Saints boss Ronald Koeman set to miss out on reunion with Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar

Ronald Koeman looks unlikely to be reunited with his former centre-half Ron Vlaar this summer.

Saints have been linked with a move for the 29-year-old Dutch international, but Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has issued a hands-off warning to them.

Koeman had been quoted at the weekend as saying that Vlaar, who he worked with at Feyenoord, was an “option” if Dejan Lovren left the club.

However, the Saints boss distanced himself from those remarks this week, saying he had not spoken about the Villa captain, other than to say that he knew him.

While Vlaar enjoyed a fine World Cup with the Netherlands, it is understood that Saints do not see him as an ideal fit in terms of what they might need.

If Lovren does depart for Liverpool, as appears likely, then a left-sided centre half will be sought as a replacement.

Vlaar, who is a right-footed player, would not be a natural fit in that position.

Koeman has this week been linked with a second return to Feyenoord for another Dutch international centre-back, Terence Kongolo, having already signed striker Graziano Pelle from his previous club.

Kongolo, a 20-year-old left-footer, would be more in the mould of what Saints would require and, with his contract at the Rotterdam club entering its final year, he could be purchased for a reasonable price.

However, Feyenoord are understood to be confident of the player agreeing a new and improved deal this summer, and his presence was part of the reason why the Eredivisie club were willing to sell fellow Dutch international Bruno Martins Indi to Porto, while they may also allow Stefan de Vrij to leave.

De Vrij, who is also due to become a free agent next summer, is another who has been linked with Saints.

However, Manchester United are keen on the 22-year-old, while Italian club Lazio have already had an offer knocked back.

One player who does not appear to be going anywhere is Vlaar, with Villa boss Lambert making their position on the matter clear.

“Ron is not only an Aston Villa player, he is our captain,” he said, addressing the links to Saints.

“He has one year remaining on his contract — and he is staying here.

“We will be talking with him in due course about extending his deal and we are confident those talks will be positive.

“Ron has always said that he is really happy here — and has done nothing to suggest anything has changed.

“None of this speculation is coming from him, or anyone connected with him. We aren’t selling. It is as simple as that.”

Saints have also been linked with a move for Feyenoord’s Dutch international midfielder Jordy Clasie, although, as of yesterday, there had been no contact in relation to the 23-year-old.

As reported yesterday, the club are keen to wrap up deals for Celtic keeper Fraser Forster and Norwich winger Nathan Redmond this summer, and have already had bids rejected for both.

They also want a new left-back, to replace Luke Shaw, with Sporting Lisbon’s Argentina international Marcos Rojo having been mooted, as well as Nice’s Timothee Kolodziejczak.

Maybe the difference is that on occasion players are happy where they are. The problem is that Saints made such an impact last season the top four have coming calling on the door and certain players have had their heads turned. neither does it help to lose your chairman and manager as well. At the end of the day if a player wants to go he will go. There is little a club can do about it.
Koeman is building his own team and hopefully it will be a good team. Until we stabilise the club and Koeman proves on the pitch what we can do, there is going to be uncertainty. I think we have a strong manager and we need to keep him. Considering the disruption anything above mid table this season will be a bonus.
But yes I take the point we said we are not a selling club and we are selling, but I think the board have done the best they can to keep players. If I were Koeman i would still dangle the carrot under other teams noses, every player has a price and if it suits us then go for it. As for Feyenoord they have money troubles, if the price is right they will sell. Saints though are going to be linked with everyone because they still have a big transfer kitty. Most will just be rumors. Though it does seem true that Liverpool have made their last offer 20 mil for Lovren and have said its still on the table if Saints want it and are leaving the player to try and push it through.

