Southampton must trust Hasenhuttl in pursuit of late Deeney move

  Southampton must trust Hasenhuttl in pursuit of late Deeney move Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl reportedly wants to land Watford striker Troy Deeney before Friday’s domestic deadline. That’s according to the Sunday Mirror (11/10; page 73), who claim that the Austrian is keen on acquiring the 32-year-old’s services to bolster his attacking options. Premier League rivals Brighton and West Brom are also interested in Deeney’s services, according to the same report. Another man who has been linked with a move to St Mary’s in recent months is Danny Welbeck. The Daily Mail reported Southampton’s interest in the 29-year-old at the end of August. Brighton are also now keen on the former Arsenal and Watford man, who is now a free agent.

Manchester United signed Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton in 2015, in a deal which eventually rose to £31.5million.

The Saints made a huge profit on the French midfielder, who they landed from Strasbourg for just £1.35million seven years earlier.

Schneiderlin, who now plies his trade in his native country with Nice, is now worth £9million.

The defensive midfielder turned out on 257 occasions for The Saints, but following his St Mary’s exit, failed to kick on, and as time has gone on, it has come apparent that Southampton played a blinder when it came to Schneiderlin.

The France international helped Southampton to a seventh-place finish in his final season with the club but made just 47 appearances in his two years in Manchester.

Even though he won four trophies with the Red Devils, he failed to replicate his solid individual Saints displays with United, before failing to reignite his career with Everton.

During his last season on the south coast, Schneiderlin recorded a WhoScored Premier League average of 7.51.

Six seasons on, the midfielder has failed to improve on that score, only averaging above seven in two of those campaigns – that being his maiden years at Old Trafford and Goodison Park.

The Saints, looking back, should be thrilled with their 2015 business, which ultimately saw them bag a huge profit on what turned out to be a declining player.

Southampton are thought to be lining up a move for Accrington Stanley goalkeeper Toby Savin. That’s according to an exclusive report from Football Insider, who claim that The Saints are ready to make their move after closely keeping tabs on the teenager. Savin recently signed a new three-year contract at the Wham Stadium and is currently first-choice under John Coleman in League One. The 19-year-old has made 12 senior appearances in total, keeping four clean sheets during that time. That’s a clean sheet percentage of 33% and his fine form has helped Accrington to 12 points from their opening seven league fixtures.
