Saints Planning Another Raid On Celtic
Monday, 3rd Jul 2017 10:55
Arron Sanders takes a look at another possible shopping trip to Celtic who must now be feeling that we are as bad as Liverpool are to us in keeping buying players off them
According to reports, Southampton have been linked with another raid on Celtic, this time for highly-rated midfielder Stuart Armstrong.
But Saints would have to cough up £10 million for the 25-year-old Scotland international who has played over 200 games for both Celtic and his former team Dundee United.
As with previous transfers between the clubs Celtic are going to want to hang on to their best players until after the Champions League qualifiers are over.
And if Celtic were to sell the former Dundee United ace if would not be until late in the transfer window as the Virgil Van Dijk transfers and others were over previous seasons.
Saints have a good record when it comes to the quality of signings from The Hoops, should Armstrong replicate that fact then we would be getting a great deal for the fee quoted.
What do you make of this latest rumoured transfer target? Would you welcome the signing of Stuart Armstrong to St Mary's?

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.
