Surman's torn

Surman's torn

Andrew Surman is reluctant to leave Southampton this summer, but accepts that it isn't up to him.

Southampton are struggling financially, and playing in League One next season may result in the Saints parting with their prized assets.

Andrew Surman, along with Adam Lallana have been eyed up by Premiership sides and may well depart St. Mary's this summer.

But Surman, 22, is optimistic that the Saints can find a buyer, so that he can remain on the south coast to help Saints with the promotion push.

'I love being at Southampton and I've been here since I was 10 years old, so obviously I don't want to leave,' Surman told the club's official website.

'It's a difficult situation which will only become clearer when a takeover is in place, so we'll be able to move forward then.'

I would love to have a player like Surman in League 1, but unless we can find a rich buyer, we just simply won't be able to afford his wages. And it will be hard for Surman to turn down offers from the Prem and Champ. Will be interesting to see what happens....

Unfortunately I think Drew probably knows he underperformed this season and is saying all the right things. Would like him to stay, but think he has the 'potential' to play at a higher level. Hope a big club comes in and gives him that chance - but never forget, once a Saint always Saint.

Yeah a lot of Saints fans slag him off a bit, saying that he's not worth the hype that he gets from bigger clubs. He has definately under achieved this season. But he has proved before that he is loyal to the club, and it will take a good offer for him to go. I just hope that with our money troubles that we don't get a poor deal and a team pays way under his value.

I dont think that Drew has under achieved this season at all. He has looked fitter and sharper than last season when he only really turned things around under Pearson. Drews only failling is that like Kelvin he cant carry an entire team.
