Niemi rumours revive

Niemi is not a happy bunny at Southampton after new coach George Burley sacked the goalkeeping coach who also happens to be the Finn's best mate. Our Southampton correspondent, Joe the Saint, reports that the local gossip that Niemi is off to The Valley.

Charlton already has three keepers (four if you count Randolph) so the arrival of the talented Niemi would surely mean the departure of one of them. At one time that might have been Myhre, but he has recently signed an eighteen month contract. So I still think that the story is unlikely, even if our two leading keepers have both had indifferent form recently.

Rather than Niemi coming in, I would be happy to see JJ depart into Finn Air.
