Eintracht Frankfurt Turn Down Bid For Saints Target
Tuesday, 1st Sep 2020 17:18
Media reports in Germany are saying that Eintracht Frankfurt have rejected a significant bid from an English club for Southampton linked defender Martin Hinteregger.
Central defender Martin Hinteregger has been linked with a move to St Mary's and now according to German daily the Frankfurter Rundschau, Eintracht Frankfurt have rejected a bid worth €20m from an unnamed English club.
Whether that club is Saints or not is not mentioned, but It has been claimed that Eintracht Frankfurt have ruled out selling the defender and wasted little time in rejecting the offer.
The Bundesliga side signed him from Augsburg on loan in January 2019 before making the deal permanent later in summer for €9m, but what might put Saints off is the players age, he will turn 28 next week, some will say that the Saints policy is not to sign anyone over 25/26, but the reality is that Saints need some experience in the centre of the back four and Hinteregger will be well known to Ralph Hasenhuttl, but whether he will break from the blueprint to sign his fellow Austrian is yet to be seen.

Here we are again, back in the (now) much-maligned EFL Trophy and a home tie against West Ham United U21s, and I think probably our last chance to stay in the competition? Robbie’s most recent rallying cry has been to “buy, buy, buy” when it comes to iFollow streams, and with the likelihood of supporters getting to matches receding, making streaming probably our only viable revenue stream, who can blame him. As an exile, I was never expecting I’d have many opportunities to see the U’s in the flesh this season, so he’s rather preaching to the converted as far as I’m concerned, but I do like the loyalty scheme he’s put together.
Away days by Andyconky
Many pounds have been spent and many train tracks have been travelled but who doesn't love an away day. Doesn't matter if its Chester or Chelsea or Lincoln or Liverpool, it's all good fun with a sense of adventure of what may happen.

Matchday #3, and Robbie’s not happy. I know opinion is divided, but I have considerable sympathy with the Chairman on this one. I don’t want this to be necessarily a political comment, but many are looking on with bemusement as the government seem to lurch from one knee-jerk reaction to another during this crisis, and I would be saying this of any government, regardless of their political persuasion. The nub of Robbie’s comments is quite simple, what’s the point in having a panel of experts working closely with responsible club owners to plan supporter’s safe return to essentially open air stadia, investing in alterations, changes to layout, developing detailed procedures etc. to then have the rug pulled out from under their feet? I know why, a second wave seems to be coming, and frankly it looks like people simply can’t be trusted to follow the rules – but why then are pubs still open, or does the virus only come out after 10pm?
