Saints linked with Townsend bid

Andros Townsend

Andros Townsend

First published in Sport

Saints have reportedly had a £10m bid rejected for Tottenham winger Andros Townsend.

The 23-year-old England international could find himself down the pecking order at White Hart Lane this season, but Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has praised him in recent weeks and hinted he wants to keep hold of him.

Saints are targeting the signing of a wideman before the close of the transfer window.

They have had an interest in Norwich’s Nathan Redmond, amongst others.

Sky Sports have suggested that Saints have made a move for Townsend that has been rebuffed by Spurs, but these have not been confirmed by either club.

Speaking of Townsend recently, Pochettino said: “Townsend is another player, he is in the squad.

“He is an important player, he is a player for the English national team.

“He missed the World Cup with injury. We need to recover a player like him because he has great potential and very good quality.”

Saints have already managed to prevent Tottenham from signing one of their players, Morgan Schneiderlin, despite heavy interest in him during this transfer window.

I think the board should make bids for every Spurs player, each bid at around the 25 quid level. The bid printed on top of a photo of Schneiderlin, in a Saints shirt, grinning.

Townsend is an excellent Player but IMO I thought that Southampton would avoid any Player who plays for Tottenham on a principle but perhaps Football Transfers have no boundaries, he would be a very useful addition to the Squad but I can't imagine he's on a lower Salary than what Southampton can offer and understandably he wouldn't accept a lower wage also he's still a young Player who could play in any of the top Clubs surely this is a rumour,Redmond at Norwich looks useful and he might be interested in coming to Southampton rather play in the Championship, after yesterdays game at Liverpool there cannot be many pieces of the jigsaw needed to complete the Squad, the Team played exceptionally well especially the second half and could of won, a draw would of been a fair result, I'm not sure if Morgan wants to be a Saints Player any more, he had a good game and was unlucky not to score but like Lovren his facial expression and body language were not endearing however that might change when Saints win a few in the next 6 games.

Townsend wouldn't be on massive wages. If we really want him we'll pay the money anyway. Osvaldo was on £70k a week and most of our first team players are on £30k to £50k a week so I don't think wages would be a problem at all.

We did fantastic yesterday, so close to getting a result. We are in for a very exciting season and if we can get someone like Townsend in or another tricky little winger - it's going to make things even more exciting.

Townsend is always injured, just like a former wide player for them. I don't think hes that good anyway, stop him from cutting inside and he becomes very ineffective. I would much rather we looked elsewhere, but if hes the player Ronnie wants then so be it.

Is that true about Osvaldos wages?

If it is perhaps that was one of the factors that unsettled the players and caused the exodus.

I agree. Cracking player IMO. If we could get him in and keep Spider (huge 'if', I grant you) then eighth should be our minimum expectation this season.

I like watching him play when he does play but there is the problem, he's a little too delicate and gets far too many niggling injuries.

Ramirez has proved he can go past defenders on the right but his crossing is not of the standard of an international class winger and I reckon his best spot is in the middle behind the main striker(s) Any news on him BTW?

Redmond has a good reputation but don't know much about him. Still think CB is our weakest position though and if we're going to be spending 10-15 mill would rather bring in a top anchor man. Cork and Davis can play down that right side and though neither are spectacular as wingers they can do a workmanlike job. Gaston is the man for the job is we can't find a rough diamond on the cheap in Europe.

I agree but it would be good to know the truth behind this summers problems, I have stood behind the club through all this upheaval and feel all the criticism totally unfair.

As you say onwards and upwards.

Cover for RB, another. CB, winger and possibly another strike option and we will easily achieve last years performance.

Its been done to death fascia..leave it,or wait till the autobiographies start coming out.
Really impressed with the start though,especially as there is more to come,and Tadic is a gem.
Little bit worried about the Artur situation though,I thought we had the GC thing nailed on,but now it looks like it might go back to square one again,but then again how do you keep a top quality keeper happy sitting on the bench?

Actually allowing for a less pressing style we are not so dissimilar to last season….scoring and missing sitters is still a 8loody issue as defensive frailties, I cannot understand why another class CB is not on the horizon …our new CB is direct replacement for Lovren so we are still were we where last year..
Those missed opportunities bug me so much and are the difference between us and top 6 at least….
…teams below us last season never created anywhere near the chances in the first place but you have to take them..
What goes on at the training ground I wonder that players make the same mistake again and again….
However I am reasonably cheerful!!

