Southampton News: Promes talks confirmed; Le Tissier says Pellegrino safe

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino has confirmed they're pushing to sign Spartak Moscow striker Quincy Promes.

The Argentine says any potential move is still a number of days away meaning that negotiations could roll on right up to Deadline Day on January 31.

Pellegrino said: "Quincy Promes is one of the players that we have been following for a few months. The market is too difficult, we wait until the end and keep pushing."

"It certainly suggests there are no plans on sacking him at the minute (the signing of Guido Carrillo from AS Monaco)," he told Sky Sports.

"If it goes the wrong way, it is not looking good..."
