Plymouth Argyle squad still awaiting full wages

Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth Argyle's players are to go without their full wage packets for a seventh consecutive month.

The club's administrator, Brendan Guilfoyle, has offered players and staff only 50% of June's salary.

The players have not been paid by the club since December, relying instead on loans from the Professional Footballers' Association.

Guilfoyle has told BBC Spotlight he expects the club will be bought out of administration by the start of July.

An unnamed Irish consortium is understood to be in the process of taking over the club, having already paid a six-figure sum to keep the business running.

However, the identity of the consortium cannot be revealed until 14 June owing to a confidentiality agreement.

Plymouth entered administration in March with debts of over £17m, divided between more than 240 unsecured creditors, and were subsequently relegated from League One in May.
