Players and staff at League Two club Morecambe have had their wages paid late for the third time this season.

The Shrimps have had financial problems all season amid uncertainty over the club's ownership, and a court case is currently ongoing over a possible takeover by businessman Joseph Cala.

Owner Graham Burnard told BBC Radio Lancashire a delay in an international bank transfer caused the late payments.

Morecambe have lost six games in a row to drop to 19th in the table.

Cala's attempted purchase was delayed on 3 February after Brazilina Diego Lemos, who owns a share in the club's owners, G50 Holdings, obtained a court order preventing a sale.

Cala hopes to buy Abdulrahman Al-Hashemi's stake in G50 but 99% of that share was transferred to tax consultant Burnard on 11 January.
