Late Loan Moves For Saints Trio
Monday, 2nd Sep 2019 12:33
One Saints player has already completed his loan move contract today, joining Guido Carrillo who left for Leganes yesterday and another two are likely to follow suit shortly.
Jake Hesketh has joined Lincoln City on loan for the rest of the season and he is likely to be joined by both Mario Lemina & Wesley Hoedt before the European transfer window closes.
Lemina, who has beenin conflict with Saints all summer, looks set to join Turkish side Galatasaray for the rest of the campaign, not the big club move his agent had clearly promised him.
Hoedt is set to join Belgium side Antwerp and although he does not seem to be in conflict with Saints as per Lemina it is clear he has had enough at St Mary's and wants away, the loan move will have an option to buy if his time there is successful.
Saints would have ideally liked to have been able to get rid of at least a couple on a permanent move, but clearly the players salary's are an issue for a buying club, so Saints have to be content with knocking a fair few quid off the wage bill for the season, if they only get £100k a week off the bill that is still a saving of £5 million or so over the season and is a significant amount.

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.

Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Doncaster 8/1/93 by wessex_exile
With school half-term upon me, and with much to do before leaving early for Crawley on Tuesday night, I’m going to have to post this one a bit early I’m afraid.
Matches of Yesteryear - Bees v U's 31/12/05 by wessex_exile
Well here’s a first, the random match selector has chosen the very next match I was at following Shrewsbury in the FA Cup back in December 2005 – spooky.
