South coast latest: Saints want Redmond, Foxes still keen on Ulloa

Leonardo Ulloa 19/02/13 Cardiff v Brighton

Today's south coast latest features news from Southampton, Brighton & Hove Albion and Portsmouth.

Southampton ready to swoop for Nathan Redmond

According to the Daily Telegraph Southampton are set to offer Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond a quick return to the Premier League.

The 20-year-old winger moved to Norwich from Birmingham City this time last year but was unable to stop the east-Anglian club being relegated back to the Championship.

It is understood though that the fee could prove to be a stumbling block in any potential deal between the clubs. Norwich reportedly want £6million for the England under-21 midfielder, which is treble the £2million that they initially paid for him.

After the departure of Lambert, Shaw and Lallana and the likelihood that Lovren and Schneiderlin will follow, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is on the hunt for new players to restructure his side.

They could face competition for Redmond though as Stoke City and Everton are also said to be monitoring the Norwich man.

Leicester City interested in Brighton striker

Premier League new boys Leicester City remain interested in Brighton's Argentinian forward Leo Ulloa according to the Argus.

Despite tying lead striker David Nugent in a new two-year contract the Foxes remain keen on Albion's prized asset.

The Seagulls have reportedly already turned down three bids from last season's Championship winners, with one supposedly in the region of £7million.

Ulloa is understood to be keen on a move to a Premier League side, but newly employed Brighton manager Sami Hyypia is desperate for him to stay, and told him so in a recent meeting between the pair.

Brighton will be desperate to make it third time lucky as they look push for promotion to England's top tier this coming season.

The past two campaigns have seen them make the play-offs, but fail to progress any further. If Brighton are to reach that next level then retaining the services of their top players must be a priority.

Pompey boss delighted by Miles Storey loan deal

Despite having been on the cards for the past few days, today it has officially been confirmed that Portsmouth have secured the services of Miles Storey on a season-long loan form Swindon Town.

Pompey manager Andy Awford told the club's official website of his delight at the capture: “Miles has been a target for us since the end of last season and I'm delighted that he's joined us.

“I watched him play on a few occasions last season and believe that he’ll add an extra dimension to our attacking options.

“We're very grateful to Swindon for letting him come to Fratton Park for the season.”

The 20-year-old plays as a striker and has scored six goals in 35 appearances for the Robins, as well as spending time on loan at Salisbury and Shrewsbury Town.
