    Reliable sources up here say that if you don't accept our offer lallana put in a transfer request on his return from the World Cup. The good news for you is we aren't going to push the Lovren deal too much, if you don't accept then we have targets abroad.
    i wouldnt be so sure of that, remind me did Suarez leave last year when he handed in a transfer request no!!!! and spoke on live tv saying he wants out of liverpool? ahh yes i remember. so you liverpool fans have nowt to say. least with Lallana we made him the player he is, Suarez was top quility before you even brought him. their is no reliable source up there seeing as Lallana is a saints player and what the board says goes weather he hands in a request or not. any way go back to yor liverpool echo this is for saints fans not liverpool scum.... orr you could tell us a story about how to lose the premership title with 3 games to go :D go on would love to hear the sotry about how liverpool lost the league with 3 games to go... be an epic story that probs be a best seller.
    "weather he hands in a request or not"
    Come rain or shine? Ha ha.

    The thing with Suarez is that he was made to see that Liverpool were a team looking to improve the next season and were a team on the up.

    You have no chance persuading that to Adam when he can see everyone else around him wanting out including the owners.
    Dude the fact of the matter is if wanted to by are board we could easy do a " chelsea or manchester city " and dump you 1 more slot down the list of top 10.. if are board want to do it properly and not spend millions and millions on players you think you can come and taunt? if he hands in a request then he will nothing no one can do except do a liverpool and tell him he is not going? after all only one club i've ever heard of a club keeping a player against his will and thats liverpool lost count how many times both luke and Lallana have said they are more than happy staying at saints least Lallana has no publicly stated he WANTS to move unlike some liverpool players.... as for saurez he will be at reall madrid come next season so thats 30 goals and how many assists you got to replace? haha i would worry about ur own club losing its main player after all the best players for saints last year was cork and morgan in the defensive mid role Lallana willl be replaced by Ward prowse or Sims in due time if Lallana leaves' thanks for the 30 million ++ :) if he stays will still be happy so to be honest for us its a win win situation for you liverpool fans your still gonna lose saurez and not make champions league next year.
    Gave up reading half way through, if your going to take the time to write that much you could at least proof read it before posting."

Southampton say they have no need to accept offers for their players

Saints chairman Ralph Krueger

First published in Sport

Saints have issued a statement following the departure of Rickie Lambert to Liverpool, addressing the issue of transfers and the search for a new manager.

Here it is in full...

"Southampton Football Club can confirm that we have received multiple offers for some of our players in the past weeks. This is a confirmation of the depth of the development that is ongoing in our academy and of the present standing of our first team within the Premier League.

"We are staying true to our plan and vision and, as a result, we have no need to accept any offers.

"We are deep in the process of appointing a new manager who will continue to move our club forward.

"It remains our preference not to partake in any transfers until the new manager is in place.

"Our scouting & recruitment department continues to monitor targets we have identified to improve our squad, and the new manager will have final input into our recruitment process.

"However, Southampton Football Club can confirm that it has reached agreement with Liverpool for the transfer of Rickie Lambert.

"There may be circumstances under which the club will feel it is right for a player to move on. Those circumstances have to be right for the club and the player. This is the case with Rickie’s move to Liverpool.

"When Rickie Lambert requested to leave for Liverpool, the club felt it could not stand in the way of having him fulfil his boyhood dream of playing at home.

"It will be a big challenge to replace him and our intention is to source a quality replacement who will fill his shoes now but also for many years to come.

"Chairman Ralph Krueger commented: “On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Rickie. He served with distinction and helped to take Saints from League 1 to the Premier League.

“Rickie has been a shining light in Saints’ growth and will forever remain an icon in the history of the club. He leaves with the best wishes of everyone at Southampton and will always be welcome back at St Mary’s.”
