No forced sales in January

Saints fans are generally delighted with the news that new Chairman Leon Crouch has come public and said there will be no forced sales in January!

Saints fans have been fearing the worst in the run up to January, but the club doesn't have to sell players in order to balance the books, like we did in the summer.

He told the official website: We all know that player trading happens at all clubs - and we are no different.' But he is adament there will be no need to make the team weaker in order to balance the books.

'We are not in the position where we have to sell good players'. The chairman told the saints official website, this is welcoming news for the fans and is a huge boost ahead of the Christmas fixtures, which could make or break the saints season!

He does admit that players could leave, but only in normal trading and that the core of the team will stay together. Players like Andrew Surman have been linked with big money moves away from the St.Mary's Stadium but will not have to move if he wants to stay at the club.

Grzegorz Rasiak is on alot of teams shopping lists as he has been a bench warmer for most of the season thanks to the fine form of Stern John and could leave if Burley decides to let him go. Chartlon and Fulham are teams who are reportabley interested in the Polish striker.

Mario Licka hasn't had a look in and will perhaps be looking for a move away from St.Mary's in order to gain match action.

Also looking for chances are youngstars Adam Lallana and Cedric Baseya, they both could be looking for loan moves in order to gain experience.

George Burley could decide to send Gregory Vignal back to Lens, he has been on the fringes at best and very poor in the games he has played in. He has the option of recalling David McGoldrick from Port Vale if needed but he is gaining plenty of match pratice and experience at the League 2 strugglers and is likely to see out his loan, he is Vales top scorer this season.
