Portsmouth administrator Trevor Birch has warned the club will go out of business on August 10 unless an agreement can be reached over the wages of their senior players.

Eight senior players were understood to be in disagreement over unpaid salaries, though Luke Varney has since joined Leeds.

Supporters group SOS Pompey handed over an open letter to the players at the club's training ground in a bid to persuade players to compromise on their wages and Birch has said former owner Balram Chainrai could pull out of a proposed deal to buy the club if more players are not moved on.
