One of Plymouth Argyle's Japan-based directors has claimed an injection of funds has been sent to help the cash-strapped club.

George Synan has not revealed the amount but described it as "survival money" for the club, which is thought to have debts of about £10m.

Plymouth Argyle were docked 10 points last week after issuing a notice of intention to appoint an administrator.

American director Mr Synan said he was determined "to get the mess sorted".

"It is not the full amount but it is the first piece of the money that we have said we will invest," he told BBC Spotlight.

'Personal funds'

"We are working with the directors on how the cash situation can be resolved."

Mr Synan, who has not been seen in Plymouth since November, said: "I am trying to arrange a schedule and I hope to be in Plymouth on Wednesday or Thursday."

The money is understood to have come from his Tokyo-based co-director Yasuaki Kagami.

"This is from Mr Kagami's personal funds. We are in real estate and we have to let go of assets," said Mr Synan.

Mr Synan said he and Mr Kagami were still keen to play their part in the League One club.

"We have a pretty substantial sum invested and we want to get the mess sorted," he said.
