  • Lee Bowyer has admitted that not joining Liverpool is his'biggest regret

The players, management and senior staff at Championship table-toppers Leeds have volunteered to defer their wages "for the foreseeable future".

Championship leaders Leeds are seven points clear of third-placed Fulham as they look to return to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.

The Leeds captain has been an exceptional servant of the Yorkshire club and is one of the most trusted players of manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The club said the lack of income would cost "several million pounds each month".

Leeds say the money saved will also mean "the majority of casual staff" can continue to be paid.

Leeds now lead the Championship standings with 71 points from 37 games played - one ahead of nearest rivals West Bromwich Albion - but will have to wait for the coronavirus-enforced suspension of the league to be lifted before the club can continue its push for promotion.

A collective statement from the Leeds squad said the club would work together to get through the current crisis and urged fans to listen to official advice about how to combat coronavirus.

Orta added: "My players have demonstrated an incredible sense of unity and togetherness and I am proud of their actions". "To Marcelo and his staff and all of the players, we thank them for putting our wider team first". Now we must focus on public health, and when the people are safe, finish what we started.
