Dean Hammond thinks it was the right time for him to leave Southampton

Daily Echo: Dean Hammond at the Amex Stadium in Brighton Dean Hammond at the Amex Stadium in Brighton

DEAN Hammond admitted the time was right to leave Saints after signing for his old club Brighton on a season- long loan deal.

The midfielder moved back to the Seagulls in the final moments of transfer deadline day, rejoining the team he started his career with.

While the deal is only a temporary one for now, it appears unlikely that the 29-year-old will be seen in a Saints shirt again.

Hammond certainly played an important role in the club’s rise from the depths of League One to the Premier League .

But, after helping them back into the top-flight, it became clear he would have to look elsewhere for regular first-team football.

“The three years I have been there I have played 85 to 90 per cent of the games and captained the team as well,” he said.

“We just came back and the club made the decision they were going to bring some more midfield players in.

“I am the type of player who wants to play football. I don’t want to just be within a 25-man squad in the Premier League.

“As soon as I knew of Brighton’s interest I jumped at the chance. “I could quite easily have stayed at Southampton , but once the opportunity came there was no turning back.

“When I first went to Southampton the ambition was to get back in the Championship and once we did that the ambition was to get in the Premier League and we achieved it, with a similar squad of players.

“Southampton are probably going down a different route now. They are investing heavily in the squad and they have got the financial backing to do it.”

Hammond, who has made 145 appearances and scored 11 goals at Saints following his move from Colchester in 2009, doesn’t believe his Premier League dream is over, though.

He is confident that at Brighton, with manager Gus Poyet in charge, he can get back into the top division.

“It’s everyone’s dream to play in the Premier League but I cannot see why Brighton can’t do that, the way the club is now,” he said.

“It’s fantastic the way they play football and the facilities. I would say Brighton have got as much chance as we had last year with Southampton.

“The squad here is very similar, the type of player, the way the football is played, so I can’t see why not. The Championship is a very tough league and there are a lot of good teams in it.

“Probably 15 teams will be saying the same thing I’m saying, but it’s just getting a bit of momentum going.

“Once you are winning games – and the boys have started the season really well – you never know what can happen.”

The loan window only applies to the football league, not the prem unfortunately.

Dont quite agree with you there. Alex was offered a higher paid job working with other players better than we had at the time, which could only make him a better player. He has not sat on his backside since his move and is selected to play as a first team player.
I was sorry to see him go but i dont think many young men with the ambition to play a higher standard of football would of turned down the same chance. I for one will not be booing him but quietly hoping he gets beat.

Talking of booing, i was disgusted that some supporters booed Guly when he came on...great way to motivate the player! I don't rate the guy but we should NEVER boo our own players, no matter what they have done!!

I think he means there is no loan window for the Premier League meaning there can be no 'loan activity'.

There is an 'emergency loan' window but we would not be eligible for that.

AOC went about the whole thing in a very disrespectful manner, going to the papers for interviews trying to engineer a move away from Saints and saying how he was too good for us etc while still under contract. Yes playing for Arsenal is certainly something young players can dream of, but other players who have left us (like Dean Hammond etc) and gone about it in the right way.
AOC is a Skate at the end of the day and took the first chance to leave, players like Lallana who I no doubt could of stepped up earlier with other teams has been loyal, unlike AOC.

The only reason he left was because he wanted first team football. He has not even been on the bench this season for Saints. That was even before we signed Ramirez and with Jack Cork still injured.

One of the best free transfers saints have had in a long time , served the club well both on and off the field but don't think quite premiership quality but will do a good job in the championship with Brighton , AOL had only played in the 1st division before moving to the premiership , playing in the best league in the world, improved wages and playing for a manager with a reputation for getting the best out of young players no brainer really !!! Saints were hardly going to turn down 12 million for an eighteen year old unproven in the top 2 divisions : would like to thing we will not be listening to offers for young Shaw, now we in the premier league .
Good luck Deano

Redrobbo says...

