19th richest man to buy Saints

No it does not appear to be a hoax, the 19th richest man in the World is reportedly buying Southampton FC!

American Paul Allen the co-founder of Microsoft has a reported fortune of £9bn.

The BBC has reported that a Southampton statement to the Stock Exchange said: "We have received, and are considering, a preliminary approach."

"The board note the recent rise in the company's share price.

"The board's consideration is at an early stage and there is no guarantee that any offer will be forthcoming."

While the Daily Mail has reported that a source close to Allen has said: "He sees Southampton as a sleeping giant, a family-supported club with traditional values."
