Leeds United have missed payment of wages to their players, the Yorkshire Post has learned.
General staff at Elland Road received their salaries for March as expected this morning but the playing squad at Leeds were not paid as scheduled.
The worrying development comes after a week of arguments between club owner Gulf Finance House and prospective buyer Massimo Cellino over who should fund this month’s wage bill.
The Professional Footballers’ Association, the players union, had been in touch with the squad at Leeds in the past 48 hours amid fears that wages would not be forthcoming.
