Hasenhuttl Says One Player Could Still Come In
Thursday, 8th Aug 2019 14:20
Ralph Hasenhuttl has confirmed that Saints could yet complete a deal on an incoming transfer before the day is over with the club working hard on all fronts.
With Sky Sports reporting that Charlie Austin is about to join West Brom for a £5 million fee on a 2 year deal, good business seeing that it is more than we paid for him 3 1/2 years ago Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is still hopeful that Saints can announce a signing before the end of the deadline.
Hasenhuttl said: “The phone is hard working and there a lot of meetings in the back so I think we should wait.
“It can be that one player is leaving us today and we still have players in our mind and maybe one is coming in.
“It’s very busy behind the scenes."
“We always speak about our possibilities and try to stay on track which means the baggage must be perfect for us.
“We try to bring in players who have the perfect personality for our team which is what we have with Che Adams and Moussa Djenepo.
“If we think the financial risk is ok then we will do it.”
So there you have it, the club is still working hard to try and get something done, the departure of Charlie Austin will bring in a decent chunk to add to the kitty but more importantly will reduce the wage bill down significantly, Southampton waits with baited breath.

I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
