Saints confirm Wanyama signing

Daily Echo: Saints confirm Wanyama signing Saints confirm Wanyama signing

Saints have completed the £12m signing of Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The 22-year-old Kenyan international joins the club on a four-year contract.

The fee for Wanyama makes his move the biggest transfer in Scottish football history.

It is also similar to the amount Saints paid to Bologna last summer for Gastón Ramírez, which was a club record.

Wanyama will become the first Kenyan player to feature in the Premier League.

With his signing completed, he is now set to travel with the rest of the first-team squad on their pre-season tour to Spain and Austria.

The transfer, which turned into a protracted and public saga, has taken some time to conclude.

After agreeing a fee with Celtic earlier this summer, talks broke down when personal terms were being discussed.

However, the move was resurrected last week and Saints were able to reach a suitable deal with his representatives.

Wanyama told the club's website: "I'm very grateful to be here and I'm looking forward to playing in the Premier League.

"I am happy to be a part of Southampton's squad. It means a lot because because it has been my dream to play in the Premier League and now I am here."

Earlier in the day, he was quoted in the Kenyan media as saying: “I wish to thank everyone who has made this deal happen.

“Obviously, there are many clubs that have enquired about my services over the past season, but it’s Southampton who kept on trying to acquire my services, and that trust is very important.

“I am looking forward to going there and giving my best both for the team and for myself as a player.”

Wanyama moved to Celtic two years ago for £900,000 from Belgian side Beerschot AC, where he made his breakthrough as a professional.

Since joining the Glasgow giants he has made 91 appearances in two seasons, scoring 13 goals and winning two SPL titles, as well as the division’s young player of the year award.

Wanyama has also been capped 25 times for Kenya and is now captain of his country.

The president of the Football Kenya Federation, Sam Nyamweya, last night congratulated the player on his transfer.

“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 in a statement that was somewhat premature at the time.

“It is through his sportsmanship and leadership qualities that led to the federation appointing him as the Stars captain.

“He has always honoured his call up to the Harambee Stars and every Kenyan should be proud of this move.

“Victor has been a role model to upcoming youngsters in the game and we encourage them to emulate him.”

Well as promised having said on the many other threads about Wanyama that I thought the Echo were talking rubbish about us signing him. But that I would say sorry if I was wrong and we did actually sign him I therefore am saying sorry. I was wrong.

I hope Wanyama settles in quickly and I now hope MP sorts out deals for the 2 further signings I feel we need. I also hope to see Danny Fox sold as I don't think he is anywhere near good enough for the premier league.

Think Cork is adequate cover at right back , he looked very composed when he played there last season and we always have Fox as cover for Luke, so I think a new left back is quite urgent then .

Ospers, can you create a full UN list? I'm almost at Baker Street, my stop. Thank the lord for free wifi on t'National Express.

Oh, and Halo, good work re Saintsman. Let's hope we hear good news from Dan K.
Craig Forrest never played for us. I've been in Canada now for over 40 years and don't recall one Canadian player for Saints. We would have to go way, way back if there was.

Anyone know? Here's a first stab:

Guernsey - well, I had to start there, didn't I?
England, Scotland, Wales, N. Ireland
Rep of Ireland
Portugal
Spain
France (and Alsace, of course)
Germany
Italy
Poland
Denmark
Norway
Sweden
Finland
Latvia
Russia (well, the USSR, at least)
Japan
Australia
Israel
Yugoslavia (not sure which bits for Golac or the Cat)
Croatia (almost)
Czech Rep?
Canada? (didn't Gerry Forrest keep goal a couple of times on loan?)
Costa Rica?
Jamaica?
Trinidad & Tobago?
(I always get the Caribbean countries muddled up)
Brazil
Uruguay
Argentina?
Morocco
Tunisia
Zimbabwe
Alidialand
Kenya

If that list is right (I doubt it, though) I make it, um ....... almost 40. We need an Albanian or an Andoran!
you have missed out the USA. kasey Keller played for us on loan against pompey a few years back, think we won 2-1, dexter blackstock scored and was our first win under wigley?
Has anybody mentioned Fred Kemp, born in Selerno (1965-70), our first Italian born player (I think?); or David Chadwick (1961-66), born Ootacamund, India?
By the way, our first player from Japan was Jack Dorkin, the first openly professional Saints, who was born on a ship sailing in or out of Yokohama.
.
If any of this iswrong, I blame Gary Chalk.

