The short-term future of the Salford City Reds looks likely to be secured this afternoon as they seek a delay in paying its debts.
The Super League outfit are in court facing a winding up petition form HMRC over unpaid taxes and overdue wages to two former players.
The club are likely to be given an extra two weeks to come up with the money as they continue to seek investment.
We understand that a single investor, a consortium headed up by a foreign businessman, is in talks with club officials today after flying in to the country yesterday.
A decision on on the winding up petition is expected at around 1pm.
