Mauricio Pellegrino, the Southampton coach, insisted that he wants to sign Quincy Promes from Spartak Moscow as his side have been heavily linked with this player but the deal still hasn’t been done.

The Argentinian coach confirmed that the Saints are still “pushing” on this transfer but he also admitted that the deal is not exactly close to being done so it may happen that the negotiations will be held also on the Deadline Day.

The former Malaga coach spoke about Promes’ expected move as he believes that his club will be able to finalize the whole thing, according to Sky Sports.

– Quincy Promes is one of the players that we have been following for a few months. The market is too difficult, we wait until the end and keep pushing.

– In the dressing room our feeling is we are growing as a team and little by little playing much better with and without the ball, he admitted as his side beat Watford in the FA Cup.

– We could not kill the game earlier and suffered at the end because they were really dangerous with direct play and crosses but we deserved to win.

– We had in our mind the last game 15 days ago when we were winning 2-0 and Watford created lots of problems with direct play (and eventually drew 2-2), Pellegrino added, in the end.