I can't deny that Celtic are indeed a massive club , problem is (and you know this) that they play in a poor league ........... Which team is it that you're playing in the CL qualifier ? .........

Expect to see JWP going out on loan now. Leaving MS, JC, VW and SD to fight it out for the midfield spots. I imagine away from home 3 out of the 4 will play but at home only 2 out of the 4? Gives us good options and flexibility. A new winger and maybe a right back next? Or do we think another striker is still a must? Exciting times to be a saints fan!!

Ospers, can you create a full UN list? I'm almost at Baker Street, my stop. Thank the lord for free wifi on t'National Express.

Oh, and Halo, good work re Saintsman. Let's hope we hear good news from Dan K.
Craig Forrest didn't but Jim Brennan did and he is..................

You're right, Brennan player 16 games, signed by George Burley. Oh Canada!

You can't blame Wanyama for wanting to test himself in the premier league he wants to play against world class players every week in great stadiums.
After all, at else is there for a Scot to do in Glasgow, especially when the only other big club (chuckle, chuckle) is no longer around?

Should share some of your fans with Hibbs!

Saints probably have a few more ST holders (probably closer to 20k) but Celtic are a "bigger" team in many ways and probably will always be..lets face it there are American's that will buy Celtic merchandise that probably don't even understand the offside rule because they are "Irish"

Hey what's a few million over the odds for a Prem side. We've got plenty thanks. Poopey need to be careful not to spend over the odds as well. Haven't heard too many rumours about all the big name signings queueing up to go there.

I think it a little strange that people have the conception we will play with two wide men in midfield. Since Ponch has been here we tended to play with one wide. Steve D. Morgan S, and Jack C. all tended to start. With only one out of Adam, Gaston and Jason starting. I don't really see that changing much other than VW probably taking the place of Steve D.
I also think overall Adam was better than Gaston last season and I think he started more games under Ponch.
Gaston is getting the rep as being a half a game player and he was awful in the confederation cup, where I don't think he completed a game. Got pulled off just after half time in one and 69 mins in another.

Improving a teams strongest area makes a team better. Simple.

If we play to our potential over the coarse of 38 games with the improvements we have seen plus two more of the same caliber would make us title challengers in my book...

If that's the case, could we be seeing 3 at the back, Cork and Spider centre mid, with Shaw and Clyne playing the wing roll? There are so many options we'll end up with Plan A, B, C and D, at this rate.

I was having a conversation about this recently; Although I didn't expect the exit of Forren, I thought we may have unfortunately lost Jos or Fonte.
We effectively have collected a few almost utility type defensive players with the ability to perform in several positions, potentially providing cover options:
Cork - CDM / RB / CB
Yoshida - CB / LB
Wanyama - CDM / CB

With the options available there and the fact that it looks as though Fox is being retained also, we effectively have options in these areas, even though there aren't large numbers.
This means we have quite a large amount available to improve in the goal scoring areas.
We also have a fair amount of time available, and if we perform well against the better sides we are facing on tour, that will draw the attention of those who have not yet been convinced to sign.

Also, since then, There are rumours resurfacing that Kouyate (Anderlecht) is considering a move to the Prem, to a "club from the middle of the Premiership".
And today, I've heard that Napoli have signed Jose Callejon from Real Madrid, which could mean that Damiao is still an option for us!

Admittedly, these are just my thoughts and opinions, but they all seem to "fit" into the emerging "saints puzzle".

never said it was a mad signing. I said he was not worth £12M and I don't think he is.

That is all still true in my opinion. That said, he is now a Saint and I will be 100% behind the lad and hope he turns to gold for us. Once he signed, the rest is history. Looking forward he could be great for us. we certainly lacked an edge in the last 5 games and he could deliver something new. The jury is still out whether he can take the step up needed and contain his temperament etc etc but I am an optimist ( despite how I may sound sometimes ). Celtic fans told me he had as many poor games as fantastic ones in the pub league but then again anyone with talent would get bored up there so allowances should be made for that. No slugger my friend, he signed, he is here, I am behind him.

