Wanyama deal will take spending past £50m

Daily Echo: Victor Wanyama Victor Wanyama

Saints will take their spending on transfer fees since returning to the Premier League past the £50m mark if they sign Celtic’s Victor Wanyama.

The midfielder is expected to finalise his protracted move from the Scottish champions any time now, for a fee of about £12m.

Talks with Wanyama and his representatives had initially broken down when personal terms were discussed, but the deal was dramatically resurrected last week.

Kenyan international Wanyama has been away with Celtic on their pre-season tour of Germany, but was pulled out of a friendly match on Tuesday as discussions with Saints advanced.

He is now expected to conclude the remaining formalities of his move, possibly before Saints depart for their own training camp at the end of the week.

The official announcement of the transfer was somewhat pre-empted yesterday by Kenyan Football Federation president Sam Nyamweya, who issued a statement congratulating Wanyama on “making history” by joining Saints.

“As a federation we are extremely thrilled with this move by Victor, who has continued to be Kenya’s football ambassador due to his exploits on the pitch,” he said.

The sum paid for Wanyama will come close to matching the record amount that Saints shelled out to capture Gastón Ramírez from Bologna last summer.

It will also represent the biggest transfer deal in Scottish football history.

As well as that, it will nudge Saints’ spending for the summer over the £20m mark, after the signing of defender Dejan Lovren from Lyon in a deal worth up to £8.6m, and their total since winning promotion back to the Premier League beyond £50m.

And that stunning figure could rise to around the £70m mark if Saints somehow managed to bring in Brazilian striker Leandro Damião, who is on their radar this summer.

Last season, Saints spent approximately £35m in transfer fees, with Ramírez topping the list at £12m.

The available funds are not likely to run out after Wanyama, either.

Saints have been linked with a number of other high-profile transfers and there is a chance they could smash their own transfer record again this summer.

The club’s manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has admitted that Brazil international striker Damião is one they are monitoring.

The Internacional star was the subject of a £15.5m bid from Napoli this week, which was immediately rejected.

The Brazilian club have stated previously that they will not consider anything less than £21.5m for the player.

Saints are also said to have made a £17m bid for Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo, who worked with Pochettino at Espanyol.

It has been reported this week in Italy that directors at the Serie A club were overheard saying they wanted to pressure the 27-year-old into accepting the Saints deal, after one of them failed to properly hang up following a call from a journalist.

Osvaldo is previously said to have rejected the idea of a move to Saints.

just seen Sunderland's transfer activity this summer... whatever your thoughts on the Wanyama/Moore extorsion attempt, we are in a much better place then them. Its going to be interesting to see how Di Canio manages to put that lot together as a team....

well one thing is for sure, with a player like Wanyama, 442 is pretty much out the window. 451 it is then.... (which is good imo) not that it really matters that much, as long as the 1,2,4 or 5 find the net !!

The continued re-hashing of the same (not) news is becoming a bit tiresome but I suppose it keeps some of the posters here off the streets where they might otherwise be mugging old ladies ... !

However we're still missing the striker(s) we desperately need - all this defensive and creative strengthening will be largely wasted if we can't convert more opportunities in front of goal.

I just hope that one or two rabbits are about to be pulled out of the hat, if not it could still be a long, hard season. Still, at least we won't ship so many at the start as we did last season.

I think the concencus of opinion is thatwe needed competition and we looked light at the back, in the middle and up front for a challenge on the top half of the Premiership.
Reality is we have strengthened at the back. Jose was out for a large portion of the campaign and although I had my doubts sem to adapt well to the big challenge against world class strikers. It took a while but he sorted it out then got injured. Jury out on Forren and know nothing about the Lovren. So back four sorted? Cork can cover for Clyne on the right (so can Yoshida) and isn't Forren left sided and played at left back?
Midfield - we already had the best midfieldeer in the Premiership with Schneiderlin - but we lacked something? Wanyama may be the key to unlock other hidden talents of the quartet.
Not wanting to knock Lambo or JayRod - but they aren't clinical are they? If we converted half of the chances we create we would already be a top 10 side. Towards the ned of last season we struggled to get close to goal. Perhaps we weren't so cavalier under MoPo?
Still think we need a clinical finisher - perhaps JayRod can sharpen up and become that man?
How exciting is it at the monent? A very young squad, a young starting eleven, and the youth coming through!
Reminds me of a song..."

indeed, the Kenyan is a "box-to-box" player ( as they say, that was not mean't to suggest he likes to party ) , and players like him can unlock talent around them. His %tackle-rate is certainly impressive in the pub league he has been playing in and he can develop the play higher up the pitch.... I do rate the lad, just wish we were not getting shafted for the stupid price, but I guess a million here or there is no big deal anymore, even if a large slice of it dissappears into Moore's pocket for doing absolutely naff-all....

