Southampton have named the mystery bidder involved in early takeover negotiations.

Earlier this week Saints confirmed they have entered into negotiations with "a major UK-based investment company" to become the "majority shareholder" of the club, and in a Stock Exchange statement on Thursday morning, Southampton Leisure Holdings revealed the company is SISU Capital Limited, thought to be a London-based investment firm.

The Southampton statement to the Stock Exchange said: "Following recent press speculation and further to the announcement made on 22 October 2007, the board of Southampton confirms that it is in discussions with SISU Capital Limited and their advisers regarding a possible investment in the company."
