Neil Lennon fears Bolton's players could walk away from the Championship club if their financial struggles are not remedied soon.

Wanderers' players are still yet to be paid for the month of November and another missed pay packet may allow them to get out of their current deals at the Macron Stadium.

On the subject of what might transpire if players were not paid wages for two successive months, Lennon explained: "They can give the club two weeks' notice.

"That is their right. Obviously at this time of year it's a huge concern if they're not getting paid. We need something done very, very quickly,"

"That scenario is a realistic possibility and that would be another devastating blow," he added of players leaving.

"They are well within their rights, obviously. No one has come forward to suggest that just yet but time is of the essence."