We played some of the best football in the premier at times last season. We were though a bit light weight.
I don't see the middle changing much VW probably coming in for S.D. with Yosh and Loveren at the centre, going on the ideal of a young team.
I think a quality striker will be the difference between a top 10 finish and lower half finish. Which will allow us to rotate up front.

English players made 260 appearances for Saints last season the highest of any club in the premier league.

Yesterday (and many previous days) you said it was a mad signing ...... I take it you stand by that ?
never said it was a mad signing. I said he was not worth £12M and I don't think he is. I also thought we should not touch any signing with a barge pole that involved extorsionists like Extratime. i also said we don't need as a priority a player in his position. That is all still true in my opinion. That said, he is now a Saint and I will be 100% behind the lad and hope he turns to gold for us. Once he signed, the rest is history. Looking forward he could be great for us. we certainly lacked an edge in the last 5 games and he could deliver something new. The jury is still out whether he can take the step up needed and contain his temperament etc etc but I am an optimist ( despite how I may sound sometimes ). Celtic fans told me he had as many poor games as fantastic ones in the pub league but then again anyone with talent would get bored up there so allowances should be made for that. No slugger my friend, he signed, he is here, I am behind him.
Oh yes you did! I responded to your comment on VW on Tuesday "And so the arch Wanyama critic begins to back down as the liklihood of the proof of our own eyes increases ................." and lo and behold in couple of days you have done the full 180 degrees.
nope , nothing has changed in my opinion and half the celtic fans I have spoken too. To labotomised happy clappers he is the messiah, to those not not-in-the-know he is a risk and blows hot and cold and is not worth £12M. How you miss this as obvious is incredible really. How come only Cardiff going no further than £10M were our only competition ? I guess you were one of those total stumped from beginning to end of every episode of murder she wrote. No offence. I was not infavour of signing him, I still stand by my reservations but now he is here I am 100% behind him. Its not a difficult point to understand. Roll the clock back 48 hours and I would still not have signed him. but fans never agree 100% with all signings. happy clappers talk about "true fans". Well i count myself as one of those and once a guy is in a Saints shirt he gets my support. end of. Guly gets my support when he plays. Fox gets my support when he plays.

Bottom line is we won't know till we see him play. If he has bad games there are such things as subtitutions. A few of those and he will soon come to realise that in the Prem. you have to perform every week. Fortunately now our midfield has strength in depth so we shoudn't need to put up with any underperformance from them . Last season we didn't have anybody underperforming in that area of the pitch.

Relief that drawn out saga has finally come to an end - bit of a worry that we've paid quite a stash of money for someone that only Cardiff seriously thought was worth a punt, but I suppose you just have to believe MP/NC know what they're doing (although the Forren situation does raise just the odd question mark).

Hope the decks have now been cleared for a serious attempt at a new striker - this is the big one with regards to how we do next season (unless the Academy start producing some class strikers to go with the class defenders and midfielders!).

Any other Saints fans wondering why we weren't in the running for this Bony that Swansea just signed? At 12 million he's a lot cheaper than this Damiao we're said to be targeting, and with 31 goals in 30 games in Holland he's well worth a punt. How did he slip under every other team's radar?
Perhaps we missed the boat on that deal (looks good I admit) and to counteract we have brought big Vic in to scare the sh1t out of him!

Great player but we have Cork, Schneiderlin and Ward Prowse, Was this really a priority position when we have one right back and one and a half left backs? Personally I'm quite happy with Rodriguez and Lambert up front and we also have Mayuka, Sharp, Forte and Barnard on the books. Maybe Mayuka will come good in his second season, the rest look set for the chop but I would also like to see some cover for the wings

Where's Hooiveld today? Haven't seen any comments from him yet.
Wouldn't mind signing him back to Celtic if you guys don't mind, but not sure if he'd be happy with the step down in Quality!

I was thinking about the difference in levels whilst watching the cricket and realised that:
The top 6 teams in the EPL qualify for europe.
You guys play them Home and Away, normally giving you 12 matches against European teams as a minimum.

