Promes Deal Unlikely
Wednesday, 31st Jan 2018 10:37
According to Sky Sports a deal for Quincy Promes is unlikely to happen for reasons beyond Saints control.
It seems that the issue with Saints signing Quincy Promes is not so much one of Spartak Moscow's asking price not being met by Saints nor the player being unwilling to join, but according to Sky Sports the fact that the Russian club are unable to find a replacement for him.
Sky say Saints have matched the asking price, but now Spartak are baulking at the deal claiming they want a replacement in place before they let him go.
They have had plenty of time to do so given Saints lont term connection to him, but they just don't seem to want to let him go as was evidenced from recent leaks to the Russian football media suggesting the Promes did not want to leave, later rubbished by the player himself on his social media.
So it seems that Spartak are trying their best to scupper the move, however it could be just a tactic to get a bigger fee, it will now depend on whether the player himself puts pressure on the club and Saints up their offer to persuade Spartak that it is an offer they can't refuse.

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.
