Shane Long has completed his transfer from Hull to Southampton after just six months at the KC Stadium.

Yet he cost £12 million for Ronald Koeman to add to his side. This after Long cost Hull somewhere between £4-7m in January.

He then proceeded to score four goals in 15 appearances. Hardly form that commands the attention of top clubs but The Saints have forked out a fee that doesn’t add up.

Long is a hard worker, industrious up front, but ultimately you want someone who knows how to find the back of the net with regularity and he’s only scored 28 goals in 146 league appearances.

Then again, Southampton will probably sell him for £30m next season. O ye of little faith…
