Championship title.

The 23-year-old was allowed to depart St Mary’s temporarily by former manager Ralph Hasenhuttl in August, but there have been significant

changes at the club since then, with the Saints being relegated from the Premier League and Swansea City head coach Russell Martin expected to

take over.

With the Clarets and the Saints swapping divisions, rumours have been gathering pace about where Tella’s long-term future lies and whether

Vincent Kompany may look to bring him to Turf Moor this summer.

Tella signed a new long-term contract with Southampton last January, keeping him at St Mary’s until summer 2025.

With the transfer window now open for business, we rounded up all the latest news on Tella’s future.

What is the latest news on Nathan Tella’s future?

Southampton valuation revealed

According to The Sun, the Saints will demand £15 million for Tella this summer.

The report claims that the high valuation may price Burnley out of a move for Tella, which could suggest that Southampton are keen to keep him.

The Saints are likely to receive significant funds for key players such as James Ward-Prowse and Romeo Lavia over the coming months which may take the pressure off them to sell Tella.

Martin will know Tella’s quality at Championship level and he would be a huge asset as he looks to mount a promotion push next season.

Burnley stance emerges

The Clarets are said to be “unlikely” to be willing to meet the Saints’ valuation of Tella.

According to The Athletic, Burnley are keen to bring Tella back to Turf Moor this summer and talks have been held between the two clubs, but

Southampton’s asking price is proving to be a stumbling block.

Kompany will be reluctant to spend too much of his budget on one player this summer as he looks to upgrade his squad for the Premier League and

it remains to be seen whether the Clarets attempt to secure Tella’s return.

Tella was giving little away when asked about his future last month, but he did reveal that he was looking to returning to St Mary’s for pre-season.

“I haven’t really thought about it, I know I’m contracted to Southampton so I’m looking forward to going back there and doing pre-

season,” Tella told BBC Radio Lancashire last month, quoted by the Southern Daily Echo.

“I’m looking forward to seeing my family and friends and going on holiday with them, that’s it. It’s a very good question but one I don’t have the

answer to right now.”

  1. We had Tella all last season and he was a breath of fresh air and now he’s gone back to his parent club they want £15 million we could afford it but there must be a very good reason why the boss isn’t going for him he must have someone who can make a bigger impression, hard to imagine but we’ve just got to trust VK it paid dividends last season
