The Southampton fans who are gathered around the jukebox in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that the club are close to signing a new wise man for next season.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Premier League side are close to completing an £11 million deal to sign Nathan Redmond from Norwich City.

The 22-year old will reportedly complete his medical and sign for the South Coast club upon his return from holiday, after competing in the Toulon Tournament for the Three Lions.

Presumably, the move will further cast doubt over the future of Sadio Mane, who has been linked with moves to the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

Redmond performed well for the Canaries in the Premier League last season scoring six times for the East Anglian side which ended in the disappointment of relegation from the Premier League.

Those in East Anglia were reportedly  keen to hold on to the former Birmingham City trainee following relegation, though the player made it clear he wanted to move on and join the upwardly mobile South Coast outfit.

How far can Southampton go next season? Can they kick on without Koeman?
