Salford City Reds rugby league club is set for a revolution to save them from going bust.

The Reds are facing a winding up order over unpaid bills and have until January to find investment.

The club is planning a bailout worth £1.5m from Salford City Council and Peel Holdings, who jointly own their stadium.

It's part of a takeover by Salford supporters, which would see John Wilkinson step down from his long term role as chairman.

The plans will be put before council officials next week.
