Japanese defender Maya Yoshida on verge of joining Southampton

Daily Echo: Maya Yoshida Maya Yoshida

Saints are on the brink of signing Japan defender Maya Yoshida.

Saints boss Nigel Adkins completely dismissed the prospect of landing the 23-year-old VVV-Venlo player after Saturday's Barclays Premier League defeat to Wigan.

But it is understood Saints are poised this afternoon to complete what is reportedly a £2million deal inside the next 24 hours.

The npower Championship runners-up are also eyeing three more signings before the transfer window closes on Friday night, on top of putting the finishing touches to a move for Bologna star Gaston Ramirez.

I believe if this happens it will be a good signing. I thought this guy was superb during the Olympics and he is a real talented defender from my (limited) knowledge. I must admit that the Olympics was the first time I had seen him play, but he impressed me.

I think, like in the good old tradition that we will make Friday a real interesting final day of the window. Most deals are done in this week as all the negotiations that have gone on over the summer are finalized.

This will make for a very entertaining transfer window and more importantly in Saints case, a real prospect of an exciting and entertaining side.

Come on you Saints.

Blimey more average players joining your club. Spending 12m on a player these days is chicken feed compared to teams like Chelsea and Man C who have spent real big.

at last a defender we still need at least 2 more. Why do we keep spending money on forwards like 7 million on last seasons championship second best strike when we already had the best. Its our defence that will be crucified in this league. Anyway playing one up front we will have a different striker each half for games on end madness what about consistency its the only way to succeed in prem. Good luck Saints we are going to need it. pls beat the vile mancs

Well i suppose its better than visiting your local Pound world looking for transfer targets. Who cares how much these players cost, more important is the sheer quality we are getting for a bargain price. Difference between us and other Prem clubs, We pay how much they are really worth whereas other teams pay double to sweeten the deal.

Good job the people at Saints know about football, unlike you.

I suppose we could buy all big name EPL mercenaries looking to fleece the club for a big pay day then disappear leaving the club in turmoil and financial ruin.... or has that happened to another club not far from here?

You are a first class plonker with absolutely no knowledge of football. Just an idiot trying to take the mick out of a club which is progressing and making the RIGHT signings, unlike your scrap heap club.

Bye Bye fish face, go and support your debt ridden joke of a club whilst we enjoy our well run club.

What a silly fool you are.

We aren't kidding ourselves that we could beat Man U easily, but like City we will give them a good game. Going to be great having them at St Mary's for a league game though don't u think?

Why is it with you lot of Saints fans. As soon as somebody from Poopey writes anything derogatory on these posts about the Saints it ends up in a slanging match.
Why not just totally ignore them, then with a bit of luck they might just go away.
They ought to to do as wild rupert suggested and do what they can to support their own team

i see voldemort is out with his begging bowl again, has he no shame? "we can only name 13 players for our next game". no voldemort you can name a full squad using your youth team. every other club has done it you are no different, stop crying and begging your an embarrassment!

on a better note hope this signing happens and notice that in the article they say another 3 signings and ramirez. so is that 5 signings before friday? hope if so, we get some more attacking players as that looks to be our week spot!

Well I can come on this site and honestly say I have seen Yoshida play at Hampden park a month ago. He is class and 2 million is a steal. I am a realist and I expect it will take a few weeks to bed in the players coming in. Nigel has once again spoken to sky this evening and is dropping hints on players coming in, but would not comment on one of the players we are after. But Kelvin hinted that he is on the way. Suggest some one visits the airport to be on the look out for Saints officials welcoming new players along with the nasty agents hoping for a cut!

He was the over age captain of the under 21s. He isn't captain of the full team, although that might not be long coming because he seems to have good leadership qualities.

Not worth it now, but could have been if he had stayed with us and learn't his trade before jetting off like a headless chicken seeing those pound signs, don't think anyone would pay him those wages he maybe club-less unless he takes a pay cut.

Just like to say that now all the speculation is now coming to an end.
The players are coming through the door.
They look like they can become terrific players.

I would like to believe that Rickie Lambert can continue to have a major influence in their future with the Saints.
His positivity and drive has got him to the top division and not least of all, his skill, when many commentators said he wasn't up to it.
We need his stability and experience in the team, to bring on all of this great talent that we are now assembling.

Agree completely. Ricky is a player who will cause havoc in this division if he gets the service and doesn't get injured. I think it would be good for him to stay.

Given that we now have more strikers than a welsh mining village this now sets us up to be an attacking side with multiple options. How cool is THAT !!

I still hope the passing game that NA has developed so succesfully here is retained though. It is both attractive to watch and effective.

If all these signings are completed the moaners and groaners will have to start looking for a different thing to target.

I will be very content once we have got a couple of wins under our belt. It will settle the team and raise the spirits of the fans.

In all honesty the opening fixtures were a very strong challenge for a newly promoted side. The purchases so far all appear very sound indeed.

If I look beyond the early season jitters I have a very good feeling about this season indeed.

NA/NC I salute you.

The sounds kind of exist, but they are alternatives for the same morpheme and 'heard' as the same thing.

Try this. Say "Rickie Lambert", "Lickie Rambert", "Rickie Rambert" and " Lickie Lambert" to a a group of Japanese people, and the majority will will swear blind you said exactly the same thing.

With two Japanese on the bus now, I wonder if this communication problem is the reason behind the speculation over Rickie Lambert.
The sounds kind of exist, but they are alternatives for the same morpheme and 'heard' as the same thing.

So long as we manage to sign the 'light prayers' we shouldn't spend too long on our knees.

Kind of reminds me of when I complained to the waiter at my local Japanese that the chicken was rubbery, to which he replied thank you very much.

Don’t blame me, blame Benny.

Adam Rarana is a bit of a mouthful for them too.

I do hope that they give this chap a lesson on - the laws of drinking and driving in this country.

SFC (Sad Faced ***s) have an appalling record in that department

The fishy jealousy in this thread is quite astounding.

I see alot of alleged fans from the other end of the M27 using alot of words to say not very much at all.
Once again I shall repeat the mantra:

'You would be better off spending your energy trying to save your club'

unless of course you've seen the light and realised that it's better to just let that club die and start a new one. You've got no money, no players, no ground and the only people interested in you are a Trust who appear to be grasping at straws every week and a businessman who sank too much money into the circus and didn't realise what a poor investment it was until it was too late.
Oh and an administrator who's in over his head and charging the earth for his second rate services.
no one wants to buy your club because it's not even worth asset stripping no matter how much everyone says it's worth. You can dress it up any way you can but like my Grandad used to say: 'You can't polish a turd'


You can't drag Saints down to your level. We got the ground, we got the financial backing and we got the players without spending ridiculous amounts in the transfer window. We're in the Premier League and we intend to stay here no matter how bumpy the ride.

and you know what? Even if we do end up having a nightmare season and move back to the Championship we'll STILL be two leagues above you and we will STILL have the ground, the players and the backing.

So jog on skates because you've got nothing to say, a joke of a club and the future on the south coast is red and white.
