Softbank shares untraded with glut of sell orders

TOKYO, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Shares of Softbank Corp were untraded with a glut of sell orders on Friday after Sprint Nextel said it was in talks with the Japanese firm on a "potential substantial investment" that could involve a change in control of the U.S. firm.

Softbank was notionally quoted at 2,581 yen, down 10 percent from its Thursday's close of 2,881 yen.
