Cardiff City FC handed another transfer embargo

Tue 6th Jul 2010 | Money & Finance

The Football League has imposed another transfer embargo on Cardiff City Football Club because of continuing concerns over unpaid tax bills.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has issued a winding-up order and City return to the High Court on 11 August relating to an unpaid PAYE tax debt, understood to be £1.3m.

However, Cardiff City chief executive Gethin Jenkins says the club are confident they will pay the monies owed in the course of this week and expect the petition to be withdrawn.

The Cardiff chief, said the hurdle formed part of the process of getting the club on a sound business and financial footing.

"As is normal procedure, if PAYE isn't paid then HMRC are fully entitled to lodge a petition," said Jenkins.

"Cardiff City Football Club fully expect to pay monies owed in the forthcoming week, following which the petition will naturally be withdrawn.

"This hurdle all forms part of the ongoing process of getting the club on a sound business and financial footing."

Cardiff City are no strangers to the High Court, finally seeing off a previous winding-up order in June following a £6m investment by the Malaysian consortium who have taken over the club.

The club admitted then that there had been a transfer embargo, which was then lifted - but is now re-imposed.

The club is still believed to have debts of at least £20m and recently players' wages were delayed - although this was put down to money transfer problems.
