HARRY Redknapp is being linked with the Nice left back who has long been mentioned as Luke Shaw's replacement at St Mary's.

There has been speculation that Nice's Timothee Kolodziejczak has been lined up to replace Old Trafford-bound Shaw in a deal that would cost Saints about £6m.

But Redknapp's QPR are now reportedly trailing the 22-year-old French youth international, who is also on West Ham's radar and who once rejected a move to Manchester United.

Elsewhere, Sunderland are believed to be ready to offer Liverpool £10m for striker Fabio Borini.

The player, however, has been mentioned as a possible makeweight in any deal Saints strike with Liverpool for Adam Lallana.
