THERE are yet to be any further developments concerning Saints’ outgoings this summer.

Trio Mario Lemina, Charlie Austin and Guido Carrillo are all still waiting to find new clubs before the new season gets underway next week.

However, if they are to join another English side, time is against them as the domestic transfer window shuts on Thursday, 8 August.

The Daily Echo this week revealed that Everton have made an initial enquiry over a potential deal for Lemina but that’s as far as it’s gone.

Saints are looking to make money on the initial £15m they spent to bring the Gabon international to St Mary’s in 2017.

He was also subject to interest from Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester earlier in the window, only for the three sides to fall short of Saints’ valuation.

It was also revealed by the Daily Echo that Lemina has been taken off the first team schedule and lost his spot in the Staplewood changing room to make way for this summer’s new additions.

Austin also finds himself in a similar situation to the 25-year-old midfielder.

He, too, has been excluded from first team duties and kept away from the dressing room throughout pre-season.

The striker responded to this by posting a picture on Twitter of someone being frozen out, only to then deactivate his account.

It’s claimed that he turned down a move to Championship side West Brom back in June as he wanted to remain in the Premier League.

However, if he wants to secure a move away from St Mary’s then it’s almost certainly going to be at an English club.

In this sense, his hand could be strengthened as the window edges closer to shutting when teams are running out of options on who they could sign to bolster their attack.

But unless there is interest from European clubs, where the Spanish and German window doesn’t close until Monday, 2 September, Austin could be set for a spell in the Saints wilderness.

It’s more likely that Lemina and Carrillo will attract a potential buyer from the continent due to their respective experiences in Italy, Spain and France.

Carrillo is currently attracting interest from his native Argentina where Boca Juniors are said to be keen on signing him permanently.

And this is a move that could drag on as their transfer window runs until Tuesday, 24 September.

As previously reported by the Daily Echo, Saints are keen for Carrillo to leave on a permanent basis as opposed to another loan deal.

The former Monaco forward, who cost the St Mary’s outfit £19m, spent last season on loan with Leganes, where he linked up with ex-Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino.