It's a waiting game, it isn't as simple as just deciding who we want and buying them. Most top players will have a few teams after them, some are likely to be bigger than us. So the players wait to see the best team they can join. For example, de Vrij is wanted by us and maybe Man Utd, he waits to see if Utd are serious, and if so he joins them, if not then he will start to look at other options I.e. Saints

We have to wait for the big boys to sign everyone they want, then we get to go for the best of the rest. It's a Merry-go-round and we aren't first in line to choose so we have to wait. Be patient!

The way things are going its bottom end of the Premiership this year. The Club has suddenly become a gutless outfit and others are bound to go as things stand. All the talk from Kruger and Reed early on has proved worthless. At the very least they should make a clear statement of the clubs intentions to the fans of the way things are going. Offer a refund of season ticket funds to those who have so clearly been misled.

I have noticed how the rumour about Vlaar could be started by the Media and Journalist then gets blown out of all proportions after reading that Ronald Koeman said he knows the Player and has Coached him, it will soon come to the point that Managers will refuse interviews for fear of saying any compliment about a Player that immediately assumes a transfer is imminent.

By the way we need a right sided as well as a left sided CB so don't let his feet put you off. Everyone seems to forget Fonte's place was one of the three identified for strengthening to push on for Europe, an ambition Ralph stated was still very much alive.

Sammy lives in Melbourne.
RS, if nobrains does live in Melbourne then he was still up early, posted on here at 8:45PM yesterday which would have been 5:45am in Melbourne. He has a history of posting all through the evening here which at the current time difference, as you will know, will mean he post all through the small hours there!
Probably can't sleep because he's kept awake thinking up more ridiculous things to say.

Hey Lambert. What's it got to do with you. Keep your nose out of our club's affairs. Fact is that with the signings Villa have made they must be one of the favourites for relegation.

Not sure anyone has actually, just a bit of a non-story.
There's not much to discuss when the story relates to a player who is not actually joining our club so people tend to just post rubbish, myself and you two included.

I think the idea of season long loans for a couple of quality players has some merit in our current predicament. We need to replenish the squad and quickly, this may take some pressure off filling all the recognised gaps long term. Other teams have done it to their advantage, Everton being an example last year with Lukaku and Barry having stellar seasons for them.

Barry's staying, but will they recover from losing Lukaku? They also won't be able to make any money by selling him to fund signing a replacement, like we will if we sell Lovren.

I have noticed how the rumour about Vlaar could be started by the Media and Journalist then gets blown out of all proportions after reading that Ronald Koeman said he knows the Player and has Coached him, it will soon come to the point that Managers will refuse interviews for fear of saying any compliment about a Player that immediately assumes a transfer is imminent.
Sammy lives in Melbourne.
RS, if nobrains does live in Melbourne then he was still up early, posted on here at 8:45PM yesterday which would have been 5:45am in Melbourne. He has a history of posting all through the evening here which at the current time difference, as you will know, will mean he post all through the small hours there!
God give it a rest.you can't get your head around him living over there can you? It comes over as jealousy.have you also noticed that you are the only one who keeps banging on about the thumbs up.your like the kid that didn't get the gold star.
ooppss ive offended his alter ego, or should I say one of them! next up gormless. tell me Sammy are they names you invented or are they munchkin names?

your right I cant get my head around a person who lives in oz yet spends several hundred pounds a year to buy a season ticket so that someone else can use it for 17-19 games whilst he gets the benefit once or twice a season! unless hes loaded, and I mean really loaded, it makes absolutely no sense, add an N and it becomes nonsense, coincidence? Sammy if you want to play with the thumbs up/down ive told you to knock yourself out, everyone knows your doing it, I just like to mention it now and again in case people haven't been on here for a while and see a nonsense post get 30+ votes whilst sensible posts, not mine ive never been sensible, get 30- votes and think the sites gone down the toilet!
jealous of living in oz? no not me, I have had many chances to live over there and have lots of family over there willing to sponsor me, but my hearts always been in little old Southampton.

