Saints boss Ronald Koeman was keeping quiet today over a possible deal for Spurs winger Andros Townsend.
The 23-year-old is a target for the club, who have already had one bid, believed to have been worth £10m, knocked back.
Saints are understood to still be interested in signing the winger, but Koeman gave nothing away on the matter.
“I cannot say anything about that,” he said.
When asked if it remained a possibility, the Saints boss replied: “Everything is possible.”
As reported in today’s Daily Echo, Saints will not consider any attempts from Spurs to turn a potential deal for Townsend into any sort of a swap for Morgan Schneiderlin.
Koeman again reaffirmed that the midfielder would not be going anywhere this summer.
“For us, it’s away, the rumours about him, because he played a fantastic match against Liverpool and how he acts is fantastic, and he has to show his qualities, but he did last Sunday and we are happy to have him in the squad,” he said.
Koeman also brushed off talk about the possibility of a bigger bid from Spurs, who have so far only offered £12m, saying an improved sum would make no difference.
“It doesn’t depend on the offer, because he will stay in Southampton,” he said.