This means that Southampton play more european level games per season than Celtic do!

lets all try to ignore as best as possible. I know I have done my fair share of responding but I cant be bothered with some of these no it all childish foul mouthed idiots anymore.
Oh dear. My recent posts deleted and a stern note from Teacher. Looks like Saddo Santos sh!t his pants and ran crying to Mummy.

Guess what Muppets ? I am very proud that I have, by myself, out-fought, out-thought, out-manouvered, and made you all look all very silly.

This post will be deleted but I am happy in the knowledge that quite a few of you COULDN'T handle my banter. I am also still chuckling that you were conned by Hooiveld, a SAINTS fan !

The funny thing is, I probably wouldn't have posted much more anyway, as Vic has moved down...oops sorry...on.

Breath easier Muppets ? Hmmm, who knows.....

Bit harsh mate, it's nice and sunny up here too :-) But I agree with your sentiments, glad to see Wagamama (hope he doesn't mind the nickname!) wanted to come to Saints despite whatever tripe his agent was spouting.

Tonight's going to be interesting; it's England Ladies vs Spain Ladies at 7:30, and I shall be in Glasgow at the time. Wearing my Saints shirt. What's the chances of getting out alive?
You will have no problem at all.

I've responded too. Most of the visiting fans of other teams will be on the wind up, there's no other reason for them to be here and it can be very amusing, I've enjoyed it from time to time but when it descends into playground jibes that dominate the entire thread, I agree it's time to step back. Besides, some of them are just too 'easy-pickins' and it's just not a fair fight. Lol.

Oh dear, I have transgressed the unwritten law, can't promise that I won't respond in the future, but just ignore me if I do.
Easier said than done mate, did a little count up recently and you average 21% of the posts. Not saying your contribution isn't valued but sometimes less is more.

I think most of us have had problems responding to wums on here over time. its hard not to when you see some of the idiotic comments they make about our great cub. I don't mind the poopey wums who admit to being poopey fans, yes they are annoying but at least they are honest about who they support. the idiots who pretend to be saints fans fool no one on here, the use of happy clappers is a big giveaway.
lets all try to ignore as best as possible. I know I have done my fair share of responding but I cant be bothered with some of these no it all childish foul mouthed idiots anymore.
I've responded too. Most of the visiting fans of other teams will be on the wind up, there's no other reason for them to be here and it can be very amusing, I've enjoyed it from time to time but when it descends into playground jibes that dominate the entire thread, I agree it's time to step back. Besides, some of them are just too 'easy-pickins' and it's just not a fair fight. Lol.

You were a bit easy halo man but it must be hard for you to get the big picture when you have such a small screen.

Not so much as stepping back as running away. Much the same as the rest of the Muppets........
Like I said caballo, 'Easy-pickins'. This one is the easiest of the lot! You drop the bait and it swims on in, doesn't even realise when it's being played.

Remember this? .... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

zzzz. HAHAHAHA!

Gloria was the best wum we had on here, witty and the brains to match, backed it up with facts too, although she stretched them a bit.

This one is a tiddler so I'll throw him back.

Bye little fishy, you're free.

STID
Can't think of a witty reply eh ?

Don't let it trouble you. You have consistently scored at this level throughout.

I think if you looked up your family tree, most of them would still be living in it......

banter between fans is great, a bit of name calling in jest is fine and should be allowed. however foul mouthed rants at people for no reason other than to garner a response is, in my opinion, not within the rules of the site, and if you consistently disregard the rules then the echo should take action independent of anyone reporting them. this should be a bit of fun and a place for saints fans to discus the club with others all around the world without being subject to people like this.

Absolutely, it is rare that one poster on his own can ruin a thread, but sadly it is happening at the moment, and we are powerless to do anything about it, it seems.

the term "happy clappers" is mostly used by genuine saints fans on here who are rounded on by the usual suspects simply because they have dared to critisise something saints have done and do not think NC is pefection personified.

A lesson learned I think.

A week ago the mock jock monkey was just an insignificant WUM and no more than a mere pest. Then he got really annoyed when I made him jump and clap on demand like a dancing monkey. Harmless fun but he really didnt like that (just look back at how easy it was) and everybody recognised that ..but it didnt stop him ramping up his puerile and abusive output. So is this my fault? Maybe it is in part.