Who is Les Read?
Executive director of Southampton football club. But you knew that didn't you Osprey?
Has their been a slight speeling mistake again?
Just to clarify, Les Reed was appointed Head of Football Development and Support at Southampton, overseeing four main areas: the Youth Academy, Scouting and Recruitment, Sports medicine and Science, and Kit and Equipment Management. He is now Executive Director of the Club and one of four members of the Board.
I had to look it up because I had forgotten what it was that he is supposed to be doing!

I tried to find out what the Ralph Krueger designated role was, Although he was made Chairman to help Kat run the Club, his actual involvement in the football side of things hasn't been clarified in any of articles that I found.

So I guess that any signings will be done through RonKo and Les Reed, with the final stamp coming from Kat and Ralph / The Board?

Having come to that conclusion I am now at a loss, as to why things are taking so long and why are we not being kept up to speed. I am willing to support what they do, but it is difficult to back them up when you haven't got anything with which to fight off the detractors, who, by the way, have every right to question the lack of an perceivable action. If you don't ask the right questions you will never get any answers.

Once Ron has finished buying, or being linked with everyone from his previous team I hope we will see him showing his mettle in a wider global market. I liked the idea of the Celtic goalie but that seems to be unlilkely.

I think the idea of season long loans for a couple of quality players has some merit in our current predicament. We need to replenish the squad and quickly, this may take some pressure off filling all the recognised gaps long term. Other teams have done it to their advantage, Everton being an example last year with Lukaku and Barry having stellar seasons for them.
Barry's staying, but will they recover from losing Lukaku? They also won't be able to make any money by selling him to fund signing a replacement, like we will if we sell Lovren.
The loans for Everton I would say had a significant impact on their decent league position. We’ve made enough money already in recent outgoings, so I don’t see funds as the issue but more the lack of time left in the transfer window. Panic buys will not help, that’s why I say a couple of loans could be a valid option to take the pressure off.
Let’s hope Ron is given the support he was promised and that we can all start enjoying our football again.

Sammy, are you out there? In which Melbourne suburb do you live? It's a while since I lived in Melbourne but I have a reasonable knowledge of the place, so I should be able to ask you a reasonable question about most suburbs.

Come on, Sammy, prove me right on this. It could be the one time in history we actually agree with each other.

Generally with you on that, RS. I'd sooner buy a decent player or two than bring someone in whose commitment is elsewhere.

The bigger issue, though, as Mush said, is that panic buys are not the answer and, as we're all beginning to see, the longer the club goes, the more desperate the club will be - or will appear to be. Thus, the more hardball other clubs will get. And it's NOT being negative to admit that THAT would not be good business.

Why don,t we all wake up to the fact that these offers for players are all token gestures. WE ARE NOT SIGNING ANYONE ELSE! What we see is what we will get. Probably one more season in the PL, and then Championship football.with a few canings thrown in for good measure. If we finish outside the bottom 3 Iwill consider it a good season.

By the way we need a right sided as well as a left sided CB so don't let his feet put you off. Everyone seems to forget Fonte's place was one of the three identified for strengthening to push on for Europe, an ambition Ralph stated was still very much alive.
I don't think we at any point said X was not for sale Seedhouse, that's the key thing. The closest we got to being 100% resolute in our statements was when Katherina said that players would not be sold without Poch agreeing to the sales. Les and Ralph on the other hand both made statements saying we didn't NEED to sell, but never said players were not for sale or weren't going anywhere. They possibly said they weren't going anywhere on the cheap, but there has always been a 'we don't want to sell anymore, but we might be open to offers' message coming out from St. Marys and that hasn't changed.

That's the problem I think. Celtic seem to be being similarly weak on Forster, while I admire Villa giving a stone cold 'don't waste your time'.

I'd be surprised if he leaves.

Thus I expect us to sign Forster, but I doubt Vlaar will go anywhere.

Saints example isn't isolated though - the exodus at Swansea has been slightly overlooked by the media and West Brom have quietly being downsizing significantly.

