    JR would be a good signing IMHO. Young & hungry, not an established Premiership 'name' who is just looking for his next pay deal etc. NC is hugely ambitious & if this has been sanctioned I am sure there will be more to come (defenders & a CM would be good). By the way, for anyone who's interested (note the correct use of an apostrophe) I am now back in the UK in sunny Southampton & looking for a new user name - suggestions please! COYR!!!
    Whereabouts in Southampton are you and what line of work are you in? I'm thinking of hilarious (ie not hilarious) puns based on famous Robins. For example, if you work as a driver in a large fleet of Transits, you could be Rob In Van Thirty.

    Similarly, if you live in somehwhere quite 'street' (I'm thinking maybe Shirley or somewhere?) you could be Rob In (The) Hood.

    We need more information to make this work.
    Yeah great. He's turned up in Southampton now we're in the Prem, where was he in the dark Div1 days eh? Enjoying himself humpin bloody sheep whilst we had to go to Brentford that's where!

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.