I doubt he will go away because in his little world he truly believes he has had some sort of victory. If he is an adult it is really quite sad, if it's a youngster it's even worse. I wonder where he will go next.? Sooner or later the dancing monkey will be jumping somewhere else .. life's like that ... but I hope one day you get better, whoever you are ...

There will no doubt be a bounce back on this .. but I really am bored with you now .. hopefully we will have more exciting news about something soon and then the quality contributors will return to outnumber and ignore the ignorant and deluded chimp.

He also said the only problem he has is his temperament but other than that he's a class act.

getting back to VW I was interested to know what a real celtic fan thought of him, so after looking through twitter I found an interview with Joseph Ruddy from Celtic Journal. its a very interesting assessment of our new signing. I wont reprint it all but when asked what his strengths and weaknesses are he gave this response,
"I know coming from a Celtic fan, I will ‘big’ him up, but I’m being as honest as I can here with all bias comments aside. Victor has many strengths and very little weaknesses. His strength and aggression are certainly standouts. Honestly, once you see him play you will be shocked at the strength he has. He is good in the air, has a good bit of pace about his and he is a very determined player. When he wants to play, he will play. He is good at marking and picking up his man. His work rate is second to none and he even has a bit of dribbling ability! I’d probably say his main strengths are his stamina and leadership.

We’d have been lost in some games without his leadership. He has shot power, which is good for long range efforts. His long throw ins are another strength. Weaknesses? I’m struggling here to name any, but every player has them. His concentration? Sometimes he looked miles away in games, as if he wasn’t interested. Other than that, I can’t honestly name anymore!"

so his weakness is that he can drift out of games. I have read that some question his disciplinary record so I did some research for this and found another great article on givemesport which in it stated,
"A breed we haven't seen much of since the retirement of players like Roy Keane and Dennis Wise. So now that you've seen the type of players that I've compared his style to, the words popping into your head are probably 'disciplinary record'.

Wanyama's disciplinary record, as you might expect, is far from unblemished. He has picked up 14 yellow cards and one red in all competitions this season. I would however, suggest that this record isn't bad. Particularly not for a defensive midfielder and for a man who puts in as many crunching tackles as he does.

In fact I would question any player, in his role, who did have an untarnished disciplinary record. Perhaps the English Premier League is a little less unforgiving on hard tackles than they are up north but all in all I think his temperament isn't any cause for concern"
to sum up I think we have just brought a gem of a player here but obviously time will tell!

My window cleaner is a nutcase celtic fan and he reckons he is great 50% of the time , good 25% and dire 25%. He reckons its his ego and he mentioned he remained on in games when he should have come off. That will not happen at Saints. I asked him what he thought he was worth and he said £12M is not ridiculous but he rated him sub £10M. I pinned him down as said "do we have a good signing knowing what you do about saints" he replied "yes 100%" I asked how many will he score in the prem and he replied "hardly any but that won't matter".....

"I know coming from a Celtic fan, I will ‘big’ him up, but I’m being as honest as I can here with all bias comments aside. Victor has many strengths and very little weaknesses.

We’d have been lost in some games without his leadership. He has shot power, which is good for long range efforts. His long throw ins are another strength. Weaknesses?

Do you know any details of the return trip.

If not in might be a good idea to wait until the annual returns before having a go at other posters posts.

If it was a mistake it is not a huge slice of the Premiership pie, and no team even Man U gets every transfer right

Just a thought.

You are probably a bit grumpy because mystery Matt probably from, Sholing stood you up the other evening. You know the one can't move very fast probably because he is a bit overweight and wheesy.

I am sure it was a right laugh regardless.

So, what do you know about the 33 million owed to the Liebherr trust and it being paid back over 4 years and where do you know it from?
Matty lives in the same place as that bill poster.most people know that,The pay back is on the BVI loan,what's of concern to me is the directors of that company,which you will not be able to find.As for giving names please don't play that game.I would in no way put a persons income at stake for the sake of seeming in the know.

My point was not where the famous Matty lives but that it was probably not the famous Matty you were meeting up with and you seem a bit grumpy and so natural conclusion.

There is no BVI charge registered against the holding company. Katarina loaned Saints 12 million (probably the BVI loan) and this has been converted into shares as of March.

