KEN Anderson was last night rushing to sell Bolton Wanderers after the club’s players warned “enough is enough”.

As The Bolton News went to press, legal paperwork was passing back and forth between legal representatives of the owner and a consortium headed by Parminder Basran and Sharon Brittan, who plan to buy his majority shareholding.

Talks had reached an impasse over the weekend, but after the first-team squad issued a stern statement demanding an explanation from Anderson over their unpaid February wages, progress was again being made in the late evening.

A further announcement is expected today in advance of the home game against Sheffield Wednesday tonight – and positive news could create a party atmosphere at the stadium.

It had been a difficult day at Wanderers as players released a statement condemning the actions of owner Ken Anderson, who had promised to pay their overdue February wages yesterday if a takeover had not gone through.

“We, as a group of players, feel extremely let down by Ken Anderson once again,” it read. “We were promised on Friday that our wages and the staff wages would be paid to us by today (Monday). Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened. With no idea of when our wages will be paid our only option is to ask the PFA to take it up with the EFL and start proceedings on our behalf.

“Hopefully the issue gets resolved very soon so we can all move forward as a group and put all our focus into winning games of football and staying in the league.”

Wanderers responded quickly, hinting at an update before kick-off this evening.

“We are disappointed that the players have taken this course of action; however we will continue to have ongoing dialogue with them,” it read.

“The takeover process is progressing and all parties are working hard to reach a speedy completion. We hope to make a further statement prior to Tuesday’s game.

“Once finalised all outstanding salaries will be paid as a matter of urgency.”
