Southampton failed to conclude a swap deal for Lamine Sakho on deadline day.Southampton and St Etienne failed to conclude a swap deal for Lamine Sakho and Yoan Folly on transfer deadline day.
St Etienne, who sold Folly to The Saints in 2003, wanted to bring the midfielder back to the club.
Southampton were keen and wanted to take former Leeds striker Sakho.
However, negotiations failed and both players remained at their respective clubs.
St Etienne also tried to sign Sergio Koke from Marseille, but that too failed to happen as l'OM shunned their bid for the Spanish hit-man.
In a deal of real disappointment for Les Verts, they also failed to land Julio Hernan Rossi from Basel.