I don't see what the issue is DW. Unless you have seen the latest accounts and know something different.

The thing that gets me about this BVI thing is that there is no evidence of it.

Adam Leitch reported on 6/10/12

"Saints fans are calling for transparency over a mystery financial document that has been lodged by the club at Companies House.

The document, on public view, is headed ‘particulars of a mortgage or charge’ and appears to suggest that the football club have agreed a substantial loan with a company from the tax haven of the British Virgin Islands called Vibrac Corporation."

There is no document showing any mortgages or charges. Source? Companies House:

Makes this BVI charge/mortgage look to me like a bit of a "lie" or a hoax which the DE made up or fell for. It would be good if the DE could clarify it's source because it the source does not appear to be Companies House as they claimed at the time.

For those who should be vigilant about the finances, Seedhouse in particular it is one thing blowing hot air and talking about it, it is another actually being bothered to look it up and question it.

It is great that the £12 million loan from Katharina has been converted to shares even though I don't understand why 1 share went to the Marcus Estate.

What has happened to the £33 million in equity owed to the Marcus Liebherr Estate. PAid off or converted to loan to paid off over 4 years?

Great stuff, sent shivers down my spine.

STID and lovin it!
i read that aswell good times coming
its good to know that we have a chairman who has money to spend but wont be dictated to by agents or players. he may have some faults but looking after the money isn't one of them. waiting to see whos next on the bus, is it still a bus? looks like a private plane on twitter but then the new team coach looks nice as well.
Looks after money?

£3.5m plus wages spent, sorry wasted on a player that didn't play for the 1st team!
Andy Carroll? Perspective is everything.
Just read the article and agree with you all.....impressive or what!

getting back to VW I was interested to know what a real celtic fan thought of him, so after looking through twitter I found an interview with Joseph Ruddy from Celtic Journal. its a very interesting assessment of our new signing. I wont reprint it all but when asked what his strengths and weaknesses are he gave this response,
"I know coming from a Celtic fan, I will ‘big’ him up, but I’m being as honest as I can here with all bias comments aside. Victor has many strengths and very little weaknesses. His strength and aggression are certainly standouts. Honestly, once you see him play you will be shocked at the strength he has. He is good in the air, has a good bit of pace about his and he is a very determined player. When he wants to play, he will play. He is good at marking and picking up his man. His work rate is second to none and he even has a bit of dribbling ability! I’d probably say his main strengths are his stamina and leadership.

We’d have been lost in some games without his leadership. He has shot power, which is good for long range efforts. His long throw ins are another strength. Weaknesses? I’m struggling here to name any, but every player has them. His concentration? Sometimes he looked miles away in games, as if he wasn’t interested. Other than that, I can’t honestly name anymore!"

so his weakness is that he can drift out of games. I have read that some question his disciplinary record so I did some research for this and found another great article on givemesport which in it stated,
"A breed we haven't seen much of since the retirement of players like Roy Keane and Dennis Wise. So now that you've seen the type of players that I've compared his style to, the words popping into your head are probably 'disciplinary record'.

Wanyama's disciplinary record, as you might expect, is far from unblemished. He has picked up 14 yellow cards and one red in all competitions this season. I would however, suggest that this record isn't bad. Particularly not for a defensive midfielder and for a man who puts in as many crunching tackles as he does.

In fact I would question any player, in his role, who did have an untarnished disciplinary record. Perhaps the English Premier League is a little less unforgiving on hard tackles than they are up north but all in all I think his temperament isn't any cause for concern"
to sum up I think we have just brought a gem of a player here but obviously time will tell!
My window cleaner is a nutcase celtic fan and he reckons he is great 50% of the time , good 25% and dire 25%. He reckons its his ego and he mentioned he remained on in games when he should have come off. That will not happen at Saints. I asked him what he thought he was worth and he said £12M is not ridiculous but he rated him sub £10M. I pinned him down as said "do we have a good signing knowing what you do about saints" he replied "yes 100%" I asked how many will he score in the prem and he replied "hardly any but that won't matter".....
You don't really need a source for those observations but it is still an interesting point of view.

Thanks Guru. Any chance of an opinion on the annual returns, from a business guru such as yourself?
