​Reported Southampton takeover met with blank looks

Reports have been circulating on Wednesday that Southampton are in talks to be taken over by a China-based company.

However, both boss Claude Puel and player James Ward-Prowse are in the dark as to details.

"I have no idea about the situation. I give all my confidence to the president and the people at the club to do things in a good way," said Puel.

"It's the first I have heard of it, but it is a great club, a worldwide club, so of course there is going to be world interest," added Ward-Prowse.
