    I've studiously avoided posting on (or even reading) transfer speculation in seasons past. Is it always like this?

    No, sometimes people become worried and hysterical. :)

    Same. Don't really know if the website has much credibility. But if it really was £8.5 million, that would be the buy of the century.

    Yeah, that's what, £8mill or so. That's pretty much the fee we agreed with Atletico as part of the loan deal. As that's now gone why would they sell that cheap now?

    I think the buy-out option was 10m Euro. Except that they bought out our option for 2m Euro. So if they sell him to us now for 12m, they will only net 10m. Meaning that you are right-- they could have just let us exercise the buyout in the first place if they were going to do that.

    So I would agree that fee is too small. However, I did said a week or so ago that I think we will wind up getting Alderweireld, and it will be for less than the 18m figure people were throwing around. I still feel that way.

    The good news about a bidding war with spurs is that Levy is notoriously tight, so he is hardly going to be chucking silly bids in

    If (and it's a big if) Toby insisted on coming here, Atletico would have very little choice but to come to an agreement with us for the best price they could. They can't force him to join another club....of course, it is by no means certain that Toby wouldn't agree to go to Spurs or any other club.

    With Morgan looking to go, Dani having been sacked, I can't see wages being a major issue because if we needed to make Toby our best paid player surely no one would object as he is a very classy player and one we need to pull out all the stops to sign up on a long term contract

    Firstly I desperately want Toby to sign for Saints, but i'm pragmatic enough to realise that if you are a twenty something year old and you have a choice of being paid a lot of money, (probably more than Saints would pay per week) and can live in London rather than Southampton, which although very nice is not the most exciting place in the world then i know which one i would choose.

    The best defender I've seen pull on a Saints shirt in many a year.

    All arguments above are correct. This is a player who just desperately wants to play, he knows for a fact he'd get that here. He also has all the time in the world for RoKo and we have lodged a bid for him which would (instalments included) make him our record signing.
