​Southampton need certain conditions before any Chinese investment

Southampton have reassured fans that the "best interests of the club" have been considered as news emerged of possible Chinese investment.

Stadium builder Lander Sports Development said it had struck a deal with Saints' owner Katharina Liebherr to buy into the club's holding company.

Liebherr said: "A potential partnership would need to clear multiple approvals and fulfil strict criteria."

Liebherr, who did not confirm a deal had been agreed, added: "Please understand that I can only make limited comments regarding this process but I can assure you that any steps we do take will be in the best interests of the club."
