I guess this means Spurs have nipped in and poached Danso, like they did with Toby. 🙄

That's great negotiating by the recruitment team if so, and not much out the weekly wage budget!

£35,000 a year!, I earn more than that 😀

21 years old, no degree - that's a very decent starting salary!

An interesting synopsis from Hampshire Live on the conditions we'll have to satisfy to get Salisu a work permit for those, who like me, have always wondered how this works:

And here are the work permit rules which Southampton and Salisu must abide by to complete the transfer.

"Where applicable, a club’s application to register a player has to be accompanied by evidence to allow the League to demonstrate that the player may take up employment in the UK," a statement on the Premier League's website details.

"The League will not confirm the player is eligible to play for the club applying to register him until it has received such evidence. (Rule U.13)

"Players with passports from outside the European Union and the European Economic Area need permission to work in the UK.

A club needs to have applied for a permit prior to the window closing.

"The UK Home Office has a points-based system based on which clubs must apply to The FA for a "Governing Body Endorsement" for such players. (See p551 of the Premier League Handbook 2018/19)

"If the player does not automatically meet these criteria, the club can request an FA Exceptions Panel consider the player’s experience and value in order to determine whether a Governing Body Endorsement should nevertheless be granted."

It's probably £35k a week

Might be more than that. That £35k a week was taken from the AS report (€2m/(52*1.107) = £34.75k) but I know that Italian media always quote salaries net so you would have to add tax to get to the cost to the club. No sure if Spanish media to that too but if they do then with the top rate of income tax at 45% £34.75k/(1-0.45) = £63.18k.

This is where the whole thing from the French media that he would end up at Rennes because he wouldn't get a work permit is nonsense. Salisu doesn't meet the criteria to be automatically granted a Governing Body Endorsement but the FA Exceptions Panel always grant one for players like him.

Yep, £35k per week before tax for someone starting games for Saints is very low! We have a lot of players on significantly more than that. Salisu wouldn't be joining us even aged 21 to be sitting on the bench for long. Stephens and Bednarek may start the next campaign as they have a decent partnership and not too long between seasons to bed in Salisu, but I think Salisu would soon find his way into the team once the season is up and running.

Interesting. Not entirely correct with his info there... Unless we have another deal that is further down the line. I assumed the player i was told about was Salisu. If so...we are a lot further down the line than Dan suggests. Player in question was here at the start of the week...and wasnt just looking around etc

Was the inference in "wasn't just looking around" that he may have been training?  If so presume not Salisu as pretty sure he wouldn't be able to until he has a work permit.  If not then ignore me!

It is hard to take Football Insider seriously when their articles are riddled with errors. For example they keep writing articles about Saints & Salisu and say we've agreed to pay him £35k per year. Does no-one proof read for them?

What is the Football Insider? Is that an actual source, or is it a 12 year old kid

 

The author is a guy called Wayne Veysey who has done hundreds of articles for football insider, claims many of them as exclusives or sources tell them. I looked him up on twitter and he has 244 followers. Along with the fact he's said every day for 4 days in an "exclusive" that we are about to announce the Salisu signing sound like football insider about as accurate as the transfer tavern.

Yeah Football Insider is just regurgitating/fabrication stories to get ad revenue. Ignore it.

I think it is unlikely he is only on £21k per week. That is a tiny wage for a first team member in the Premier League.

If this guy is as potentially good as I’m reading then this is a massive coup. Clearly we will only get two or three seasons out of him if he gets anywhere near that level but we could have a hell of a player on our hands with potential to sell on for a huge profit in a few years. Good business.

I know little of Salisu, but one benefit of strengthening centre back is whether he’s hit or miss long term, we now have two decent, improved centre backs to fall back on in Stephens and Bednarek. If Salisu is first choice, I actually feel for the one that misses out as post-Leicester, Stephens improved and formed a good bond with Bednarek. 

 

Unless Leicester come back in for Vestergaard, surely he’s good enough as fourth choice? I’d say those four centre backs puts us in a strong position in that department.

If we can get anywhere near the numbers quoted for him I think wed be crazy not to sell. We aren't a team who should ever have a 4th cb worth £10m+ let alone £20m+. For a team of our size cb 4 should be a promising kid or a retiring club legend who isn't really up to it anymore. Liverpools 4th choice cb is going for 12m and they won the league!

In fairness I believe Bednarek is on similar.

Good bit of business and done early too.

Agree, whilst the fact its done early, and January links, also point towards him being a key target which bodes well.

If he does well initially then hopefully we give him a pay rise and add anither year or two to his contract to avoid another Clyne, Wanyama, Hojbjerg sale where the fee is reduced due to only having a year left. We have clearly been burned on long contracts to poor players, but I think we can be a bit more aggressive once a player has shown they are good enough. Bednarek for example. Leicester have done this well, with Chilwell and now Maddison signing new deals which basically guarentees a monster fee when they are sold. VVD a good example for us.

Having watched his videos I can't pay Salisu a higher compliment than the fact that he reminds me of a young Kolo Toure when he first broke into the Arsenal team.

Means nothing - players are signed outside of the transfer window all the time. They just cant play.
