Jannik Vestergaard - Official: Signs for Leicester

 but I still think he should do better aerially given his height,

Whilst I tend to agree that he should be better, particularly last season defensively, the photo above jumping with Kane shows that he can do it. I've always thought that it's his timing, not his actual jumping ability, that is lacking a bit.

Spurs rejected by their main target, hope that triggers a panic buy for a certain lofty Dane.

It’d actually be pretty comical if, in order to try and get away from mid table, they ended up signing 2 players and a manager from mid table sides…

I think there are plenty of players and managers in at mid table sides right now that are europa/CL quality: Grealish, Raphinha, Ings, Bissouma, White, Potter, Bielsa, Ralph, ect.

You have to sign the right ones and Vestergaard is most certainly not that, and neither is Nuno imo. Then again, I said the same about Hojbjerg and they seem to like him so who knows.

What other business are Spurs likely to do this summer?

Spurs are still hopeful of bringing in at least one more centre-back, with Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, Inter’s Milan Skriniar and Jannik Vestergaard of Southampton among their targets.

They also hope to shift some of their existing defenders, with Aurier and Davinson Sanchez both available. Toby Alderweireld, as The Athletic reported this month, is hoping to leave before the end of the window.

Headline today is that Saints are reluctant to deal with Spurs, after getting hurt on the Hoejberg deal. Problem is they are circling for both Vesty and Ings. We need other bidders ASAP.

I don't see the hurt there. Maybe Fourpast, Bale, Chivers and Toby.

Don't forget the Hoddle rumpus. Think Rupert got that one right.

And Dean Richards in his prime, how about him alongside Salisu now?

I think we won there. We got a decent fee for him. And he didn't have a great career with them, plagued by injuries.

Passed away so young. 🙁

He has liked a post confirming Sons contract extension 👋🏻

This is the sort of gossip this forum is made for. Juicy drama!

Hope he goes tbh, Salisu is quality and the money could buy us a pretty tasty attacking mid.

Those crazy Spurs loving Danes!  Isn't this how it started with Hojbjerg?

Vaguely remember something like that!

If we can get good funds for Vestergaard, in a weird way I think it can make us stronger.

Agree.  Economics, right? We can’t make the signings we need without selling he or Ingsey.  Was hoping Roma got him.

Buy low, sell high. Vest ain't getting higher than this (the low part is debateable though)

I'm surprised Son hasn't been linked to a bigger club to be honest or wanted to move.

He will be the main Man/Striker now

He has always done well when Kane has been injured and out of the team tbh

Going to be interesting how Ralph answers questions on Ings when it comes to players on last year of their deal re: Vesty.

I suppose it's the same as it's always been - if you get an acceptable bid, then we look at it (take it!)

From a sensible perspective its surely at a stage where you hope we can sell Vestergaard in this window as we should at least get our money back.

Fail to do so and its probably £5m or so in January or nothing next summer, with potentially a season of an unsettled player.

Get it sorted now and move on.

We've read about the talk of interest in him from all over, but nothing seems to of come out yet. (perhaps not surprising considering the Ings / Livramento stealth moves).

Pretty sure Spurs are out.  Roma possible.  Maybe Leicester now.  His performances at the Euro's must have garnered some interest.

I have selected him in my Fantasy Football team, on the basis that he will be playing for Leicester.

I'd try and sell him now whilst we can. We'd then have £55-60 million in sales from the summer. You'd like to think we would re-invest most of that on at least 3 new players (Striker, CB & CM)

Let’s hope if this happens we get a repeat of Ings, VVD and Armstrong rather than Carillo, Hoedt and Lemina. 
 

I’m sure it’ll be the first 3!!!!

Don't forget we've already spent circa £15million on Perraud, Simeu and Livramento.

Indeed, just means the recruitment is going to have to be spot on.

Has he even been really involved pre-season? Not seen him about (I know he came back late) but I get the impression Ralph seems to be planning without him.

He only started training after his holiday 3 days ago.

Leicester writer on the athletic says they will need a defender for sure but finances are tight.

Fofana not the only injury they have back there.  Evans hadn’t trained pre-season.

Evans is out for 2-3 months, they're looking at starting the season with either a young kid Nelson or NDidi apparently.

Obviously they're down Wes Morgan as well.

What’s happening with Diiop there I rated him but saw linked away?

They're trying to get rid of him....not been the same last season supposedly. Dawson came in and nicked his place.
