Jay Rod Signs
Jay Rod Signs

Saints made their first signing of the close season and it's a big one as they landed long term target Jay Rodriguez.

Saints showed their intention for the coming season in signing Jay Rodriguez from Burnley,the fee is undisclosed although all reports suggest its in excess of seven million pounds as reported in the media last week.

Saints now have a plethora of hungry strikers for the coming campaign although noneof them have Premier experience of note, however that's only a small matter if you have a combination of skill, hunger and desire to succeed as the strikers at Norwich and Swansea showed last term. 

All in all though Saints supporters are pleased with this weekends work.

Pleased he has signed as the club obviously rate him - we clearly needed to put in a bit of work to get him to sign...

Who next then?

A winger (Zaha, Ince, Trotter - have all been linked), a quick centre back is most in need (rumours around the boy at Cardiff), and a keeper (2 of the 3 England keepers are linked - shame one isnt Joe Hart!). We probably also need an experienced C Midfielder to make up the squad and probably a full back. I think we need a left back but we seem to be more interested in a right back (Clyne etc).

Our policy appears to be high potential but inexperienced players - I'm ok with this, but what like one or two players who know what they are going to be up against. As a potential wide target, someone like Routledge (I know he had a few games on loan at Pompey), who has pace, some experience of the big league and I think would be keen to join a bigger team than Swansea.

Apols for another post - but have made a Routledge comment I had a quick look at his history on Wikipedia.. Have a look at the 'Tottenham' section. Maybe he wont fit in! Amazing............

For those who care - BBC sport have updated their website overnight and 'we are premier league'...

Fantastic news and a young Englishman as well. Not some final pay day foreigner who doesn't give a damn. I wish Jay all the best, we'll be expecting big things from our record signing. Wouldn't want to be NA right now. How do you select two from our forward line-up? Lot of goals there potentially.

Also really like the way NC and NA go about their business. Really professional ethic with regards to dealing with transfer targets.

Would love to see us go for Wilfred Zaha (not sure if he has signed a new contract at CP), he's def one for the future with electric pace.
