Wycombe Wanderers captain Matt Bloomfield has been selected by one of the country’s leading football organisations to discuss wage deferrals.  

Bloomfield, along with Peter Clarke of Tranmere Rovers, John Mousinho of Oxford United, Leyton Orient’s Matt Harrold, Scott Cuthbert of Stevenage and Walsall’s Mat Sadler, were selected by the PFA to join a working party panel to talk about issues relating to the recommendation that League One and Two players should defer 25 per cent of their wages during the suspension of the league season.

In a statement issued to the media on April 16, Wanderers chairman Rob Couhig confirmed that the club will not be asking its players to defer wages.

He said: "We have not asked players to defer their wages in April.

“Our understanding of the joint statement (from the EFL and PFA) was that while it permitted clubs to request a deferral of the players' wages, it was not a mandate.

“My belief is that deferrals are loans from our future revenue. To the extent we can avoid doing so, we will try to avoid accumulating debt that will impact our future operations.

"We continue to communicate with the players through their leadership in the hope that a global solution to all issues arising from the shutdown can be resolved.

“We expect to have a better understanding of a possible resolution by the end of April.”

Wycombe currently sit in eighth place, just three points off the automatic promotion places.
