RUMOUR MILL, July 16 - Saints and Stoke have bids turned down for Norwich winger

Daily Echo: Nathan Redmond scores Norwich's winner against Saints last August. Nathan Redmond scores Norwich's winner against Saints last August.

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.

Although I am yet to panic, one is getting a little nervous about transfers. There seems to be a lot of good players at reasonable prices who have already been snapped up. I would like to get our deals done before the mad rush. IMHO here are my transfers dealing based on the jungle drum.

Your thoughts on 'good' players leaves a lot to be desired.

Whilst I tend to agree up to a point regarding bringing players in,to be fair it would be futile to buy players to appease the supporters without Ronko assessing the players he already has at his disposal.
I think he will move into the market when he has fully analised all the players from top to bottom,Duvic and Pelle being the exceptions as replacements for the defectors.

I think Redmond would be a good buy but lets offer Norwich a proper fee....we can't complain about other clubs taking us for a ride if we only do the same back. Whilst we are at Norwich how about John Ruddy in goal too? .....good to see us win and get a game under the belt last night. I see a lot of people are glad to see Billy Sharp back, however although I will always have a lot of time for him and his goals to get us out of championship I really am not sure he is premiership class and is the man who is going to fire in 20 goals a season, also thought from the highlights that Mayuka looked poor in terms of his shooting so think another striker still very much a priority. Still plenty to be positive about, Targett, McQueen, Chambers, Clyne, JWP, Gallagher...we still have a very talented young english core.....looking forward to the start of the season already!

We are still a top quality LB short of where we were before the departures.
Everyone knows that we needed FOUR top quality additions to add for this season if we have ambitions to move on up.
The existing coaching staff and Les Reed know this and the positions that were required, being GK, CB, Winger and Striker. These are still the requirements and they MUST be better players than what we have, please don't waste money on players just for Cover.
RonKo will have learnt this already so he only needs to approve those he wants.
Is Redmond or Sinclair better than McQueen or Isgrove ?, probably Yes at the moment, both are young and English with Prem experience, so are worth an offer. Redmond looked good to me last season so £3m to register an interest followed by a serious bid of £5 to £6m would be about right.

Good to here we are showing our interest, FIVE players still needed in asap so get on with it Les no time off for you for a while !

Too right - well done to the board for replacing Poch and his three amigos, Lallana and SRL with quality but there is still a way to go before the squad is improved enough to break into the top six.
The shopping list is unchanged from the end of last season (CB to partner Lovren - maybe two CBs now that Lovren's attitude is suspect, a GK to cover for Boruc, and another fast striker) and we still need a LB to replace Shaw.
If these players don't arrive before the end of August I think we will be doing well to equal last season's final position.

Unfortunately I am not sure that Billy Sharp is a Striker option, or that Emanual Mayuka has improved any. Gallagher is still a season away so with J-Rod not back until at least January we only have Pelle up front.
A top Quality who is better than Pelle is a top priority, even if it is a season long loan player like Lukaku.

James Ward Prowse must up his game this season as must Chambers & Cline. I am not sure any other young players are quite ready to fill the position just but hopefully will the following season.
Matty Targett may do but as yet untried so better he competes for a place with a new first choice LB that we need to replace Luke with.

FIVE first choice players still to bring in if we are to improve on last season. GK, LB, CB, WINGER ans STRIKER to get in asap and not waste the money for cover ! We CAN afford them so get on with it Les !

This worries me too. If I remember correctly Les Reed told us that 100m would be available for new players and this was BEFORE we had completed the sales of Allana and Shaw.

You are living in cloud cuckoo land re: £200m. We owe £22m in back payments for last season's transfers so that has to come out of the budget, along with £30m overspend on the training facilities. So that's £52m gone already. I bet we don't spend more than £10m more in total. When have you EVER known money out to equal money in with Saints?

I don't think les Reed ever said we had £100 million to spend. Any deals will have to be structured because you can bet you life we didn't get all the money up from Man U and Liverpool. if we spend another £20 million I will be surprised. However, if we want to carry on and develop the youngsters then we need to leave space for them to have a chance to break into the first team squad. If we keep Spiderman and Dejan then 2 or 3 more quality additions will I think be it for the summer. The money we still owe on Gaston and Osvaldo would have been in the budget. The training ground was £15 million over budget( it cost £30 million), but again you would expect that to be financed over a period of time.

Saints keep going on about our great scouting network, I guess they are referring to the scouts for the 7 and 8 year olds?

Osvaldo, Gaston, Forren, Mayuka, Yoshida, Tadinari, Sharp, Gazaniga.

Got to be looking at the best part of £50m for that lot, not saying that they don't do their job just saying that their hit rate is not that great to warrant banging on about it all the time.

Anyone able to take an educated accurate 'guesstimate' at what Saints transfer budget actually is?

This figure would need to take account of whether monies owed from previous transfers, the cost of the Staplewood ground improvements, percentage owed to Bournemouth from Lallana's fee were paid off prior to any transfer spending. Did Saints actually get the full cash amount up front for Lambert, Lallana and Shaw?

The press has speculated that Katharina Liebherr is going to make an additional £30 million available for transfers. Les Reed has allegedly stated that the proceeds from any player sales, would be re-invested in the squad.

Probably need to add in a fee for Osvaldo, although I can't see Saints getting back the £14 + million they paid for him.

So how much is that player investment likely to be, we wait and see.

Think Redmond would be a great addition. watched him a few times last season and for England U21's he was exceptional.

Those saying 'we can do better' i beg to differ not for the money we would pay. He is fast and skillful, puts defenders under pressure and can deliver. Also we can do better how? who?

He will become a better player with us and will be surrounded by players and coaches a level up from Norwich.

Just offer a decent price and get him tied down. Would love to see him in a saints shirt next season. (by the way Les, Danny Ings as well please)

Whilst I tend to agree up to a point regarding bringing players in,to be fair it would be futile to buy players to appease the supporters without Ronko assessing the players he already has at his disposal.
I think he will move into the market when he has fully analised all the players from top to bottom,Duvic and Pelle being the exceptions as replacements for the defectors.
I usually let spelling errors slide, unfortunately I hope for the sake of our players you would like them to be ANALYSED first rather than what you suggested there is a MASSIVE difference.
