Davis: It's fantastic news
Southampton captain Kelvin Davis was delighted to hear the Pinnacle Consortium backed by Matthew Le Tissier have been granted exclusivity for the next three weeks.
The 32-year-old is on holiday in Spain with his family and was ecstatic when he heard to good news.
Davis told the official website: 'It's fantastic news for everyone involved with the Southampton Football Club. I'm a Southampton player through and through and this may mean I don't have a decision to make.
'Let's hope that this news means a big step forward for the Club and that negotiations now move forward quickly so that the club's situation becomes clear as soon as possible.'
Davis, along with his teamates were contacted yesterday and were told they were not going to receive their wages for this month.
However, the cash recieved from the Pinnacle Consortium could see that problem quickly resolved, and Davis along with the others are delighted with the good news.
The group fronted by Saints legend Le Tissier now have 21 days to finalise a deal to take over Southampton Football Club.
