Northampton Town's chairman David Cardoza has issued a new statement about the club's financial problems after it missed its deadline to pay back a loan of 10.25 million pounds to the borough council.

The Cobblers had until the end of yesterday to repay the money - which was used to fund a redevelopment of its Sixfields stadium.

Today the council confirmed talks were continuing.

Mr Cardoza told the club's website that meetings are planned early next week and he was hopeful significant progress would be made.

"There are plenty of headlines surrounding the club at the moment, that's understandable but all efforts are being dedicated to resolve this situation as soon as possible. The next step is that there are meetings planned early next week involving the interested parties and we are hoping for significant progress there. I understand and accept the urgency, I understand the importance and I am doing everything possible to remove the uncertainty surrounding the club as soon as possible. I would like to thank the supporters for continuing to back the team and to thank Chris Wilder, the players and the staff for standing up so well in really difficult circumstances."
