There are some surprised faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mail confirm that Southampton have finally signed a player.
It may just be on loan, but the fact that the Saints have managed to sign Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand on loan for the next 12 months is certainly putting a smile on the faces of punters.
Bertrand clearly knows that there is no place for him at the Blues and after the arrival of Filipe Luis, he made the decision to spend the season on loan once again and called the move the ‘perfect decision’ for him.
Now as one of our punters notes, Liverpool had been linked with an £8 million move for the left back – and now he will be wearing the Southampton shirt, he will certainly be on their radar come January!
Chelsea meanwhile are having one of the best transfer windows around according to our punters and we think this season could be very special indeed for the Blues and manager Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Bertrand will eventually be sold? Does he have a future at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts below.
