    Not so sure about this one. Oxo's parents would fly in and out, be in a top hotel, bused to and from the grounds with other wags and family under protective escort, entertained and fed in hospitality suites etc. I found it a poor reason to not go watch your son, all out civil war wouldn't stop me when Seed the Small plays for his country.
    It sounds a bit weak doesn’t it? I think Ma and Pa are still cracking the shi*ts because he lowered his ambitions by choosing to leave us for the Arse"

JAY Rodriguez looks set to complete his move to Saints in the next few days, with the striker expected to undergo a medical before the weekend.

A £7m fee has already been agreed for the 22-year-old Burnley forward, who is due to return from a holiday in Mexico today.

Saints are understood to have been discussing personal terms with Rodriguez’s advisors ahead of his arrival back in the country, and it is hoped the finishing touches can now be applied to the deal.

The Clarets’ star frontman could be put through his St Mary’s medical as early as today, with the indications being that it will likely happen at some stage in the next 48 hours.

Barring any late hitches, that should pave the way for Rodriguez to officially become a Saints player by early next week.
