Saints Linked With Mohammed Salisu
Tuesday, 31st Dec 2019 11:13

Saints are being linked with signing Mohammed Salisu but does this rumour have any substance or is it just agent talk with Everton & Manchester United also linked.

Mohammed Salisu has recently been linked with a move to England but is seems that much of the talk is from media sources close to his club Real Valladollid who have been trying to get him to sign another deal and would perhaps prefer to ship him out now if that doesn't happen.

Manchester United have also been linked , although as Juan Mata’s father represents the player, that is an easy link to make to the Old Trafford club.

The central defender has a release clause standing at €12m, which wouldn’t be a problem if a Premier League club is seriously keen. Pucela Fichajes, who have been carrying the claims, say Southampton could be about to offer €10m, which would then in turn present the chance of another club going for the full €12m, so as not to lose out.

Salisu is the type of player that Saints would normally look at, aged just 20 and with his best years ahead, howver it is not what Saints need at the moment, Salisu has only 18 games experience in La Liga only having moved up from Real Valladollid B in the summer.

He has impressed with his displays hence the Spanish club keen to either sign him up to a new deal with either no release clause or an increased one, or cash in on him now.

So I think this rumour is more about his agent trying to get him a move now rather thn Saints being interested.

Yes he would be ideal for us, but truthfully we need a central defender in with the experience necessary, not with limited game time as he has so far.

We need someone with a few miles on the clock.

Probably going to be forced to sell before we buy so as Cedric is off soon I suspect we will replace him like for like at FB as soon as we can.

In the absence of any other sales a loan move for an older player at CB/CM seems a better option.

To El Santo...
YES ... he looks good, but when I see those clips from matches I always ask myself ...
What was the opposition like that day ?

The last thing we need to do is sign another mediocre central defender in the Howdy or Vestergaard mode. Whether we could have defended the Tomkin's goal against us for Palace or not we didn't deserve to beat Palace because we didn't get control of the midfield. So I would spend any money we've got in midfield.

Lots of discussion this week on football forums, including here, on two subjects – the petition to lobby parliament to allow limited numbers of supporters back into football grounds, and of course the return of that old chestnut from Man City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano, introducing Premier League ‘B’ teams into the EFL. First off, I don’t mind admitting I’ve signed the petition ( https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/552036 ), as have 192,779 others at the time of writing, though I don’t actually think it’ll make any difference. I can completely understand why some do not think this is a good idea, as second-wave spikes of coronavirus infection pop up all over the country (mainly because – let’s face it – some people are dicks and can’t be trusted to sit the right way on a toilet). But to me, the two go hand in hand (not dicks and toilets) – whilst football clubs throughout the country struggle financially without spectators, we are always going to be under threat of this sort of ‘B’ team nonsense as a condition of financial support from the Premier League fat cats. They got their way in 2016 with the EFL trophy, who’s to say they won’t again when the financial squeeze really starts to tighten its grip without paying customers through the turnstiles? Robbie has featured prominently in this debate in recent weeks, and looks like he will again on Sky tomorrow if this tweet from Sophy Ridge is anything to go by -
