Klopp better not loan us Adrian

If it’s for a couple of weeks, it’s a better option than Lewis. 
 

If an emergency loan is going to happen it needs to be from a club we’re not playing in the next couple of weeks, or it completely defeats the object.

From FB:- 

Reports: Southampton are weighing up a move for former Man City and Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero to solve their crisis.

The 40-year-old veteran is a free agent since leaving Chelsea at the end of last season after rejecting a new contract from the club.

If he’s free then he can sign tomorrow.

"Willy Caballero set for Southampton medical tomorrow ahead of signing a short-term deal following injuries to Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster.

The 40-year-old Argentine has been training with AFC Wimbledon to keep himself fit and key figures at the club acted quickly to wrap up a deal on Sunday.

Caballero was keen to join as soon as he heard about the opportunity and one of the key attractions for Southampton was that his style will fit into the club’s goalkeeping playbook."

In a way it's a shame we have Broja from Chelsea so can't loan another player from them.

Otherwise Marcus Betternelli would have been perfect. More recent playing experience than other options and still in prime of career.

Was highly rated at one point. I wondered what had happened to him, but obviously off the radar as far as we're concerned.

"his style will fit into the club’s goalkeeping playbook." - picking the ball out of the net? Leaving huge gaps at near post? Not being able to distribute/command his area. Will fit right in. Still, it's an advance. Our goalkeeping staff will soon make him crap...(can't help thinking that's where the issue is - Kelvin is clearly pretty useless)

Caballero is pretty decent though. A step up, no matter his age
