Cape Town - Southampton have survived another transfer raid and are in good shape for their Premier League campaign this season.
Southampton's transfers rated: 8/10
The Saints continue to be raided of their finest talent yet still they continue to look like a team capable of finishing inside the top eight of the Premier League.
In: Cedric Soares (Sporting Lisbon, undisclosed), Maarten Stekelenburg (Fulham, loan), Juanmi (Malaga, £5m), Cuco Martina (FC Twente, £3m), Jordy Clasie (Feyenoord, undisclosed), Steven Caulker (QPR, loan), Oriol Romeu (Chelsea, £5m), Virgil van Dijk (Celtic, £11.5m)
Out: Artur Boruc (Bournemouth, free), Jos Hooiveld (released), Omar Rowe (released) Jake Sinclair (released), Nathiel Clyne (Liverpool, £12.5m), Dani Osvaldo (Released), Sam Gallagher (MK Dons, loan), Jack Stephens (Middlesbrough, loan), Morgan Schneiderlin (Man United, £24m)
Best bit of business: Getting £12.5 million for Clyne in his last season of his contract was some good work but keeping hold of Sadio Mane despite interest from Manchester United was excellent.
Worst bit of business: Bringing Caulker in to replace Toby Alderweireld is the only dodgy bit of transfer work.