Couldn't disagree more. The Guardian is the only national newspaper in this country that isn't completely shyte.
a large proportion of the population seem to believe that if all newspapers except the guardian were banned then the UK's problems would simply vanish.

On "Guardian Island" everything would be wonderful. People would sit about drinking an organic merlot while bemoaning the plight of the poor in Portugal.

I wonder what "Echo Island" would be like? There would be a lot of cyclists being involved in accidents, that's for sure.

you are joking ? false photos of "chid war victims", anti semitic stance on just about everything , climate change lies , midleading information on government policies, defending the BBC over Saville,,,etc etc the list is endless.

I think you're pretty close but three things need to be considered.

1. As you say, maybe (Captain) Spiderman will play ahead of the other two - on occasions.
2. We have options. The pressing game is tiring, I expect to see quite a bit of rotation, so we could see any two of those three and/or JWP playing in front of the back 4.
3. The transfer window is still open, so it's a bit early to know who would be first on the team sheet.

I just hope that one or two rabbits are about to be pulled out of the hat, if not it could still be a long, hard season. Still, at least we won't ship so many at the start as we did last season.

£50 million sounds a lot, but some was spent last season. Together with all the extra money from SKY this season it doesn't seem too excessive. If we are going for a striker as well we could get up to £60-70 million no problem. Who'd have thought that acouple of years back. Bring it on!.

The problems were caused by some bad prats flying planes into the world trade centre which then made the financial sector so worried about an economic depression that they unleashed billions of dollars into the market to falsely inflate the economy, only a lot of this money was given to poor people to enable them to get mortgages they couldn't afford and, inevitably, a few years down the line when these debts went toxic a global shitstorm followed. The world is run by people trying to control completely uncontrollable elements and economic collapses are inevitable. Sadly, in this country we have a one-party system trading under three different names, all representing unfettered free market neoliberalism, so this isn't going to change any time soon.

It is alright paying big money but we need the players to perform to that level. Which neither of our big transfers did last season.
Though I accept we bought for the future and like many of our players they needed to adapt. Well this season is the future and now they need to perform.
it is okay spending big money but the players concerned need to step up to the mark and prove they are worth it, not end up as bit part players like last season.
With additional signings we may make the top 10.
Yet being realistic everyone around us has strengthened their squads and some quite significantly. A lot of other clubs will be expecting a top ten finish as well.
I doubt anyone will argue Beneteke and Michu were the best additions to the premier last season. Proving that spending big dosh doesn't always mean you get the better player just the more expensive.
Just the same as beginning of last season we have a lot of people talking as though we only have to turn up to walk into Europe, it is just not that easy.
What I do believe is if we can get a good striker, if nothing else we can make other teams sweat and the journey of next season should be as Vinny Jones would say 'emotional.'

Proving that spending big dosh doesn't always mean you get the better player just the more expensive. Just the same as beginning of last season we have a lot of people talking as though we only have to turn up to walk into Europe, it is just not that easy. What I do believe is if we can get a good striker, if nothing else we can make other teams sweat and the journey of next season should be as Vinny Jones would say 'emotional.' COYR milton road

I will be gutted if he signs tomorrow, I would like this story to rattle on for at least another week.
Saints have made so many signings with 4 weeks of pre season left it's almost overwhelming.

I reackon Saints will get "shafted" on the price of players for a couple of seasons.

Its a bit like the Osvaldo rumour.

We need to put pressure on the clubs to make the deal happen, because while our ambition is big Saints are not a big pull for top players.

Basically we need to get the ball rolling. If we continue to have an impressive seasons players/agents wil gradually make the deals happen

2) If I want to see the best player Celtic has ever had, I'll need to follow the Saints.

3) I have, for too long, been blinded by my own (and the common) Scottish bias.

Scottish football MUST be as bad as you lot claim, we couldn't even beat Greuther Furth without VW.
We go to Germany and play a team none of us had heard of and lose, whilst you guys will line up against Shalke 04.
It speaks volumes about how Europe see you as a bigger team, but only we think we're big.