He was not a free transfer we paid a fee for him. I wish him well, I think he served us well but never thought of him as a premiership player. As for the comments about AOC who can blame a player for wanting to play at the highest level possible.At the time we were still a million miles from where we are now. Bale, Walcott and AOC all took the opportunity to better themselves, who hand on heart would turn down the oportunity of a job which probably quadruplied your salary and allow you to work in a better environment. Fans sem to think that players should show the same loyalty as fans. Why? The chances are they are not playing for the team that they supported as a boy, and even if they are if someone offers them the opportunity to earn a considerable amount of money in what could be a very short career then surely they have every right to consider it. Footballers are one tackle away from ending their career, so why not earn as much as you can when you can.

Some good points about the loyalty of AOC. Fans would do well to remember that players can move on but still give them your praise and enthusiasm whilst they are here.
All clubs poach players, so to be poached goes with the territory. Even with some of our 'homegrown' players they came from other places, e.g. Walcott was from Berkshire and had an association with Swindon, if my memory is correct? Being lower down the 'food chain' is just more frustrating!
As well as the understandable desire to try a big step forward like was presented to AOC, and the "one tackle away from a career end", players are also a few poor perfomances away from being booed, irrespective of their loyalty!

Don't understand the comments about AOC. We were not a million miles away from where we are now, we were one year away.

With the situation at the time with Puncheon it left us very weak wide right - remember all the different players trying to play out there without much effect? Personally I believe it cost us the title.

The rumour in the club was very strong that NC offered to match the Arsenal wage offer.

I still think 12m was cheap. Time will tell. I bet Nicola would gladly hand the trasfer fee back right now to have him back. After all are we not trying to build a young exciting team with half of them from the youth academy? If he doesn't fit that mould then I really don't know who does.

Of course AOC was a wonderful prospect and we shouldn't boo him. Nonetheless we got a good price.

His ability to achieve visual elegance on the pitch and his long term wider marketabilty will always be hindered by his fat @rse - a factor which Wenger overlooked.

I know for a fact that the man who takes the Arsenal kit to the laundry was taken aback when Oxo's pants were returned unwashed with a note saying: "We don't do curtains."

The thing that made it worse was the article after article after articel which came out letting us know it was going to happen. It was commented at the time that it was almost as though the Daily Echo were trying to engineer the move. I don't really agree with that (A paper will print what people want to read) but the speculation was a bit overwhelming.

What we paid for him was undisclosed, but he gave us experience where we really needed it in the leagues we were in.

Good luck to Dean Hammond! Your contribution over the past two seasons has been brilliant. Nice to see him leave on a high and for the right reasons!

I'm pretty sure we got dean for £400,000 or in that neighbourhood but whatever the price was it was money superbly spent as he battled and led the team to the top. Great leader and a real work horse, any team in the football league would have him in their team. Good luck deano.

I think he means there is no loan window for the Premier League meaning there can be no 'loan activity'.

There is an 'emergency loan' window but we would not be eligible for that.
Have you seen our defence? That's an emergency! :)

Fans sem to think that players should show the same loyalty as fans. Why? The chances are they are not playing for the team that they supported as a boy, and even if they are if someone offers them the opportunity to earn a considerable amount of money in what could be a very short career then surely they have every right to consider it. Footballers are one tackle away from ending their career, so why not earn as much as you can when you can.
I agree mate,Wayne Bridge was a Saints boy born and bred but still chose to follow the money, who can blame him really ? Shame we didnt get him back down on loan pre season

Get a carpenter to build an over-sized, comedy barstool that is big enough to seat four full-grown adults?

Good Luck Deano!! I actually thought he would do well in the prem but that was before we splashed out of £30 million on players. His ability to control the pace of the game and his passing ability will be an asset to any team in the lower leagues. Unfortunately with the new formation meaning we are dropping centre mids and forwards in place of pacey wingers it means a few people are going to be put out of joint.

Im not a fan of booing any players and to a degree if people like Guly, Fox and Puncheon are put on the pitch they can only do there best, if anything it is the managers fault for playing them when out of form, in the wrong position or not getting a replacement in.

as for AOC i have to agree with Seedhouse and Thornhill- the press specualtion was a massive distraction and really took the shine off what we were trying to achieve. He was in our academy since he was eight years old, not for him to give us one season for the seniors in league one and then jog on elsewhere. complete lack on service shown to southampton fc and all the staff that, as we know, 'work ever so hard behind the scenes'. Two seasons later and we are still struggling to find a replacement for him. it makes be laugh hearing all the arsenal fans complain that theo has got no loyalty! loyalty to what...?

