Leeds United players have held crisis talks with owner Massimo Cellino after not being paid by the club, according to Sky Sports.
The club is now once again in a financial crisis with a £1 million loan still not paid to Sports Capital. Some players are not happy with the timing of the meeting, having to rearrange flights and cancel breaks to attend.
Cellino has spoken about a return to the top league for the former English champions, but with a winding up order submitted it is reminiscent of how they were relegated ten seasons ago.
Players have voiced their concerns not just about pay, but about the treatment of manager Brian McDermott.
Ross McCormack in particular publically voiced that his former manager should be given more time before his departure, while the player himself has been linked with a departure from Leeds.
The Scottish striker has earned a recall to the national side with impressive performances under McDermott. With his mentor leaving and the loan remaining unpaid by the Leeds ownership, still to pay off it is widely expected that the Championship's top goal scorer will leave Elland Road this summer, with either Leicester or West Ham the most likely destinations.
