Perspective at Southampton


Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle

It is worth remembering that Southampton have spent some of their large income from sales on Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle.

Nonetheless, the club's successful eighth-place finish in last season's Premier League has seemingly made them a go-to resource for clubs seeking fresh talent.

"Everybody at the club is continuing to work hard on bringing in quality players," says executive director Les Reed. "It is important in the transfer window to remain clam, resilient and above all patient."

Wenger pleased with acquisition

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had said the signing of Chambers was "a gamble", given the youngster's humble amount of Premier League exposure.

Tristan Earl: Keeping players who don't want to play for you? It's counter-productive AND we have the best academy in the UK to fall back on.

James Maher: How many more players do Saints need to sell before they can afford to bring back Gareth Bale?

Matt Jackson: None of the Saints players have been pushed out of the door each of them demanded a move, no loyalty. All of em' overpriced.

Redknapp perplexed by Remy transfer


More now from Harry Redknapp on the collapse of Loic Remy's move to Liverpool: "There must have been a breakdown or they've changed their mind or they've decided to move in another direction.

Calum Chambers is set to be the 10th player to leave the south coast outfit this summer so we're asking whether Southampton's sale of so many players is a masterplan or madness? Tweet us on #bbcsportsday or text 81111.

Matt Edwards: I dont think you can judge until end of window, definitely getting good price on all sales, just waiting for Koeman to get his players in.

Colm McNabola: New season only a few weeks away and Koeman hasn't replaced any of the players with quality. Long season ahead for Saints.

Queens Park Rangers

Rio Ferdinand has been presented as a Queens Park Rangers player.

The 35-year-old signed a one-year deal to join his former West Ham manager Harry Redknapp earlier this month and says staying in the division is the priority for the side this season.

"There were Premier League clubs interested but once Harry made the call my mind was made up," says Ferdinand.

On the hour update...


Transfers are beginning to arrive with more frequency and

Antoine's Griezmann's move from Real Sociedad to Atletico Madrid is the biggest deal agreed on Monday.

Elsewhere, Esteban Granero will leave QPR for Sociedad, Swansea say Wilfried Bony is staying put and there is confusion over a Sheffield United defender.

Harry Maguire is leaving for Hull according to the Blades but the Premier League club say their last bid was rejected on Wednesday.

Redknapp confirms Granero deal


Redknapp also confirms a fee has been agreed for midfielder Esteban Granero to leave the club and join Real Sociedad.

Granero, 27, joined Rangers from Real Madrid in 2012 but played just 25 league games for west London club before spending time on loan with Sociedad last season.

"I wish him well, a great lad and fantastic boy," says Redknapp.

Remy return to Rangers


Loic Remy

Harry Redknapp confirms Loic Remy will return to Queens Park Rangers.

The Frenchman, 27, saw a move to

Liverpool collapse over the weekend, with a failed medical the reported reason for the breakdown.

"He is a fantastic striker," Redknapp tells a news conference.

"Reports have come out he failed a medical. That's not possible. He is a very fit lad, there has to be another reason."


Great Britain's eventing squad suffer a second major blow ahead of their world title defence in France next month.

Craig Etherington: Madness - why spend years building an excellent young team, only to sell everyone who has stood out. Statement of intent.

Prongs: Villa finished sixth and three years in a row we sold Milner, Barry, Young, Downing, Cahill and Friedel. Now we fight relegation.

Davies sympathy for Saints


Former Southampton striker Kevin Davies says the club is a "victim of its own success" as another young talent looks set to leave St Mary's.


Calum Chambers is expected to join Arsenal today and nine other players have already left the club this summer, including Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren and Luke Shaw.

"It will have an effect, there is no doubt about that, but they have got a manager in there in Ronald Koeman who is a fantastic name," Davies

tells Talksport.

"I think, as fans, sometimes you need you take a reality check. Four years ago they were winning the Johnstone's Paint Trophy."

Stoke still want Oussama


Stoke manager Mark Hughes is still chasing the signature of Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi.

The Morocco international, 25, spent last season on loan with the Potters and has a £7m price tag according to the Reds, a figure which has reportedly proven a stumbling block.

"It's on-going and these things happen. Everybody knows we are interested and that is still the case," Hughes tells The Sentinel.

As Arsenal close in on Calum Chambers, Southampton look poised to lose a 10th player of the summer transfer window. Over £70m has flowed into the coffers at St Mary's, so is this strategy madness or a masterplan?

What impact will it have and can you remember a transfer window where one club has been so central to activity?

On the hour update...


The biggest transfer news of Monday so far sees a deal agreed for France striker Antoine Griezmann to join Atletico Madrid.

Elsewhere, Hull City have been left confused by Sheffield United's comments on a deal being agreed for Harry Maguire. The Premier League club say their last bid was rejected.

A women's Team Sky offering

Road Cycling

Two-time Olympic track champion Victoria Pendleton reacts to Dave Brailsford's comments: "I think it's very exciting news. The problem with women's road cycling is not just having one exciting team, they have to have other teams to compete against. Maybe this will inspire others. It is great news for women's sport."

Women's Team Sky possible

Road Cycling

Sir Dave Brailsford says he has "talked a lot" about the prospect of

setting up a female Team Sky operation.

Less than 24 hours after Dutch world and Olympic champion Marianne Vos won the first ever one-day La Course by Le Tour de France in Paris, Brailsford said there was a desire to create "greater parity".

"We all are very aware that there needs to be a greater parity, not just in road cycling but across all disciplines, both at Olympic and professional level," said Brailsford, 50.

Bony going nowhere


Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony is "not for sale", according to manager Garry Monk.

The 25-year-old, who signed for a club record £12m in July 2013, scored 25 goals in his first season with the Swans and has been linked with a move away from the club.

"At the end of the day he's not for sale, unless someone comes in with an astronomical offer,"

says Monk.
