At present, it doesn’t look like there will be any incoming/outgoings on the final day of the summer transfer window

It looks like Southampton’s once-exciting transfer window will be ending a damp squib.

The two Adams, Blackmore and Leitch, believe it is unlikely we will see any players come or leave Southampton today. Both journalists are well-linked to the club.

Saints have seldom been linked with signing any players over the last couple of weeks, while Matt Targett - heavily rumoured to be piquing the interest of former loan club Fulham - looks set to stay after Saints reportedly rejected a £15m bid for the young left-back.

Meanwhile, reports of James Ward-Prowse interesting Watford as suitors appear to have waned. Yesterday, there were rumours of Watford being willing to table a £10m bid for the midfielder. Now, media outlets such as Sky Sports claim Watford want to loan Ward-Prowse, a move which seems highly unlikely.
