Described on SKY sports news this AM as one of the most effective players in the premiership and underrated. They also said he is on the radar of several big clubs in the prem and Eu leagues. Let's see how many times the gossip mill transfers him before the start of the season. We do need another CB to cover and/or play alongside him we do not need to replace him - not sure there is a replacement in Saints price range.
Good classy old style CB.

Well done Dejan you deserve it.
Ups Saints profile a bit more, the more representing us at the World Cup the better.
If you all stick together and we add a few more quality players then you can all get Saints to the Champions League next season.

Could do worse - I reckon he's good for one maybe two seasons at premier level. Can't fault the man's pedigree. A good enough rumour to start - nice one.
