    Guys lets please accept one thing..............an opinion is an opinion not a fact just as disagreeing with someones opinion is fine but no more factual. All are entitled to an opinion just as you are. Please let's not get too personal with our replies and contradictions.............
    Everyone is likely to see things in a different way we are human........and for the record Ely is not the player we hoped for!!!

    Here’s the link.....


    Monaco have agreed a deal to sign Southampton's Gabon midfielder Mario Lemina, 25, on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy. (RMC - in French)

    Alex Crook has said it is a loan deal with an obligation to buy - similar to our Ings deal. So essentially we have sold him and will take payment next season!

    Of course Alex Crook is always wrong so ignore everything I just said.

    I'd be a little surprised if loan him with just an option to buy. It wouldn't make sense.

    There were plenty of teams interested, and if Lemina doesn't want to play here then just sell him and take the cash. Also, if Lemina agreed to terms with Monaco, it seems like they're willing to sign him. Why discuss personal terms if it's just a loan? Plus, anything less than 20m is a steal, and Monaco can probably get him for less than 15m. And they definitely have the money.

    I think that’s pretty much what got us in this mess so far Fran.

    The deal is said to be “obligation to buy”

    He could definitely be useful off the bench. Has he scored a goal for us that wasn't a 1-0 match winner?

    I've seen quite a few club videos featuring Boufal, including one he helmed himself. He seems to be well liked by his team-mates and quite a lively character. Perhaps the "problem in the dressing-room" issues have been somewhat exaggerated, off the back of him and MH not getting on.
