    Good fee, very happy to see we are not paying over the odds.
    We are adding some much needed pace in the side too. Great stuff
    Is that a pathetic offer too?

    He is verified on Twitter, which adds some credibility. But hopefully so!

    It’s appeared in a couple of Belgian papers too (front page news)

    Sven Claes is a real writer for Het Belang van Limburg, a Dutch language regional newspaper in Belgium.

    IIRC, Sven Claes was the guy who reported Alderweireld to Saints and then subsequently to Spurs. So he's worth listening to

    Obligatory YouTube video. If we are signing him, I guess this means its curtains for Sims.

    Quick, good close ball control, a real handful. Mane Mk11?

    If we sign a player and he turns out to be good, I will have a nose bleed and withhold my cynicism for a day or two.

    8 goals in 32 in Belgium, and 3 in 5 in the Europa League. Not bad figures for a midfielder but I'll hold judgement after the Ely disaster.

    Will take time to adjust I think if we do sign him. Lets not forget how good Boufal looked on YouTube!

    It falls at the first hurdle - no mention of his hatred of Pompey

    Good strength and pace but some of the defending there is absolutely pathetic.

    Better not let him see the home shirt, he might change his mind.

    We’ve swung and missed on so many transfers of late that it’s hard to get excited anymore. But like the thinking behind the signing and think this is only the start of RH’s efforts to inject more pace and directness into the side.

    Pretty much how I feel.

    I’m also more confident that he’s coming to a team that have a definitive direction & idea now though.

    I'll go with it, only if it involves lots of really fast clapping out of sync with the song

    We're clearly buying potential, I'm not sure how much we'll see of him initially

    I agree - from what I've heard the plan is to unveil him one limb at a time.

    If he has pace and nothing else then he's one up on Moi already. I'll hold back on the excitement but we badly need some pace up front (from someone who's not Shane Long).

    He thinks Pompey are sh-the



    Or if there aren’t songs by other clubs we can sing badly simply

    Redmond said himself he feels his best position is central.

    Wouldnt be surprised if this guy is replacing him on the left.

    It'll be a signing to move to a 4222 with redders and a new striker up top and djenepo and JWP in the 2 behind. Probably with Armstrong boufal and maybe lookman providing competition for the 2 behind and obafemi and ings providing competition for the front lads.

    I doubt the club are pauing £20 million for Ings to just probvide competition for a new striker. I reckon Ings will turn out to be THE new striker

    Nor the £25m it would cost to bring in Lookman. If we were going to sign a new wide forward to provide cover, it would likely be the Austrian lad.

    Wait to see him play, of course.

    & we want him to be in the “targeted by big clubs in a year or 2” type signing, rather than the “how are we ever going to shift him” type.

    Surely the Saintsweb intelligentsia are wise enough to be able to judge him before they see him play rather than relying on hindsight in order to slag off the board....?

    Either way its a win win for the club bashers...……….

    If he`s a "Mane" the club can bashed for selling him on because he want to go...
    If he`s a "Hoedt" the club can be bashed because we can`t sell him

    Maybe, I imagine the new guy will be Adams and they will compete for the position. Redmond will be up top for me though as support striker, we have far too many people for the two behind for redmond to be there

    Yeah I've given up on YouTube vids. Moi's YouTube video, last summer, shows him banging in goals left right and centre in a lesser league. I've become a bit jaded with our signings last couple of seasons so I'll just wait and watch him in the flesh before I get excited.

    What about a 4-2-2-2

    Gunn

    Valery new CB Benerek Berty

    PEH Romeu

    Redmond Djenepo

    Ings Adams

    looks decent to me. With 2 quick players that like to run at defences we will at least be exciting to watch next season

    Will get completely overrun in midfield, give the ball away cheaply and concede loads of goals.

    Like this season.

    If he does play this formation, it’s probably going to be JWP and/or Lemina in behind Redmond and Adams/Ings

    Looks promising, but then so did Mayuka/Carillo/MOI etc.

    Hopefully this means MOI is out of the picture and good to see us getting business done early.

    Anyone looked him up on FIFA/Football Manager yet?

    Just to be clear, i don't think anyone thought Carillo looked promising at any point.

    Spoke to some Belgian friends about him recently (well actually I was mainly asking about Maehle because one of them is a Genk fan), but they sent me this link about Djenepo which isn't in English but the video shows some of his play.

    https://sporza.be/nl/2019/04/01/degr...dmilson-van-v/

    A few extra bits, either opinion from the Belgians or quotes from the article:

    "oh he is talented. He is described as a playful or even slightly crazy player but at the same time a really good guy"
    "at the end they say in the past year they have worked very hard on making him look around him while he's on the ball, because he used to stare into the ground too much. but they say they're now quite happy about his vision of the game, while still pulling off good dribbles"

    "he's more of an attacking midfielder or winger"

    Indeed. Apart from the Clown and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew.
