Perspective at Southampton

It is worth remembering that Southampton have spent some of their large income from sales on Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle.

Nonetheless, the club's successful eighth-place finish in last season's Premier League has seemingly made them a go-to resource for clubs seeking fresh talent.

"Everybody at the club is continuing to work hard on bringing in quality players," says executive director Les Reed. "It is important in the transfer window to remain clam, resilient and above all patient."

Redknapp perplexed by Remy transfer

Football

More now from Harry Redknapp on the collapse of Loic Remy's move to Liverpool: "There must have been a breakdown or they've changed their mind or they've decided to move in another direction.

"It's not fair on him because it's my opinion and the opinion of everybody else - he's never had a problem before."

Remy's £8.5m move to Anfield fell through on Sunday. Reports have since emerged saying he failed a medical.