Townsend wouldn't be on massive wages. If we really want him we'll pay the money anyway. Osvaldo was on £70k a week and most of our first team players are on £30k to £50k a week so I don't think wages would be a problem at all.

We did fantastic yesterday, so close to getting a result. We are in for a very exciting season and if we can get someone like Townsend in or another tricky little winger - it's going to make things even more exciting.
Is that true about Osvaldos wages?

If it is perhaps that was one of the factors that unsettled the players and caused the exodus.
That's all in the past now.Onwards and upwards.
I agree but it would be good to know the truth behind this summers problems, I have stood behind the club through all this upheaval and feel all the criticism totally unfair.

As you say onwards and upwards.

Cover for RB, another. CB, winger and possibly another strike option and we will easily achieve last years performance.
Its been done to death fascia..leave it,or wait till the autobiographies start coming out.
Really impressed with the start though,especially as there is more to come,and Tadic is a gem.
Little bit worried about the Artur situation though,I thought we had the GC thing nailed on,but now it looks like it might go back to square one again,but then again how do you keep a top quality keeper happy sitting on the bench?
Very impressed with Koeman, nice he seemed to have a plan b, c and d at time switching the play around Liverpool didn't see to know how to defend against the continual interchange of positions, I think if anyone can sort the situation out with the goalie he can.

£10 million is too much for a winger who although fast is not really speedy. You need someone like Sterling. Towsend also doesn't have enough variety to his game. A decent defender would soon sus him out.

Love it it just a taste of their own medicine about unsettling players. I certainly don't believe Townsend would want to come here as he's a poser and into the so called top London clubs. Yet where did he shine the most at QPR on loan!
I think we can do better than him anyway and we can pick up a great striker for 10m.
Good to see they are still in the market though.
Anyone got any views on Pele or is too early to make judgement?

I rate Townsend, but even the idea that this could give them a negotiating tool in trying to buy Morgan is not worth contemplating IMO.

Morgan showed his worth on Sunday, as did the work ethic of the whole team and particularly the midfield. I don't think we should be investing in wingers, and particularly ones who may not track back, when we have such good, dependable options already.

Seems bizarre considering we lost, but I wouldn't want to change our midfield following yesterday and even if we did need to change, Isgrove, Taider, Cork and Gaston surely give us all the options we need in midfield? I think we are over-stocked in that area if anything.

Centre back (Maya again showed he is prone to the odd lapse in concentration every game) and out and out striker, not so much, and the level of cover is worrying in those two areas, although I do think Koeman is going to be relying on goals from midfield and particularly the wide men.

Yes and he had the experience of keeping all the Barcelona prima donas happy which is no easy task. It was great watching all the tweaks he made throughout the game yesterday. It was also great to have so much talent available on the bench when he needed it. For me that was perhaps the most important thing to come out of yesterday. I would say we are a much stronger side this season. Not only does that enable the manager to make changes in the game it will also help with injuries. We lacked that last season. All those sales may just turn out to have been a good thing. I never doubted it myself. As for Townsend he'd be a decent purchase but it wouldn't be the end of the world if we didn't get him. Levy is always tempted by money however and it would be worth getting Townsend just for the joy of seeing Pochettino lose a player he says he wants to keep!

It was also great to have so much talent available on the bench when he needed it. For me that was perhaps the most important thing to come out of yesterday. I would say we are a much stronger side this season. Not only does that enable the manager to make changes in the game it will also help with injuries. We lacked that last season. All those sales may just turn out to have been a good thing. I never doubted it myself. As for Townsend he'd be a decent purchase but it wouldn't be the end of the world if we didn't get him. Levy is always tempted by money however and it would be worth getting Townsend just for the joy of seeing Pochettino lose a player he says he wants to keep!
In the managerial stakes,it very much looks like we've done one over Manure. Ron manager is king!

I'm sure this may have been mentioned already, but we are also linked with this guy:

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman wants to make Lazio midfielder Alvaro Gonzalez, 29, his eighth signing of the summer and is preparing an £8m offer for the Uruguay international. (Daily Mirror).

