    I see our pet Skunt Syphilis is back, I thought it was another week until half term?

    Now then sonny, go away and get that fin-rot sorted, you're starting to embarrass yourself. Either that or the tides out!

    Perhaps you need to go and do your homework before uncle comes up to tuck you in and give you his special present, and we all know what that is don't we! Now **** off to the dirty end of the M27, no doubt the tide will be in soon so you'll be able to find your special rock for those with "special" needs!"

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.