Something in my mind is comparing this spending spree with our ex rivals and QPR.
I know that circumstances are completely different, but being a Saints fan for so many years, it just doesn't feel right.
I guess times have changed and i have to think that the club is being run within it's means and we won't end up in financial trouble.
Now go sign a world class striker!!

And then they go out and vote conservative to make sure our problems never disappear.
Problems caused by Labour!

Be it Labour, Liberal or The Conservatives, the fact still remains that the are all pretty ghastly individuals.
You can't beat a good bit of hang em and flog em Daily Mail for me. Only French drivers are as good as The Mail at bringing out in me my natural hunter-gatherer kill everything instincts.

If I had my way, all foreigners would be forced to be foreign and everything English (or British when, say, a Scot wins Wimbledon) would be best at everything.

If I was in charge, first thing I'd do is ban France for allowing so many French people to live here. It spoils it for the rest of us ...... um ....... foreigners who also have to live here.

Sensible policies for a happier Europe!
Whilst all the publications mentioned can be extremely interesting depending where on the political spectrum you stand, I find that for accuracy, investigative prowess and in depth analysis into the British pscyhe you just can't beat Take a Break.

Problems caused by Labour!

Be it Labour, Liberal or The Conservatives, the fact still remains that the are all pretty ghastly individuals.
You can't beat a good bit of hang em and flog em Daily Mail for me. Only French drivers are as good as The Mail at bringing out in me my natural hunter-gatherer kill everything instincts.

If I had my way, all foreigners would be forced to be foreign and everything English (or British when, say, a Scot wins Wimbledon) would be best at everything.

If I was in charge, first thing I'd do is ban France for allowing so many French people to live here. It spoils it for the rest of us ...... um ....... foreigners who also have to live here.

Sensible policies for a happier Europe!

Now go sign a world class striker!!
Recent dumb spending sprees that spring to my mind include Sunderland under Steve Bruce, Liverpool under Dalglish and QPR under Mark Hughes. Mackems and QPR wasted all their money on over the hill crocks with prem experience, whereas Dalglish /Damien Comolli played a poor game of moneyball.
I’d like to think that not only are we spending within our means, but the re-sell value of the calibre of the young players we are signing if need be would have a tidy profit eventuate.

Nothing dumb about the skunt’s spending spree in my mind, look where it got them.

I think Saints are fine from that point of view. Fulham are for sale at around 200 million. If they are worth that how much are Saints worth now, with a modern and bigger ground and second to none training facilities?
Given that our owners are not likely to go bankrupt, I think NC and they know exactly what they are doing.

not at all. if english was your first language you would have read my previous properly.

a large proportion of the population seem to believe that if all newspapers except the guardian were banned then the UK's problems would simply vanish.

Problems caused by Labour!

Be it Labour, Liberal or The Conservatives, the fact still remains that the are all pretty ghastly individuals.
You can't beat a good bit of hang em and flog em Daily Mail for me. Only French drivers are as good as The Mail at bringing out in me my natural hunter-gatherer kill everything instincts.

If I had my way, all foreigners would be forced to be foreign and everything English (or British when, say, a Scot wins Wimbledon) would be best at everything.

If I was in charge, first thing I'd do is ban France for allowing so many French people to live here. It spoils it for the rest of us ...... um ....... foreigners who also have to live here.

Sensible policies for a happier Europe!
i wonder how the Gaurdian is covering the fact that UK intends to keep Faslane as sovereign territory ( a la cyrus bases ) for Our Subs should the Jocks commit economic suicide and leave civilisation.... probably using the word "imperial" a lot ... they like that.... Oh and french drivers are splendid compared to Portugese..
Why don't you read it and find out?
My wife's Portuguese and she agrees with you. I don't! At least Portuguese drivers stop when you're on a zebra crossing. However, from what others tell me, statistically, the average Portuguese driver dies younger than the average French driver, so I could be wrong. Either way, get those bl00dy foreigners out of here!

(Oh, that's me!)

Has he signed yet?

I guess we'll have to wait longer than the cricketers will have to wait for the last Aussie wicket.

Anyway, I'm off to the airport - in London all weekend. Anyone else off to Richmond to see Hants thrash the Lords boys on Sunday?

