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.

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.
Manager interviews: Graham Barrow 1996-1999 by fitzochris
One name in Rochdale’s modern history that seems to be knocked more than most is that of Graham Barrow.
Matches of Yesteryear - Newport v U's 14/1/17 by wessex_exile
Ahead of tomorrow’s match at Stevenage, the Matches of Yesteryear random match selector has chosen one with some familiar faces in, one or two of whom we will see tomorrow, and one we probably won’t.
Matches of Yesteryear - Notts County v U's 21/3/98 by wessex_exile
And so we come to the end of 2019 – halfway through a season that promises much, so it seems appropriate that we dip into the 1997/98 season for this blog. May I take the opportunity to wish you all a very Healthy, Prosperous and most of all Happy New Year, starting of course with three points for the U’s against Crawley tomorrow.
