PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Sheffield Wednesday's Supporters' Trust has expressed its concern over reports the club's players have not received their wages for either March or April. A report in yesterday's Telegraph suggested that players have not been given their latest pay packets and that some are still awaiting payment from March. If true, it is not the first time the Owls have failed to pay their players in full or on time. The squad was not paid on time during June last year when the 2019/20 season was resuming following the three-month Covid-enforced hiatus. It then emerged in November too that players had only received a percentage of their salaries and the PFA were called in to mediate the situation. Players received a maximum of £7,000-a-month of their wages, with the rest promised later. The alleged claims brings fresh scrutiny on the ownership of Dejphon Chansiri, who has repeatedly spoken about the ongoing cash flow difficulties his and other clubs are facing amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Football's social media boycott From 3pm on Friday, April 30 until 11.59pm on Monday, May 3, all sports channels across the entire Reach network - including Yorkshire Live - will join the boycott of social media as part of the campaign against online hate.

A statement released on the Trust's website last night read: "The Trust is very concerned about media reports today in the Daily Telegraph regarding SWFC players not receiving their wages for March and April immediately before the crucial game against Forest on 1st May. "Whilst this story has not yet been confirmed it comes on the back of previous instances of players not being paid, or only being part paid, first reported as occurring by the Sheffield Star in November 2019 before the current health pandemic led to lockdown.

"If the story is not true we call on the club to immediately deny it. If it is true, we expect the club to immediately explain to supporters what has actually happened and what is being done to put the problem right before next weekend. "The club should confirm if wages will be paid in full, or in part, before the game against Derby County. They should also explain why the club has not paid wages correctly at such a critical phase of the season. "Silence and a refusal to comment is not acceptable – Sheffield Wednesday fans deserve to hear directly from the club on what is actually happening at our club."

Wednesday face Derby County on the final-day in a potential relegation decider. The two teams are separated by three points and two places, with Wednesday one goal better off on goal difference.