Interestingly he can play at right back, although the fact he is also noted as a defensive midfielder concerns me slightly - unless we're just going to sit a massive brick wall across the middle and dare anyone to try to get through it. Have to say if you added another rock alongside the other two we'd be frightening. Maybe that's why he thinks the centre back options are OK.

Hardly surprising when you have a management team plotting to stitch us up behind the scenes as soon as Nicola left.

Maybe the players he talks about are right to be unhappy, but maybe they also have massive vested interests to do with wage demands and unsustainable ambitions as well.

As far as I can see Nicola was very much into luxury and no expense spared preparation. I'm sure I'd be gutted if that was taken away from me.

And players at the end of the day are employees, so if their favourite chairman resigns and their beloved manager doesn't seem very happy about it, I can quite believe that anyone coming in would have a hard time winning them over.

I think this is a make or break season for Ramirez. Last season he seemed to spend most of his time travelling between the UK and Uruguay.
He has got to start to deliver the goods for Saints.
Can anyone remember him playing a full 90 minutes ever for Saints.
Hopefully he can be involved this weekend against WBA and help Saints get 3 points.

I think a CB and striker who knows where the net is would be a higher priority. Townsend a good player but we have a number of midfielders who can play wide if needs be and we seem to have plenty of creativity to create goals but we are prone to not killing teams off and the odd defensive lapse which could cost us games again this season. I feel with an extra quality adition in these 2 positions we really will prove our doubters wrong. It is really time to look forward. We've had a tough summer but we can't change any of that we can only shape the future and present and I was impressed with what I saw yesterday and more than any player I am very impressed with Big Ron. I hope he is given time to build something exciting here and that he remains loyal if (after some success) Spuds or Liverpool come knocking! Looking forward to Saturday and hope we can get a positive result...

Osvaldo was on £70k a week and most of our first team players are on £30k to £50k a week so I don't think wages would be a problem at all. We did fantastic yesterday, so close to getting a result. We are in for a very exciting season and if we can get someone like Townsend in or another tricky little winger - it's going to make things even more exciting.
Is that true about Osvaldos wages? If it is perhaps that was one of the factors that unsettled the players and caused the exodus.
That's all in the past now.Onwards and upwards.
I agree but it would be good to know the truth behind this summers problems, I have stood behind the club through all this upheaval and feel all the criticism totally unfair. As you say onwards and upwards. Cover for RB, another. CB, winger and possibly another strike option and we will easily achieve last years performance.
Did you seen the interview with Lambert ? He gave a very strong hint that the players were not as happy with the people that the owner had brought in as she was
Yes, thought SRL was a bit out of order there. He could have just said that as he was now a Liverpool player he shouldn't comment on oher clubs. No need to have a dig at the owner.
Might be just as well that he did though,coming from someone like him,the one thing we all can be certain of is,that it is the truth.
Bullsh!t another ploy by Brenda to unsettle our players, watch them bid for Clyne or Spyder before the close of the window, if he was so concerned for saints why did he have to say anything?

**** from who,Brenda or Rickie? I agree Rodgers appears to be a bit slimey,but I don't think Lambert has a bad bone in his body,and his version of events seem to support what a few of us have taken a battering recently for daring to put our heads above the parapet, and suggest might just be exactly what happened.

Sorry he was the first to leave, he may well of been the catalyst for the other guys going and is it so coincidental that Brenda comes out with his little bit about saints lack of ambition and hey presto Rickie backs it all up in his interview.

Why the interview, why did he have to have a go if he ain't got a bad bone in his body, why is he not still playing for saints if they are so close to his heart, money money money.

I personally don't think Liverpool were interested in Lambert for anything other than a link to Lieanna and Lovren, why are they looking for another striker currently have they not got enough cover in that area?

Townsend wouldn't be on massive wages. If we really want him we'll pay the money anyway. Osvaldo was on £70k a week and most of our first team players are on £30k to £50k a week so I don't think wages would be a problem at all. We did fantastic yesterday, so close to getting a result. We are in for a very exciting season and if we can get someone like Townsend in or another tricky little winger - it's going to make things even more exciting.
Is that true about Osvaldos wages? If it is perhaps that was one of the factors that unsettled the players and caused the exodus.
That's all in the past now.Onwards and upwards.
I agree but it would be good to know the truth behind this summers problems, I have stood behind the club through all this upheaval and feel all the criticism totally unfair. As you say onwards and upwards. Cover for RB, another. CB, winger and possibly another strike option and we will easily achieve last years performance.
Did you seen the interview with Lambert ? He gave a very strong hint that the players were not as happy with the people that the owner had brought in as she was
Yes, thought SRL was a bit out of order there. He could have just said that as he was now a Liverpool player he shouldn't comment on oher clubs. No need to have a dig at the owner.

