’t know me as I am proud Southampton born and bred and red and white Saints to the core. As it goes, the reason I asked you previously to wind your neck in was because I thought you were coming across unnecessarily goading to good Saints posters on here like Mack Chinnon. I thought you may be a wind up skunt, but I’d like to believe you took my point on board, we share the same team and we’ll draw a line through it.[/p][/quote]Very nicely put mush!

For all we know, Puncheon may well have been offered a new deal.

Gordon Simpson, or Homer as I'm sure you're known outside of this pathetic local rag, why do you persist in trying to unsettle the playing staff of Southampton FC? Maybe if you tried investigating before writing articles you would be welcomed at St Mary's Stadium!

And why mention RL and MS in this article as they are still under contract until 2014? Time to face the facts - no-one at Saints wants to talk to you! Get over it and prove that you deserve to be welcomed back by the club.
totally agree with deadly666
maybe young simpson writes for the skunts at the news as well just as negative
why not listen to our chairman and write something positive
... DE kept banging on about NA's rumoured departure and this upset many. Perhaps the DE writes what we don't want to hear; this doesn't mean unsettling things aren't true.

Also, I wonder how seriously Saints staff take the back page of this local red top? I'm sure NC does not give a toss about it.

Nevertheless beyond selling papers I would be keen to learn what the Echo's journalistic aim is.

Why is there so much slagging off of the Echo? If the local Paper The Echo didn't report on the only club in the Premiership that would be wrong, all those who support there local teams want to know all the news of there Teams, if Southampton FC have banned the Echo they need to kiss and make up for the sake of those who care about Southampton FC and thats thousands, the Echo Reporters job cannot be easy if they have to collect information from "Insiders" a Reporter prefers to get the info direct for positive and accurate news.

WE ARE GONNA ******* WIN NO ISSUE and everyone knows Twitchy is in for a major amount of stick.

LOOKING FORWARD TO READING AWAY WITH THE SAINTS FANS ON THE TRAIN after smashing Norwich.

The way I see it is that JP did not really want to play for saints when we were not in the prem but now we are he is up for it so foregive and forget.Cannot believe the transformation in the whole team since M P took over.4 games gone,what a difference,(points wise maybe not)but the attitude of the team seems totally different and more positive. Please let it continue

its been said several times lately by different managers that this time of year is not contract talking time as minds are collectively on winning games. The relevant players are given a time when the matter will be sorted.. and yet all get on with their jobs. The rest is true and relevant but is spin design to get us to flap between games.

Deadly666 The Echo are not stirring, Puncheons contract runs out at the end of the season, it's also in the Daily Mirror and it's facts, Puncheon won't leave he loves it at Southampton, remember Saints are not safe yet, they need 15 points at least for certain survival, all the Players in the first Team will not want to play 2nd tier next season and several Players contracts are close to renewal, it's facts and several Prem Clubs will want Saints Players, anyone of them have proved they can cut it but if Saints survive the best Players will still be Saints Players next season
