The press association have said Southampton have asked the Premier League to investigate alleged illegal approach from Liverpool for VVD!

Nothing will come of this.

They have done this before with Toby and are just trying to please there fans in thinking that there trying to keep him.

06 Jun 2017 12:06:43
Does this mean the "deal" is now in serious jeopardy? Or is it just Soton trying to wrestle back some fee control? What a pain!

Liverpool contacted Southampton in March to ask for permission to talk to Van Dijk.

06 Jun 2017 12:31:33
I'm glad you are all so optimistic, it's not the first time we have been criticized for actions involving transfers.

06 Jun 2017 12:29:16
Have no other clubs talked to the player or his reps?

06 Jun 2017 12:45:19
BigD that can't be true if ed001 asserts we only started pursuing him until his agent approached us.

06 Jun 2017 12:53:10
EDs If they know VVD wants to leave for Liverpool and they are willing to accept the offer what do Southampton have to gain from this?

{Ed001's Note - stopping other clubs unsettling their players in future.}

06 Jun 2017 12:59:33
I'd be salty too if I was a feeder club like Southampton 😂.

06 Jun 2017 13:03:53
Ed, has the permission got to be in writing or would a verbal response be enough?

{Ed001's Note - verbal agreements are binding in law.}

06 Jun 2017 13:25:55
Robin in the Hood believe what you want, im just passing on info from several people. They tried the same tactics before so im not at all worried.

06 Jun 2017 13:30:32
At the very least, possibly best, case scenario, will this delay any pending deal a good while?

06 Jun 2017 13:23:11
Thanks Ed, I thought that too, but just needed confirmation.

06 Jun 2017 13:28:32
Seems a strange thing for Southampton to do ed, we must have an excellent relationship with them as we buy so many of their players, wouldn't Southampton reporting us muddy the waters a bit.

{Ed001's Note - we don't have an excellent relationship with them.}

06 Jun 2017 13:28:40
ED01 it was suggested that VVD's agent approached us and that we had no interest in signing a CB this summer but as the player was interested in joining then we have moved forward with this.

I am slightly confused and a little disappointed if we have not learnt from previous mistakes as we should of approached the club at that point.

Do you know anymore other than what the press are saying on it ED01?


{Ed001's Note - not yet.}

06 Jun 2017 13:40:41
How can you prove a verbal agreement has been in place? I smell a rat.

06 Jun 2017 13:50:17
Can't believe we've been that stupid. Lfc lawyers would have been advising. Saints grasping at straws.

06 Jun 2017 14:42:13
Players have agents and if that is considered illegal then every club is liable.

06 Jun 2017 14:54:05
We either wanted a CB or we didn't. I can't believe that Klopp didn't want one but then suddenly said ' oh yeah we do that's a good idea ' just because vvd's agent says he wants to join.

{Ed025's Note - i think he read on here that you need one kimos.. :)

06 Jun 2017 16:36:52
Ha! If that's the case Ed then we can look forward to a whole new team!

{Ed025's Note - your right there mate..

06 Jun 2017 18:08:47
Yeah Ed0025 :)

07 Jun 2017 15:37:47
So basically they are saying we didn't ask permission to speak to vvd. but they gave permission to chelsea and city. So they basically saying he's for sale . once that decision is made it should be a free for all for any interested parties to speak to the player. what a rubbish rule. They just wanted a bidding war between city and Chelsea, vvd stated he wanted liverpool transfer and they've spat their dummy out. This is 50 million southampton. greedy sods.
