Alexander Buttner's proposed move to Southampton from Vitesse Arnhem has stalled, according to the Dutch club.

The 23-year-old defender had been linked with a move away from the Eredivisie side this summer, and last week it was announced he would be joining the newly-promoted Barclays Premier League outfit.

However, there now appears to have been an intervention by a third party which looks set to hold up the deal. A statement by Vitesse Arnhem read: "The transfer of Alexander Buttner to Southampton FC is now uncertain."
