And now it turns out that we were due an add on from Burnley for Ashley Westwood, and discounted it to persuade Burnley to pay it early so we could pay last month’s wage bill. Xia has apparently been subbing the club to the tune of £5m a month but the last two payments didn’t arrive. Whether that’s down to him running out of money or the Chinese authorities stamping down on unstrategic foreign capital outflow is a bit moot.
Looks like we’re in deep deep do-do either way.
