Football League hit Bury with transfer embargo

League One Bury have been placed under a transfer embargo by the Football League. The embargo was imposed after the club took out a short-term loan with the Professional Footballers' Association.

They are confident of paying it back in full and on time by mid-January.

"All businesses experience cash-flow problems and we're no different to anyone else," commercial director David Manchester told BBC Radio Manchester.

"December is traditionally not a brilliant month for attendances.

"Our attendance on Saturday [against Leyton Orient] was just over 2,100 and we've only got one more league game at home before January - on 21 December against Shrewsbury Town."
