Saints Linked With Chelsea Starlet
Monday, 3rd Jul 2017 10:47
Saints are being linked with a move for another of Chelsea's seemingly endless list of youngsters who spend time out on loan.
Saints fans may remember Izzy Brown from his time at Vitesse Arnhem on loan when he played against us, last season saw him at Huddersfield on loan and they are keen to take him back to Yorkshire next season.
But the problem is that Huddersfield intend to take Kasey Palmer on loan from Chelsea and under Premier League rules they can only take one loan player from a single club, this means that they would have to buy Brown and this is where it gets complicated.
The asking price is around £8 million and that looks a bargain, but the issue is likely to be that Brown may be unwilling to commit himself to the club who start as favourites for relegation straight back down.
This is where Saints come in, Brown would be far more open to move to St Mary's where he will be aware of the club's reputation for developing players and as an established Premier League side he will consider this to be an ideal move for him.
So far this is nothing more than a rumour in The Telegraph, however this suggests that the player's agent is manouevering to get his client a move away from Stamford Bridge and he doesn't fancy Huddersfield.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
