It was set up for players claiming unpaid wages from clubs.

Four League of Ireland footballers have applied to the FIFA Fund for Football Players which was set up for players claiming unpaid wages from clubs.

A total of 441 players worldwide have made applications with 89 per cent of those coming from Europe.

Over 2 and a half million euro has been set aside for players left out of pocket due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dundalk, Derry City, Bohemians and Shelbourne have paid players in full while Shamrock Rovers players have taken agreed wage cuts but the remaining clubs still owe wages to players.

Meanwhile, talks between the FAI and SSE Airtricity clubs about a financial package supporting a return to play have been postponed until Wednesday.
