A TRIO of Chester City executives travelled to Preston today to discuss their wage rule breach with members of the Football League.
Chairman Stephen Vaughan, secretary Tony Allen and accountant Paul Murray will meet two members of the League's hierarchy to try and thrash out a solution to the mini crisis.
City have been issued with a temporary transfer embargo by the league and informed that they can't sign any further players until they reduce their current wage bill.
On Tuesday, Doncaster Rovers midfielder Ricky Ravenhill had to return to his club because the authorities refused to sanction an extension to his loan spell.
Vaughan is hopeful that today's discussions can find a solution to the problem.
"The league have been extremely helpful in the informal discussions, so hope-fully we can find a way forward," he said.
"The Football League transfer deadline falls on Thursday evening, so if we are to make progress, we are going to have to work extremely quickly."
Chester have also been informed that the tribunal into Paul Linwood's summer move from Tranmere will be held on Thursday, September 14.
The tribunal will decide whether City need to pay a fee for the 22-year old.
