Former Southampton midfielder Carlton Palmer is not convinced by Oriol Romeu’s recent comments on James Ward-Prowse.
Will Ward-Prowse retire at Southampton?
According to Romeu, though, a move was never really an option for Ward-Prowse. Palmer, however, has his doubts.
When asked by TIF if he is buying Romeu’s words, the ex-Southampton player said:
“No, absolutely not, absolutely not. If he had the chance to go to Aston Villa or Spurs and the deal had been agreed, he’d have been gone. I 100 percent believe that, 100 percent.”
If the likes of Villa and Tottenham are still interested in signing the England international in January or next summer, then it could take a lot of money to get him out of Southampton. It leaves the south coast club in a very strong position.
