SAINTS and their Premier League rivals Stoke City are reported to have had £3m bids for Norwich winger Nathan Redmond turned down.

The 20-year-old England U21 international cost the Canaries around £3.2m when they signed him from Birmingham last summer.

He went on to score once in 34 Premier League appearance last season - with his only goal the winner when Norwich beat Saints at Carrow Road last August.

One of Redmond's teammates, Leroy Fer, who came through the youth ranks at Ronald Koeman's former club, Feyenoord, is said to be a target for QPR.