Your post is 100% accurate and well thought out, but for two basic spelling errors. Please substitute 'the PL' for 'League 2' and Championship for 'Non-league'. But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and guess you've got 'auto-correct' switched on.

Sammy, are you out there? In which Melbourne suburb do you live? It's a while since I lived in Melbourne but I have a reasonable knowledge of the place, so I should be able to ask you a reasonable question about most suburbs.

Come on, Sammy, prove me right on this. It could be the one time in history we actually agree with each other.

I think the idea of season long loans for a couple of quality players has some merit in our current predicament. We need to replenish the squad and quickly, this may take some pressure off filling all the recognised gaps long term. Other teams have done it to their advantage, Everton being an example last year with Lukaku and Barry having stellar seasons for them.
Barry's staying, but will they recover from losing Lukaku? They also won't be able to make any money by selling him to fund signing a replacement, like we will if we sell Lovren.
The loans for Everton I would say had a significant impact on their decent league position. We’ve made enough money already in recent outgoings, so I don’t see funds as the issue but more the lack of time left in the transfer window. Panic buys will not help, that’s why I say a couple of loans could be a valid option to take the pressure off.
Let’s hope Ron is given the support he was promised and that we can all start enjoying our football again.
I see where you're coming from, but I still don't like loans. I do however also hope that "Ron is given the support he was promised and that we can all start enjoying our football again."
Generally with you on that, RS. I'd sooner buy a decent player or two than bring someone in whose commitment is elsewhere.

The bigger issue, though, as Mush said, is that panic buys are not the answer and, as we're all beginning to see, the longer the club goes, the more desperate the club will be - or will appear to be. Thus, the more hardball other clubs will get. And it's NOT being negative to admit that THAT would not be good business.
I think last summer, we made only one early signing, Lovren. Just because, time before the start of the season is getting short, it isn't inevitable that late signings are going to be panic buys. Wanyama, certainly wasn't.

BTW, my plans are to go to Liverpool, West Ham and Swansea (if I can get tickets), and Albion and Newcastle.

I posted this on a dead thread yesterday - so here goes again. Just instead in other peoples opinions really.

If you think about the new signings for a minute. We have replaced RL with a younger, more prolific more mobile model. No problem.

We have replaced AL with more experienced player who has been scoring a goal every 2 1/2 games compared to AL's 1 in 4. No problem

We haven't replaced LK - but some are suggesting that Targett is an even better player. Targett will improve this year - but will it be enough for a new youngster to the team? I think he needs a more mature player to compete with. This position is a slight problem at the mo.

If Lovren goes we need to get some quality in quickly. This position will be the major problem for our team - as a defensive unit needs time to gel.


I am assuming that that Tadic and Pelle gel fairly quickly, and that Morgan doesn't leave

One answer to getting a team to gel quickly is to buy more than one player from the same club ala Brendan Rogers.

Therefore I would not be surprised to see more players from Twente or Feyenoord arriving - or dutchmen

Glad you worked out the thinking behind brendan taking on 2 players from Saint's . You are the only person on this posting to fully understand the logic behind this tactic.

My advice to others on this posting is, don't under any circumstances under-estimate Brendan Rodgers, he knows what he is doing.

It's a pity that those in charge of Saint's don't seem to have the slightest clue and will shortly be running out of time to prepare any new signing ( if you ever get anymore ), to gel with the existing players before the start of the new season.

My thoughts entirely. With all the negativity surrounding our club at this moment I just wonder how Ron and his brother can remain so cheerful. Have they got something up their sleeves. Hope so I am just about at the end of my tether. It just all seems one long bad dream.
Maybe Ron and brother might be able to remain cheerful because they know things you and the rest of us don't.
Well said Rising,I (personally) still have a good feeling about the Koemans, and if anything should go wrong,I dont think it will be as a result of anything they might do.
It's nothing to do with the Koemans that is causing concern though is it? I have complete faith in the guy, but what I am concerned about is that the club is still pretending to have European aspirations while clearly not backing it up with action.

