Hull players to accept deferral

Hull City's players are reportedly set to defer their wages over the summer in a bid to help out the cash-strapped club.

The Tigers are believed to be around £35million in debt and their recent relegation from the Premier League has led to suggestions of impending administration.

The Professional Footballers' Association have been called in this week to lead negotiations with players and deputy chief executive John Bramhall is optimistic that a deal can be reached.

Reports claim that players with relegation clauses written into their contracts have been asked to take a wage cut six weeks ahead of schedule in a bid to cut costs.

"It is out there that the club have made that request and that process is ongoing as we speak," explained Bramhall.

"The players are broadly in favour of looking to help and support the club moving forward.

"Within the principle of that request, the players are looking to see if they can work with the club on that basis."
