Dani Osvaldo is expected to be sold in the next 48 hours after clashing with Jose Fonte in training last week.
The incident saw Saints - not for the first time in 2014 - make the wrong kind of headlines, but Ward-Prowse says team morale has not been hit.
"It hasn't really affected us in a bad way," he said. "I think the camaraderie in the camp and everyone's positivity has resulted in us ignoring those off-the-field issues.
"Like you saw against Arsenal and against Yeovil at the weekend, our performances have not been affected."
