The agent of Vitesse Arnhem fullback Alexander Buttner says a move to Southampton is still on.

The 23-year-old's representative, Aleksandar Bursac, had not given up hope yesterday that the transfer would still go ahead.

"There was an issue, and I think that one has been resolved," he said.

Bursac added his belief that it is now up to Saints whether the move proceeds.

"The boy himself wants to come to Southampton and I don't foresee any issues unless Southampton pull the plug," he said.
