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.

Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
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.
