  • "A lot of money for an unproven player at Premier League level and only 1 year letf on his contract. £4m would be a fair amount. I'd be a bit gutted to see Chappers go tho - still think he's agot a lot to give at the top level. Would rather see Barnard go instead.

    New players I think we could realistically get for new season:
    Fabio on loan from United
    Keiran Richardson from Sunderland who wants out,
    Lukuka loan from Chelsea (they paid £18m for him and want to loan him out especially after signing Hazard & The Hulk),
    Owen on a free would be a kind of Connelly replacement in my opinion & would work well with Lambert (PLUS guaranteed 15 goals),
    Phillips from Blackpool (maybe Puncheon going the other way) has the pace we desperately need,
    Jarvis from Wolves (maybe - if the Phillips deal doesn't come off),
    Curtis Davis from Birmingham as backup for Fonte and Hosiveld,
    finally that Michu character who sounds good but don't know much about him."

Southampton close in on Jay Rodriguez

Saints transfer target Jay Rodriguez

Saints transfer target Jay Rodriguez

First published in Sport

Saints have had a £7m bid for Jay Rodriguez accepted by Burnley.

As revealed last week, the two clubs were in discussions regarding a deal worth in excess of £6m for the striker.

The Clarets, who are resigned to losing the 22-year-old this summer, had valued the player at £8m.

But with the forward having just one year left on his Turf Moor contract, the Championship side have been willing to accept a smaller sum.

If Rodriguez does move to Saints, the fee would break the club's long-standing transfer record, set when they signed Rory Delap for £4m from Derby in 2001.
