Leeds United players have not been paid for nearly six weeks as a result of the ongoing saga surrounding the club´s ownership according to the Professional Footballers´ Association.

Ken Bates placed Leeds in administration on May 4 with debts of £35million and won the race to buy back the club on July 11 and regain control at Elland Road.

PFA representative Mick McGuire told PA Sport: "It´s getting on for six weeks now and you cannot expect players to honour the terms of their contract when they´re not being paid. There are funds around so there needs to be some common sense to make sure the players get their wages."
