Many Southampton fans are far from happy after they were linked with a move for out-of-contract midfielder Robbie Brady.
With the Premier League season now over, the Saints can prepare for the 2021/22 campaign. With Ryan Bertrand leaving on a free transfer (southamptonfc.com) and plenty of interest in striker Danny Ings (Sky Sports), it is likely to be a busy summer at St Mary’s as the south coast outfit look to get their squad ready for August.
The 56-cap Republic of Ireland international has had a solid career but he made just 19 appearances in the Premier League for Burnley last term and managed only one goal and one assist (Transfermarkt), so he would hardly seem an inspired signing. He has also been plagued with injuries in recent years since starring at Euro 2016.
Would you like to sign Brady?
The news was shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from Saints supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the transfer speculation, and they were less than impressed.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Brady links
“We really are at a low”
“Wow, we really are going down aren’t we”
“What a tinpot signing that would be. Odds on we go for Danny Rose now he’s been binned by Spurs”
“I joked to myself today when I saw he was being released and thought I wouldn’t be surprised if we became interested. Laughable”
“This time last week we were being strongly linked with Thomas Delaney, 1 week down the line and it’s Robbie Brady, this club never fails to amaze me…”
