Saints In Competition For Teenage Midfield Starlet
Thursday, 16th Jun 2016 22:33
Saints are reportably in a battle with some of Europe's top clubs for the latest teenage sensation in France.
Saints are being touted as a possible destination for Bordeaux's Adam Ounas, the 19 year old midfield is attracting the attention of not just Saints but also Manchester United & Stoke City in England as well as the likes of Napoli and Red Bull Leipzig in Europe.
Although Bordeauz have not had a great season, Ounas has, scoring five times and providing two assists in his twenty three appearances this season.
The price being bandied around at the moment is around ten million euros, however he is under contract to the French club till 2019 so they are in no hurry to sell at least not cheaply.
One person who does seem to be though is his agent, he is saying that he has had several potential offers for his client at that ten million euros figure.
He has won a cap for the French U20 side and is tipped for big things in the future, Saints reputation for developing new talent will be an advantage if they have to compete for his signature.

Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.

One name in Rochdale’s modern history that seems to be knocked more than most is that of Graham Barrow.
