Victor Wanyama's proposed transfer to Southampton has reportedly been thrown into doubt today by a row with the player's representatives over their cut of the deal.
Saints agreed a fee for the Kenyan midfielder with Celtic last weekend, with an offer of around £12m deemed acceptable by the Glasgow club's board.
Agents Rob Moore and Ivan Nodia are thought to be demanding around £1m in payments before the move can go through, according to The Sun.
Saints chairman Nicola Cortese is thought to be furious over what he sees as extortionate demands from the player's representatives, with the owner ready to turn his back on a deal over the disagreement.
Wanyama revealed yesterday that he has so far failed to agree personal terms with Saints, with the 21-year-old relaxed over talks as he considers a move to the Premier League this summer.
