Difficult to know precisely what the deal with Dan Sheldon is, whilst the Southern Daily Echo journalist claims to specialize on Southampton Football Club, the journalist’s coverage of the Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg transfer to Spurs has not been straightforward.
Initially we were told that the Saints’ player had been to Goodison and it was a done deal, but the Liverpool Echo swiftly dismissed the tale, and since then numerous reports have emerged, suggesting that the player is holding out for a Spurs move.
A number of fans have not reacted to the latest assertion from Mr Sheldon, that suddenly 3 European sides have now all submitted bids for the former Southampton captain.
None of the 3 sides have been named, and it will be interesting to discover if any overseas media outlets are able to flesh out the story.
Voetbal International had speculated that Ajax were interested, but that was over three weeks ago.
