Dorset businessman Marc Jackson, who is fronting the bid, claims that administrators Begbies Traynor have been in contact with him in the past week to seek assurances that the bid still stood.
Saints' financial troubles have been well-publicised since their relegation from the Championship but the potential takeover by the Pinnacle consortium continues to be delayed due to the Football League's position over license issues.
Jackson told the Daily Echo: "Yes, they have recently contacted us. I assume that is because they are protecting their backsides should Pinnacle fail. They have no choice and I hope that they are also looking to protect the club."