Deano you sir are a different bread and I salute you!

I agree his head was turned by others and all the media coverage made it worse. I did not want him to go 100% but, with what was on offer at the time you cant blame him. I do not see this as a reason to boo him on his return visits. His father, the one that was doing all the pushing is another story. He smells of fish even in the shower.

Hopefully with Ramirez we have finally replaced Oxo with someone who wants to play for us. Didn't come cheap though!

One day might also sort out CB and LB. I just hope it does not take quite as long!

Good League 1 player but Premiership not a chance. Average championship player at best. I hated watching him play for Saints if i'm honest because he had nothing to offer in terms of skill, passing or goals! I like to be entertained when I spend 20-£30 on a football ticket!

Does this mean that Billy Sharp didn't have to go?? I'd rank Sharp higher than Hammond and if he wasn't asked to leave...

Fair Play to the bloke for leaving rather than just staying and playing very rarely. The thing that stands out most in my mind with regards to Deano was the way he played in tough away trips in league 1 to places like Oldham and Bournemouth. Remember first season down he was fantastic when we won 3-1 at Boundary Park think he scored aswell

I wonder if Sharp or his wife just didnt settle in the sout and wanted to go back closer to home. Or perhaps like Deano he just fancied playing rather than warming the bench. I wonder if we have recall clauses written into the loans in case we pick up injuries.
On the question of emergency loans think that would usually only apply to goalkeepers. If you have a squad of 25 over aged players and as many as you want under the age of 21 then as a premeirship club except for the specialist position of goalkeeper I think it is fair to assume you have enough players. If they are not the right players then that is down to the club.

Yesterday posts referred to the new kit "I like it, I like it" as in are are you being served..

We always sing come on you reds when we should as before the war sing come on you stripes..as with Celtic's come on yer hooops..

Red just looks better on the ball..Leeds changed years ago to Real Madrids all white which is also rather fetching....as Liverpool clearly are in decline we simply must become the new reds...and there it is.

We must though fine players two weeks wages everytime they wear bloody dancing class coloured boots, it is simply not on, particularly when the brightest flourescent Brighton boots are nearly always worn by crap players trying to take our eye of their inability.

Adidas black boots with three serrated stripes..there it is again.

Dont quite agree with you there. Alex was offered a higher paid job working with other players better than we had at the time, which could only make him a better player. He has not sat on his backside since his move and is selected to play as a first team player. I was sorry to see him go but i dont think many young men with the ambition to play a higher standard of football would of turned down the same chance. I for one will not be booing him but quietly hoping he gets beat.
Agree with that. AOC scored some brilliant goals and was a decent saint -- especially for one with Pompey roots. Yeah, I was pi$$ed off when he left, but he's a kid, and if we should blame anyone, it was his dad.

But if you were his dad, would you have advised differently? Not so sure.


AOC is a brilliant advertisement for the academy. May he do well, everywhere except St Mary's!

Agree on all points. We did well out of AOC and we should seek to hold shaw and JWP (genius already).

Meanwhile: best of luck Deano. The Second Saint to have the nickname, ad a first class Championship player.

Pleased to see him back with his hometown club. That's a solid outcome for an honorary Saint.

He was in our academy since he was eight years old, not for him to give us one season for the seniors in league one and then jog on elsewhere. complete lack on service shown to southampton fc and all the staff that, as we know, 'work ever so hard behind the scenes'. Two seasons later and we are still struggling to find a replacement for him. it makes be laugh hearing all the arsenal fans complain that theo has got no loyalty! loyalty to what...? Deano you sir are a different bread and I salute you!
Hopefully with Ramirez we have finally replaced Oxo with someone who wants to play for us. Didn't come cheap though! One day might also sort out CB and LB. I just hope it does not take quite as long!
LB is sorted. Unleash the Shaman!

