Brendan Rodgers has tabled two bids for the England international - the last a take-it-or-leave-it £25m - with Liverpool hopeful they would be able to move the deal forward once Saints announced Ronald Koeman as their new manager.

But the Dutchman's arrival does not appear to have altered Southampton's stance, with executive director Les Reed adamant Lallana, or any other player, will not leave St Mary's unless it makes financial sense for the south coast club.

"Lallana's been here long enough, we've brought him to this level and we feel that perhaps he should give it a little bit longer," he told BBC South Today.

"Anybody seriously considering coming for our players is going to have to think very significantly about the size of the fee.

"If we do take money it will be because it's the right amount and it enables us to improve the team and move forward."

Southampton are holding out for more money for Lallana as they owe former club Bournemouth a 25 per cent sell on fee.

I think Liverpool should have walked away at £20m, anything upwards of £25m is madness. There's no need to pay an English tax, there are plenty of homegrown players in the squad already and a wealth of attacking talent available from abroad. Just walk away.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
