Southampton boss Nigel Adkins is tightlipped on his interest in Blackpool winger Matt Phillips.

Some reports named Southampton as the team in question, forcing Adkins to deny such a move - a stance he kept on Friday.

"We've been linked before with players and it came out last week because Blackpool were obviously weren't happy with something," he said.

"I probably think it's best that I don't make any further comments on that, while people are doing it.

"I'd like to think we do things properly here at Southampton and I made a comment last week about it and I think if you need to take anything you can take it from that."