My prediction is the shaw will leave us for not less than 15 million after a brilliant run at left back.

I hope we hold him, but he has been tapped up by manure already of ourse.

What secret sauce do we feed the kids at the club? And why didn't they feed us that when we we budding footballers?

Not to put a downer on your rampant enthusiasm for the Shawster but reports say he was dodgy defensively against Stevenage. Have you ever seen him play?

Could he handle the step up at theis eary stage and could it ruin him? All said and done I would chuck him in and see how he does.

We have still produced one best examples of a striker (Doble)who can't score goals but still made it to the international scene (no not San Marino) For me this amazing for striker. Still baffles me.

All in all I would agree, Unleash Shaw. What worse (besides Dickson) could happen?

Not a sauce more a culinary delight..for example Michael roux has a wonderful recipe for lapin avec moutarde de dijon ..these culinary delights and more can be found at the club...

Compare that to the faggots and peas on offer at Brighton and the Aldi burgers at Fratton "Park" ..now park is a rather euphamistic name for a piece of slum wasteland dont you think...indeed Websters defines it as a tranquil,natural setting utilizing the attributes of nature...can you think of anywere less park like..it's a mental blur..sorry that's parklife..

I actually thought he would do well in the prem but that was before we splashed out of £30 million on players. His ability to control the pace of the game and his passing ability will be an asset to any team in the lower leagues. Unfortunately with the new formation meaning we are dropping centre mids and forwards in place of pacey wingers it means a few people are going to be put out of joint. Im not a fan of booing any players and to a degree if people like Guly, Fox and Puncheon are put on the pitch they can only do there best, if anything it is the managers fault for playing them when out of form, in the wrong position or not getting a replacement in. as for AOC i have to agree with Seedhouse and Thornhill- the press specualtion was a massive distraction and really took the shine off what we were trying to achieve. He was in our academy since he was eight years old, not for him to give us one season for the seniors in league one and then jog on elsewhere. complete lack on service shown to southampton fc and all the staff that, as we know, 'work ever so hard behind the scenes'. Two seasons later and we are still struggling to find a replacement for him. it makes be laugh hearing all the arsenal fans complain that theo has got no loyalty! loyalty to what...? Deano you sir are a different bread and I salute you![/p][/quote]Hopefully with Ramirez we have finally replaced Oxo with someone who wants to play for us. Didn't come cheap though! One day might also sort out CB and LB. I just hope it does not take quite as long![/p][/quote]LB is sorted. Unleash the Shaman! My prediction is the shaw will leave us for not less than 15 million after a brilliant run at left back. I hope we hold him, but he has been tapped up by manure already of ourse.

How do you get four Brghton fans on a barstool.
It could be difficult if you turn it upside down and find only three legs, there would be a bit of a scrap.

Yes much like the thousands who turned out for the big south coast derby on Tuesday night bluewhiteandinbred. At a time your club needs every penny it can lay it's hands on your loyal (The greatest supporters in the world ever) support yet again sold out Fratton just like it did in your triumphant victory over Oldham last weekend (A team we destroyed 6-0 away from home a couple of years back). Oh wait that never happened. I think it's better to have an 'anorak brigade' as you refer to it than no support like your lot, fans losing interest and soon the football league will too and The Football League X1 will be like what you lot love to go on about all the time History.

really ,take off the cheating status ,not just us but every club in the premier and football league will discount it ,same goes for chelsea and man city ,but they at least have good support great stadiums and train in there own citys ,and invested in infrastructure,your club is just a joke .3rd time now in administration .your all on here because you just cant stand it .but after what your directors have done ,you are now where you deserve to be ,most league one clubs have better stadiums and training ground in there own citys .saints still pay 15.000 less a week in wages ,with a 32.000 stadium ,because that is how you run a club ,within a financial structure .ie 27 years top flight football ,played more times in europe from 1977,much more a global football name around the world ,biggest and best supported club in the south .and plans set in for 48.000 stmarys staduim .you will never be able to compete and less you cheat again.and whos going to be foolish enough now ,youve had it and you know it ,loving your demise ,super saints we rule the south and always will do .your even be under crawley soon ,coyrs stid