Townsend wouldn't be on massive wages. If we really want him we'll pay the money anyway.

Yes, thought SRL was a bit out of order there. He could have just said that as he was now a Liverpool player he shouldn't comment on oher clubs. No need to have a dig at the owner.
Might be just as well that he did though,coming from someone like him,the one thing we all can be certain of is,that it is the truth.

I personally don't think Liverpool were interested in Lambert for anything other than a link to Lieanna and Lovren, why are they looking for another striker currently have they not got enough cover in that area?
Steady on fascia,you're starting with the conspiracy theory again,now that IS,bullsh.it!!

I don't know..that's why I asked. I've always wanted to read it.
Its about time he got a knighthood anyway, it would be richly deserved (even if he did nearly run me over outside Wadham Stringers in the early seventies backing out with his new Jag..I forgave him in '76).

Townsend wouldn't be on massive wages. If we really want him we'll pay the money anyway. Osvaldo was on £70k a week and most of our first team players are on £30k to £50k a week so I don't think wages would be a problem at all. We did fantastic yesterday, so close to getting a result.

Is that true about Osvaldos wages? If it is perhaps that was one of the factors that unsettled the players and caused the exodus.
That's all in the past now.Onwards and upwards.
I agree but it would be good to know the truth behind this summers problems, I have stood behind the club through all this upheaval and feel all the criticism totally unfair. As you say onwards and upwards. Cover for RB, another. CB, winger and possibly another strike option and we will easily achieve last years performance.
Did you seen the interview with Lambert ? He gave a very strong hint that the players were not as happy with the people that the owner had brought in as she was
Yes, thought SRL was a bit out of order there. He could have just said that as he was now a Liverpool player he shouldn't comment on oher clubs. No need to have a dig at the owner.
Might be just as well that he did though,coming from someone like him,the one thing we all can be certain of is,that it is the truth.
Bullsh!t another ploy by Brenda to unsettle our players, watch them bid for Clyne or Spyder before the close of the window, if he was so concerned for saints why did he have to say anything?
**** from who,Brenda or Rickie? I agree Rodgers appears to be a bit slimey,but I don't think Lambert has a bad bone in his body,and his version of events seem to support what a few of us have taken a battering recently for daring to put our heads above the parapet, and suggest might just be exactly what happened.
Sorry,that first word should read ****!
Sorry he was the first to leave, he may well of been the catalyst for the other guys going and is it so coincidental that Brenda comes out with his little bit about saints lack of ambition and hey presto Rickie backs it all up in his interview.

Why the interview, why did he have to have a go if he ain't got a bad bone in his body, why is he not still playing for saints if they are so close to his heart, money money money.

I personally don't think Liverpool were interested in Lambert for anything other than a link to Lieanna and Lovren, why are they looking for another striker currently have they not got enough cover in that area?
Steady on fascia,you're starting with the conspiracy theory again,now that IS,bullsh.it!!
You think Brenda wanted lambert and you can see him playing regularly?

You don't think it was just a little scripted Rickies interview taking into context Brenda's interview?

I think as was said we will have to wait for the money grabbing baskets autobiographies.
Has McMenemy done one yet?
I suspect you are taking the Michael, however, has he?
I don't know..that's why I asked. I've always wanted to read it.
Its about time he got a knighthood anyway, it would be richly deserved (even if he did nearly run me over outside Wadham Stringers in the early seventies backing out with his new Jag..I forgave him in '76).
Top man, not to develop the CT again but has he given his view on the recent goings on?

saint christopher says...

On more football related matters, the turn-coat still wants Spiderman (having supposedly upped his price to £17m) yet flatly rejects our £10 mr Townsend.

Not a betting man but if I was I'd be tempted to put my money on a deal involving the 2 swapping places for around £10m. Not saying I'd be overjoyed at the prospect but all depends on how right Spider's mind really is now.
