    I would suggest Saints take a leaf out of Lawrie's book - mix old hands with the youngsters.. Saints should be looking at Michael Owen (available on a free) - tremendous experience and knowledge at top level, and try and get Wayne Bridge back. Thoughts anyone?
    Wayne Bridge? Sorry but he was and always will be overrated. A nice player but there's something very Tyro league about the way he kicks the ball (which is always backwards BTW) and in my opinion not better than Fox. I think his name proceeded him and then he's been found out at every club.
    Owen wouldn't be in it for the long haul and I'd guarantee NC wouldn't pay more than a quid for a player as injury prone as him as it's not an investment. If he brought his wages down to less than £20k per week and was on a free it would be worth a second glance but we all know he is only in it for the money.
    fox is a poor left back .bridge would be better fox is ok going forward crosses .but fonte and ho have carried him to much .he was not good enough in the premier with burnley .it is important we buy a left back urgently and for cover .davis bham was miles the best left back in the championship i would bid for him ,way better than fox"

Southampton 'make £6m-plus offer' for Jay Rodriguez claim reports

First published in Saints News

Saints have reportedly offered in excess of £6m for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.

Nigel Adkins failed in his pursuit to sign the highly-rated forward during last summer's transfer window, but it appears the club have now gone back in for the 22-year-old as they look to strengthen the squad for their Premier League return.

The Clarets are ideally hoping to receive £8m for the player, who has one year left to run on his contract, but were said to be mulling over the offer from Saints, according to reports from Lancashire.

However, this afternoon Burnley's head of media, Darren Bentley, claimed the club had received no bids for the young striker, who is also said to be attracting the attention of Sam Allardyce at West Ham.
