"This is why speculation is premature at this point", Machnig told German television station ARD.

Two sources close to PSA said on Thursday that job and plant cuts were part of the tie-up talks, with the two Vauxhall sites in Britain in the front line.

May will seek safeguards for Britain's vehicle industry as she seeks to head off concerns that Britain's exit from the European Union will put the auto industry at risk.

Vauxhall's United Kingdom workforce measures 35,000 and includes 23,000 in retail and 4,500 at factories at Ellesmere Port and Luton.

"There's been a request for a meeting and we will try to make that meeting happen, but I am not going to go into what the nature of that conversation will be", he told reporters.
