Saints target Bart-Williams

Chris Bart-Williams would relish a Premiership return
Southampton are ready to offer Nottingham Forest's Chris Bart-Williams the chance to revive his Premiership career.

Southampton have now made Forest midfielder Bart-Williams a priority as Strachan continues to build a squad to take the struggling Saints away from the foot of the Premiership.

Strachan drafted in Paul Williams and Paul Telfer from Coventry last week on free transfers and Forest manager Paul Hart confirmed Saints' interest in the 27-year-old Bart-Williams.


I still feel I can play at Premiership level
Chris Bart-Williams

Hart said: "There has been contact and we should learn more soon."

Bart-Williams would relish the chance of a return to the top flight, and is currently free to decide his own future having been transfer listed after failing to agree a new deal at the City Ground.

He said:"The manager has not told me anything about Southampton's interest. I am still on the transfer list and I am out of contract at the end of the season.

"I still feel I can play at Premiership level. It's looking as though I have some serious thinking to do over the next few days."
