Vitesse Arnham have released a statement saying that the transfer of left back Alexander Buttner to Saints is now in doubt.


The statement (translated) on their official site reads.


‘The transfer of Alexander Buttner to Southampton FC is now uncertain. Last Friday Vitesse came to an agreement with Southampton about the transfer. Because Buttner himself also agreed on his personal conditions with Southampton, Vitesse was in the supposition that the transfer was a fact, with the proviso that Buttner would pass a medical. However, in the course of this weekend the player informed Vitesse via his agent that a third party had a supplementary demand towards the club. Vitesse gave to understand to the player that it would not comply with that demand, since it was applied in retrospect and Vitesse will not be pressurised. Vitesse is disappointed about the course of things, all the more because Vitesse negotiated with Southampton on the player’s request. Southampton has taken up an absolute correct position and is not to blame for the possible fall through of the transfer, Vitesse have also tried all possible to keep the set deal going.’


What third party?
