Transfer news: Jack Buttner wants to sign for the Sains
Fulham and QPR target Jack Buttner has stated that he would prefer to sign for Premier League new boys Southampton because of the ambition they are showing.
The Vitesse full back has been linked with a move to London but would rather ply his trade on the south coast after visiting the training ground.
“I want to go to Southampton,” he told De Telegraaf. “I have to wait for both clubs to reach an agreement, but I count on the co-operation of Vitesse.”
“It would be a massive blow if this won’t go through,” said Buttner, who is under contract with Vitesse for one more year.
“I have been to Southampton and everything - including the living conditions - are perfect. The club, the stadium, everything, surprised me. Fantastic.
“And Southampton have big ambitions. With the new investor they want the same as Manchester City.”
