    Looks like this one might get done so creating a thread for him.

    On the face of it a typical Saints signing. Mid teens 's, early twenties and international player having played in a major league.

    Team effort. Just need St David scouting for Paul Allen's yacht and it will be like the old days!

    This is when he confirms that he's actually landed in Liverpool.

    Pellegrino essentially said it was "80% done" during the press conference.

    All he said was he knows the player didn't he?

    He didn't know Lemina and that was done the next day.

    For what it's worth, Sky reporting deal not completed but the player has had a medical so it sounds promising.

    Don't know if they've cut bits out of post press conference media. But he definitely said it s 80% done on the Livestream.

    On one hand I'm excited as he looks like a good player, and also shows we're making an effort to improve a slightly dodgy area of the team, bearing in mind van Dijk's situation. Also it makes sense to pre-empt van Dijk leaving, even if his departure isn't till next summer.

    On the other hand, from what I saw on the video and what I have read from any Lazio fans' critique, I'm a little concerned that we are signing a player who doesn't excel at any of the things Yoshida and Stephens struggle with. If anything, it sounds like he also struggles with them. Hopefully I'm either wrong or it's not important because he's partnering van Dijk for most of the campaign.

    The pros definitely outweigh the cons though, so hoping we get this over the line.

    I think people just tend to need a break from the extreme socialist nature of the site, and Barry Sanchez's rampant racism...

    Is he quite physical?

    Something Stephens and Yoshida lack, seem to be very nice to play against.

    I'd like to think he will be the first part of replacing our present duo of Yoshida and Stephens. Next one, Wimmer?
    Wimmer and Hoetd would be a solid pair IMO

    Why don't you believe the club when they said van Dijk isn't going to be sold? A day after new owners, Krueger's statement yesterday would look ridiculous if they u-turn on it.

    Which will be fine, as long as you steer clear of the Terrorism thread!

    No, what I believe he said was that transfers are either 0% or 100%, there is no "80% or 90%" complete.

    No he definitely said its 80% done. then he realised his error, rolled back, and said it's never done until it's done.

    I think he then backtracked to say 0% or 100%.

    I read somewhere that he won a higher percentage of aerial duels than any other defender in Serie A last season. Admittedly he didn't get that many games, but that's certainly the key thing that a Stephens-Yoshi paring lacks. On the downside, he's not that quick.

    i hope Hoot comes and does well, if so it is a great sign that we are adding to our squad and using the summer to strengthen not weaken. This has taken many awful summers but the day seems to have arrived. My only worry is that Young Jack Stephens will suffer a setback and maybe Yoshi as well. They have been terrific in difficult times, hope they are truly professional and not quitters cos we still need them.

    Ah ok, that's good news, thanks. I was thinking that his ability in the air is the key unknown (to me at least!) that would make it a lot more positive.

    Ok fair enough. I remember him saying 80%/90% and thinking it was good news but then his next sentence seemed to contradict that so thought I must have misheard.

    No u-turn at all, but I'd like to take Van Dijk out of the equation altogether, whether he's sold or not he has proved unworthy of anyone's trust. But if Hoetd joins I would definitely like VvD gone before he can turn his fellow countymans head, or worse still introduce him to his agent.

    On the other hand, we could hope he is 5h!t so that nobody is interested in him.
