Eintracht Frankfurt Turn Down Bid For Saints Target
Tuesday, 1st Sep 2020 17:18

Media reports in Germany are saying that Eintracht Frankfurt have rejected a significant bid from an English club for Southampton linked defender Martin Hinteregger.

Central defender Martin Hinteregger has been linked with a move to St Mary's and now according to German daily the Frankfurter Rundschau, Eintracht Frankfurt have rejected a bid worth €20m from an unnamed English club.

Whether that club is Saints or not is not mentioned, but It has been claimed that Eintracht Frankfurt have ruled out selling the defender and wasted little time in rejecting the offer.

The Bundesliga side signed him from Augsburg on loan in January 2019 before making the deal permanent later in summer for €9m, but what might put Saints off is the players age, he will turn 28 next week, some will say that the Saints policy is not to sign anyone over 25/26, but the reality is that Saints need some experience in the centre of the back four and Hinteregger will be well known to Ralph Hasenhuttl, but whether he will break from the blueprint to sign his fellow Austrian is yet to be seen.

I mean yeah the more the merrier, but if we’ve got 20 mill then why the hell aren’t we spending it on a central midfielder to replace Hojbjerg!? I mean we’ve got 4 decent centre backs but only 2 decent midfielders as smallbone is still young and if Romou or Prowse get injured then a lot of pressure on him. I mean we really need a centre mid and until we get one I don’t really care too much about any other positions I’m which we weak at!

He is a left sided centre-back. We just signed one of those. I didn't believe this one from the first I saw it. Agree focus needs to be on a PEH replacement and it probably is.
