As the financial crisis at Swindon Town worsens, manager Paul Sturrock has sent a memo to clubs advising some of his players are surplus to requirements to cut costs.

Sturrock had said in his weekly reports that if the takeover were to be delayed he would be top heavy and would need to reduce the wage bill at the club.

The club would only be able to reduce the wage bill by sending players out on loan as the transfer window does not open again until January.

The club are currently locked in negotiations with potential new owners from Portugal however talks have hit a snag and both parties are currently looking for a way to complete the deal amicably.
