It had been hoped the consortium might have been able to finalise a deal on Friday, but a late hitch regarding legal issues with the Football League has delayed an announcement. Le Tissier has admitted it has been a frustrating time for all, however, he believes Pinnacle are not to blame for the delays as questions from themselves to The League have yet to be answered. Despite the late hitch in Pinnacle's bid to takeover the now League One outfit, the Saints legend insists he is as committed as ever to getting his hands on the club he loves. "It's been a frustrating time for us despite several attempts for clarity over the Football League's position over the license-related matter. Which we still have no answer," he told Sky Sports News. "It's not a new issue. But it has to be resolved to our satisfaction in order to conclude the takeover. "Despite continual outside interference with our bid we're committed to completing a deal as we feel it's in the best long-term interests of Southampton football club, which is obviously what I care about. "We're hoping that we can get this resolved shortly and the next announcement that we make will be to confirm the takeover. "I'd like to thank the staff at the football club and the indeed the fans for their patience in the matter. It's very much appreciated from all concerned."
