Nathan Redmond scores for Norwich
According to The Mirror, Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond will undergo a medical with Southampton today as he nears an £11m move to the South Coast.
The Saints may have lost manager Ronald Koeman to Everton, but they appear ready to sanction transfers both in and out, having sold midfielder Victor Wanyama to Tottenham on Thursday.
The money gained from Wanyama's sale will be reinvested quickly though, as The Mirror report that Norwich winger Redmond will undergo a medical with the Saints today in an £11m deal.
Redmond, 22, hit six goals and three assists for Norwich in the Premier League last season but couldn't save them from relegation - though he now looks set for an immediate return go the top flight.
The former Birmingham City man impressed with his pace down the right hand side of the Norwich team, but many believe he was underutilised by manager Alex Neil as the Canaries struggled, which is something Southampton don't appear to be concerned about.
With nine goals in 28 caps for the England Under-21's, Redmond has impressed for his country at youth level, and now looks set for a big move to St. Mary's Stadium.
Southampton are believed to have made Redmond a top transfer target whether they have a manager or not, and with an £11m deal agreed, Redmond will complete his medical on the South Coast this afternoon according to the report.
It's added that Redmond could be signed as a future replacement for Sadio Mane, with Liverpool keen to sign the Senegal international - and Redmond's pace out wide could made him a sensible successor, whilst Southampton will take this opportunity to develop another young English player once the deal is completed.
Do you think Redmond would be a good signing for Southampton?