The only thing I think Ron knows that we don't is what he's got to work with and, frankly, based on his statements so far it is very, very clear that incomings seem to be heavily linked to who ends up getting their wish to leave, not on who we think will elevate us to the next level and increase the quality of our squad (not patch up the holes).

We desperately need a Lukaku/Bony/Remy quality striker to replace Rickie. Pelle might be it, but we can't bet everything on him. We need a sure-fire hit, 15-goal a season man.

We also need a proven defender who wins us matches to play alongside Lovren, not replace him.

To be honest all the evidence so far (and the fact we probably know the Saints squad better than anyone on the board or current management team bar possibly Les Reed) suggest that the fans know more than the rest of them, not the other way round.

Sorry the question has already been answered, 15 years old, hardly Premiership material is he? Nevertheless he looks to be a good prospect, we might be neglecting the present a little, but still preparing for the future it seems.

I have noticed how the rumour about Vlaar could be started by the Media and Journalist then gets blown out of all proportions after reading that Ronald Koeman said he knows the Player and has Coached him, it will soon come to the point that Managers will refuse interviews for fear of saying any compliment about a Player that immediately assumes a transfer is imminent.
Sammy lives in Melbourne.
RS, if nobrains does live in Melbourne then he was still up early, posted on here at 8:45PM yesterday which would have been 5:45am in Melbourne. He has a history of posting all through the evening here which at the current time difference, as you will know, will mean he post all through the small hours there!
God give it a rest.you can't get your head around him living over there can you? It comes over as jealousy.have you also noticed that you are the only one who keeps banging on about the thumbs up.your like the kid that didn't get the gold star.
Well, let's just try to sort this one out. Does Sammy live in Melbourne (as I think he does) or does he live much closer to home?

Sammy, are you out there? In which Melbourne suburb do you live? It's a while since I lived in Melbourne but I have a reasonable knowledge of the place, so I should be able to ask you a reasonable question about most suburbs.

Come on, Sammy, prove me right on this. It could be the one time in history we actually agree with each other.
Sammy won't be back on this site.he has been banned.he just texted me.
We both live in suburbs of melbourne,Sammy lives in northcote and I live further north in reservoir.ask away Strasbourg but you may get my reply in about 9 hours as I am going to bed,have to be up 4.30.dont know how I can prove we live in melbourne? But ask whatever you like but try and make it something only a local would know.
Banned, that seems harsh, I enjoyed the banter, no doubt he will be back with a new sign on and more rubbish posting. Some think he already has, I wonder who? Hmmmmmmmmm.

Well, let's just try to sort this one out. Does Sammy live in Melbourne (as I think he does) or does he live much closer to home?

Sammy, are you out there? In which Melbourne suburb do you live? It's a while since I lived in Melbourne but I have a reasonable knowledge of the place, so I should be able to ask you a reasonable question about most suburbs.

Come on, Sammy, prove me right on this. It could be the one time in history we actually agree with each other.

But ask whatever you like but try and make it something only a local would know.
I don't give a pig's 4rse about Sammy being banned, he'll still be on here wasting his life on the thumbs buttons and, as I said, I never doubted that he lives in Melbourne. At least we now know you're his chum and stick up for him because of that rather than forming your own opinions.

As for a question about Melbourne, maybe you could tell us where people traditional wait when they want to meet friends in the centre of the city and what pub is opposite that point.

You could also tell us what football team you and your chum actually support because you appear to have one key thing in common - a loathing of Saints fans.

Ta! Although it proves nothing, answering the first two questions correctly and not answering the third strongly suggests all that I thought:
1. You both live in Melbourne.
2. You don't support The Saints.

Now that Sammy's gone, I guess you've little need to be on here in future, so, so long and thanks for all the fish.
