Warnock fears player exodus

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock fears he could lose many of his first-team regulars next month because of the financial problems that are currently bedevilling the club. The Eagles players have still not been paid their wages for November with owner Simon Jordan blaming a cash-flow problem for the delay. If Palace have not paid the salaries by December 14 they would effectively be in breach of contract and the unpaid players would be free to negotiate moves away from the club. Victor Moses, Nathaniel Clyne and Sean Scannell have all been linked with transfers away from Selhurst Park and Warnock would not be surprised to see them leave. He told the South London Press: "Everybody's got a price and I can't stop people coming in for them - we'll just have to wait and see what happens. "The chairman doesn't want to decimate the team, but we have to generate some funds. I'll be fighting tooth and nail to keep people like (Darren) Ambrose and (Julian) Speroni."
