‘A huge plus for the Saints’ – Did Southampton have a successful transfer window?

Southampton had a busy summer transfer window following relegation from the Premier League last season, undergoing a managerial change in the process as well.

Russell Martin was the man who came in. He eventually oversaw what was a fairly busy summer transfer window with the Saints active throughout, and active up until Friday’s 11pm deadline.

There was also a number of player sales at St Mary’s too, with James Ward-Prowse moving to West Ham and Romeo Lavia at the centre of a transfer saga; he ended up at Chelsea.

Southampton, ‘A huge plus for the Saints’ – Did Southampton have a successful transfer window?

Who is this?

Our assessment…

“There seemed to be on end of Southampton transfer stories this summer. The Romeo Lavia saga dragged on and Ward-Prowse’s exit took its time too, but in the end, the Saints will have been glad to offload both for decent fees.

“Martin got his marquee signing in Shea Charles over the line early and another in Ross Stewart right at the death; I think these are two huge signings for the club and Martin can really build a team around them.

“And Southampton made very good use of the loan market too, perhaps better than any other side in the league, so that’s a huge plus for the Saints.

“Time will tell how effective Southampton were in this summer’s transfer market, with their last outing v Sunderland showing us that there’s still time needed for this new-look side to really start performing.

“On the face of it though, it’s a good summer of business for the Saints.”
