Saints look to hijack Hammers’ Baldock bid

Southampton have emerged as late contenders for the signature of highly-rated MK Dons striker Sam Baldock.

West Ham were understood to have bid £1.5m for the 22-year-old’s services on Wednesday but that offer was swiftly rejected by the Dons.

They have since been rumoured to have returned with an improved bid of £2m but the Saints are monitoring the situation closely.

Four goals in his last two games has re-ignited interest in Baldock whose future with the Dons has been an ongoing saga this summer. A move to Peterborough collapsed in June when the striker failed to agree personal terms with the club.
