Southampton reportedly after Leandro Damiao

See, Leandro, this is what you get. This is what you get when you screw around and try to see if you can get big clubs interested in you. You have to go to Southampton.

Seeing as Sky Italy reports should be taken with a grain of salt and Tancredi Palmeri reports should be taken with a grain of salt, take this supposed Sky Italy report tweeted out by Tancredi Palmeri with an entire damn salt mine. Having listed that caveat, here goes: Long coveted Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damiao is the subject of a possible big-ass bid from Southampton.

Well, I can't imagine that will make Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez very happy. Emmanuel Mayuka's not bad either, though he's a striker/winger tweener. I know Southampton have money and ambition, but striker's the least of their problems.

Anyway, I think we'll all be a bit annoyed if we spend all this time courting Damiao and he ends up scoring 20 goals for a mid-table side. Or maybe you've all moved on to the 'whatever, Damiao can piss off to Southampton' stage of grief? Anyway, if we pay €12m for David Villa and Southampton get Damiao for €20m, I'm going to be pissed.
