  • Sun, 06 Jun 2021 12:00:38 +0000: Aston Villa set to make move for Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse - Southampton | The Guardian
    • Midfielder has become renowned for set-piece prowess
    • Villa already agreed club-record fee for Emiliano Buendía

    Aston Villa are set to make a move for Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, a day after agreeing a club-record £30m-plus deal to sign Emiliano Buendía from Norwich. Dean Smith is eager to complete transfers as quickly as possible as Villa prepare for another season of progress in the Premier League.

    Villa are understood to be keen to bolster their midfield and Ward-Prowse’s set-piece prowess, in particular, would boost their attacking armoury. That would prove especially useful if opponents continue to bring down Jack Grealish, who has been the most fouled player in the Premier League for each of the last two seasons – despite missing 12 league matches with a shin injury last season.

    Klopp’s underperformers pull their socks up, fearsome Fornals proves his worth and Foxes could mount a title challenge

    A season that looked at once stage like a bona fide catastrophe for Liverpool has not only ended on a high but with a handful of their more maligned performers getting them over the line. Alisson put an error-riddled season behind him with last week’s glorious header. Trent Alexander-Arnold returned to the form that marks him out as a captain-in-waiting. Thiago Alcântara, whose integration to the side coincided with its calamitous downturn in form, swaggered majestically through the run-in. And Sadio Mané finished a campaign to forget with the goals that set the stage for next season. Which is not to say all is suddenly rosy at Anfield – the squad is getting no younger and one of Europe’s best midfielders has bid the club goodbye – but any talk of crumbling dynasties has been proved wildly premature. It says much about Jürgen Klopp that the most miserable year of his Liverpool tenure concluded with him grinning manically as he soaked up the acclaim of rapturous fans. Alex Hess

  • Sun, 23 May 2021 17:15:23 +0000: Pablo Fornals helps West Ham past Southampton and into Europa League - Southampton | The Guardian

    Five years after West Ham moved in, the London Stadium finally feels like home. Although the attendance was capped at 10,000, the returning fans savoured every moment after watching their remarkable team seal their place in the Europa League with an emphatic victory over a tame Southampton.

    West Ham have rarely had this much fun since bidding farewell to Upton Park. There was Mark Noble, the club’s loyal captain, telling the fans to get ready for next season’s adventures in Europe. There was the moment when Declan Rice ran clear to make it 3-0 during the dying stages, and it was fitting that the final word went to a beaming David Moyes, who looked as if he could barely contain his glee when he took the microphone and told a jubilant crowd to get their passports ready and their vaccines booked after full-time.

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has been a busy man in the transfer market this summer as he looks to reinforce his squad for the start of next season after a great run which saw them promoted to the English top flight via the play offs. Adkins is now desperate to bring in new names to the club so that he can secure their position in the top flight for another season at least.

The first signing of the summer sees promising young full back Nathaniel Clyne arrive at St Mary`s from Crystal Palace after the promise of the clubs plans to attempt to quality for Europe this season were very enticing for the player. Southampton though will need to pay a large compensation fee to his current club if the deal goes through as due to the players age his former club feel they are due some type of payment from the saints after he signed a new four year deal last week.

Another player who has just be signed by the club is talented striker Jay Rodriguez after he recently arrived from Burnley for a fee which is believed to be around the six and a half million pounds mark. Adkins has long been an admirer of the player and is extremely happy with the signing which he sees as just perfect to bolster his attacking line for next season.

A shocking bit of news right now for Southampton is the fact that their attempts to bring defender Alexander Buttner to St Mary`s may be in tatters after his current club Vitesse Arnham have halted the move after another club have come into the frame for the players signature. Southampton may now find themselves in a bidding war for the player who they see as a perfect addition to their squad so as of now all dealings over the player have hit a premature halt.
