Late Loan Moves For Saints Trio
Monday, 2nd Sep 2019 12:33
One Saints player has already completed his loan move contract today, joining Guido Carrillo who left for Leganes yesterday and another two are likely to follow suit shortly.
Jake Hesketh has joined Lincoln City on loan for the rest of the season and he is likely to be joined by both Mario Lemina & Wesley Hoedt before the European transfer window closes.
Lemina, who has beenin conflict with Saints all summer, looks set to join Turkish side Galatasaray for the rest of the campaign, not the big club move his agent had clearly promised him.
Hoedt is set to join Belgium side Antwerp and although he does not seem to be in conflict with Saints as per Lemina it is clear he has had enough at St Mary's and wants away, the loan move will have an option to buy if his time there is successful.
Saints would have ideally liked to have been able to get rid of at least a couple on a permanent move, but clearly the players salary's are an issue for a buying club, so Saints have to be content with knocking a fair few quid off the wage bill for the season, if they only get £100k a week off the bill that is still a saving of £5 million or so over the season and is a significant amount.

Yesterday was Alfie’s 15th birthday, so I was delighted that the random match generator has selected a game that is an important part of our life together following the U’s. I therefore make no apologies about the focus I will place on this game – I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it did me.

Apologies all, it’s been quite a hectic week at work so this one had to wait until today I’m afraid. I’m off to the New Lawn after this, so looking forward to seeing Noah and anyone else when I get there.
