Bradford players and staff have not been paid wages this month due to a “temporary funding issue”, according to owner Omar Khan.
The Bulls entered administration last summer in a financial saga that gripped Super League for much of the year, but were bought by Khan and his consortium in September.
In a statement, Khan said: “I would like to dispel all rumours and confirm that the club is NOT going into administration but as I have always taken the approach of open transparency I will say that we are at this time experiencing a temporary funding issue and as such it transpires that we will not be able to pay the wages until Wednesday 8th August.
“We have made every endeavour to minimise the effect on all concerned and I would like to emphasise that this is a temporary issue that does not affect the future of the club, its players or its staff.”
Bradford recently revealed that Khan and fellow directors Simon Kenny and Vipin Joshi would take a back seat from the day-to-day running of the club, following the appointment of Robbie Hunter-Paul as deputy director, and Roy Davidson as assistant director.
