Portsmouth players' wages delayed for third month

Postby dutchman » Fri Jan 01, 2010 2:32 pm

Portsmouth's players and staff have had payment of their wages delayed for the third time this season, amid ongoing financial struggles at the club.

The wages for December should have been paid on 31 December, but the payments will not be made until 5 January.

Pompey have seen Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs apply for a winding-up order against the club in relation to disputed tax contributions.

The club is also operating under a Premier League transfer embargo.

The ban relates to outstanding debts that Pompey owe to Arsenal and Chelsea for the signings of Lassana Diarra and Glen Johnson respectively.

And French club Lens have called for Portsmouth to be "shut down" over alleged unpaid debts owed to them for striker Aruna Dindane and defender Nadir Belhaj.
