Southampton are reportedly in the final stages of wrapping up the signature of Romanian center back Floran Gardos to replace the departed Dejan Lovern.
The doomsayers have been lining up all summer to crush Southampton after the losses of high profile members of their surprisingly strong first team last season. They have responded with a variety of new acquisitions and the latest appears to be arriving from Steaua Bucharest. Whether the new names can replace the production of the better-known players they are replacing remains to be seen but the Saints are at least close to having a full squad assuming Gardos joins Fraser Forster, Ryan Bertrand, Saphir Taidir, Dusan Tadic, and Graziano Pelle. It will be interesting to see how so many new faces come together under a new manager in Ronald Koeman early in the season. Aug 11 - 1:04 PM

Jose Fonte has signed a new deal at Southampton that will keep him at the club until 2017.

After all his friends left, Fonte decided to cash in at Southampton as one of the more experienced players the club currently has. Fonte was also named the captain for the forthcoming season. If the Saints can keep their defensive level from last year after losing Dejan Lovren and Luke Shaw, Fonte could be a good fantasy choice, especially with the likely arrival of Fraser Forster in goal. Look for Saints to regress but don't be surprised if they are a mid-table team in the coming season.

Jose Fonte is questionable for Southampton's game against West Ham on Saturday.

Fonte has been dealing with a minor problem and was assessed in Friday's training session but we have not heard the results of his status yet. With Dejan Lovren and Jos Hooveld out, Fonte will feature if he is even close to being to full health.

Jose Fonte suffered a shin injury last time out but has already recovered and is available for Southampton's next match against Sunderland.

This is good news for the Saints as they are already without Dejan Lovren and missing Fonte would have been too big of a loss. The central defender has been fantastic this season and has been a great fantasy asset as of late. Southampton's next Premier League match is against West Ham and the Hammers are not known for their attack, making Fonte a premium pick for the week.

Jose Fonte scored and contributed to a clean sheet in a Southampton win that saw a number of balls hit the post but only one go in.

The Saints center backs have contributed five goals so far this season and the latest - yesterday's rebound from Jose Fonte - was enough to secure an away win at Hull City. The match saw a number of shots from both sides hit the post. The one that found it's way through was just as dramatic with Steve Harper producing a double save before Fonte turned the second rebound into the net for the winner.

Southampton have once again been linked with Italian defender Davide Astori.

The 26 year old Cagliari center-back would be a great addition to the Saints squad, who have struggled defensively when missing Dejan Lovren or Jose Fonte. Southampton started the season in fantastic defensive form but as Lovren and Fonte missed games because of injuries or suspensions, the defense struggled mightily. Astori has held a regular spot in the Serie A this season and would provide instant improvement.

Jose Fonte and Maya Yoshida are considered slight doubts for Thursday's game against Cardiff.

Fonte and Yoshida were left on the bench Sunday because of slight knocks and remain slightly doubtful for Boxing Day. The Saints defense has suffered drastically without Fonte and if he is healthy enough, there is no doubt he will start at centre-back. Fonte is a good fantasy option facing Cardiff but make sure to have a reliable bench option.

Jose Fonte is expected to return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench last weekend.

Fonte came off the bench last time out because he was recovering from an injury and wasn't fit enough for 90 minutes of action. He is not an advised play against Manchester City, who are currently in great form. If you want a Saints player, I would go with Dejan Lovren, who is better at producing fantasy points without a clean sheet.

Jose Fonte scored an equalizer late in the game to win Southampton a point against Sunderland in a 1-1 draw.

Southampton were the better team the majority of the game and equalized late to win a point. Fonte has started each of the last two games at center back alongside Dejan Lovren and it seems the two have won their starting spots for now. Southampton have only conceded one goal in two games with the two starting in the back and there seems no reason to change what is working.