Be it Labour, Liberal or The Conservatives, the fact still remains that the are all pretty ghastly individuals.[/p][/quote]You can't beat a good bit of hang em and flog em Daily Mail for me. Only French drivers are as good as The Mail at bringing out in me my natural hunter-gatherer kill everything instincts. If I had my way, all foreigners would be forced to be foreign and everything English (or British when, say, a Scot wins Wimbledon) would be best at everything. If I was in charge, first thing I'd do is ban France for allowing so many French people to live here. It spoils it for the rest of us ...... um ....... foreigners who also have to live here. Sensible policies for a happier Europe![/p][/quote]i wonder how the Gaurdian is covering the fact that UK intends to keep Faslane as sovereign territory ( a la cyrus bases ) for Our Subs should the Jocks commit economic suicide and leave civilisation.... probably using the word "imperial" a lot ... they like that.... Oh and french drivers are splendid compared to Portugese..[/p][/quote]Why don't you read it and find out?[/p][/quote]My wife's Portuguese and she agrees with you. I don't! At least Portuguese drivers stop when you're on a zebra crossing. However, from what others tell me, statistically, the average Portuguese driver dies younger than the average French driver, so I could be wrong. Either way, get those bl00dy foreigners out of here! (Oh, that's me!) Has he signed yet? I guess we'll have to wait longer than the cricketers will have to wait for the last Aussie wicket. Anyway, I'm off to the airport - in London all weekend. Anyone else off to Richmond to see Hants thrash the Lords boys on Sunday? Strasbourg Saint

However we're still missing the striker(s) we desperately need - all this defensive and creative strengthening will be largely wasted if we can't convert more opportunities in front of goal.

I just hope that one or two rabbits are about to be pulled out of the hat, if not it could still be a long, hard season. Still, at least we won't ship so many at the start as we did last season.
Imagine what it's like for us then!
Not only are we losing the greatest player we ever had, to the most up and coming squad in European football, but every Media oulet keeps rubbing it in our faces 24 hours a day!
Sad times for the Bhoys.
wow thanks for the compliment , yes it is sad for celtic but think of how much neil will have the guy is very good at picking out bargains from around europe

The Guardian is the only national newspaper in this country that isn't completely shyte.[/p][/quote]you are joking ? false photos of "chid war victims", anti semitic stance on just about everything , climate change lies , midleading information on government policies, defending the BBC over Saville,,,etc etc the list is endless. Only fools believe what UK newspapers print. The gaurdian is no different. Worse really because it pretends to be above board. At least the tabloids admit they are full of cr@p.[/p][/quote]what government policies.this rag tag and knobtail government have no policies except for shafting the poor.BRING ON THE RED REVOLUTION.[/p][/quote]the Gaurdian is the rag for you then if you believe all that cr@p. Labour shafted the poor by bancrupting the country... but you don't blame them because its not their fault the money trees they planted never sprouted. The "revolution" is called the "General election" , and you will find another hung parliament next time as well.[/p][/quote]THE ROT SET IN WITH THATCHER.THE BANKS BANKRUPTED THIS COUNTRY JUST LIKE CROOKED FOREIGN FOOTBALL CLUB OWNERS ARE BANKRUPTING OUR NATIONAL GAME. BY THE WAY THE GUARDIAN IS FOR LIBERAL WIMPS I GAVE UP READING PAPERS WHEN OZ WENT TO THE WALL. AS FOR A HUNG PARLIAMENT THAT'S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR DEMOCRACY.[/p][/quote]Stop blaming and excusing. They are all idiots! Once you understand this and start holding them to account, we may all have a future. That's it from me as far as politics is concerned as I am pasionately political and this is the wrong place!

We would a top striker next but must not upset the balance of the team. Very interested in how MP will line up 433 or 42121..... Can see Spiderman playing more forward this season. Assuming VW signs here my starters for 17 Aug

Boruc
Clyne Lovern Forren Shaw
Wanyama Cork
Spider (capt)
Gaston Jay
Rickie

Davis Yos Fox JWP Adam Punch Makuka

Your thoughts COYR
I don't think we'll be playing Forren, for obvious reasons. A new CB could be on his way soon, as could Banega and Damiao or some other striker. But I do believe Adam could struggle to make the team, as could JayRod unless he starts hitting the back of the net again. After 3 goals in 3 matches he kinda lost his touch in the last games of the season.
