The League One club announced on Monday morning they were under embargo due to a short-term loan negotiated with the Professional Footballers' Association and a statement later in the afternoon on their official website sought to further clarify the situation.

It read: "The chairman and the directors of Bury Football Club have been working tirelessly over the past number of weeks to bring in new investment in to the football club having financed the day-to-day running of the club over a number of years.

"We are, like a large number of other football clubs, experiencing cash flow issues and, to that end, the club have negotiated with the PFA a temporary short-term loan which is to be repaid in mid-January 2013. Until the loan has been repaid the club has been imposed with an embargo in registering new players.

"As we speak we cannot register any new players until the 1st January 2013 under league rules, the embargo will extend that block on signing new players until this loan is fully repaid to the PFA.

"The board would like to assure all supporters that this is only a temporary issue."

Additionally, Bury have announced a host of special ticket offers to encourage increased attendances and ease the financial burden.

When Shrewsbury visit Gigg Lane on Friday, December 21, season ticket holders from all north west clubs can attend for £10, along with the club's "quid a kid" offer.

Bury fans are to be further enticed with a "one-off offer" to buy 2013/14 season tickets for £250.

The statement added: "The manager, backroom staff and players have done a wonderful job in improving matters on the pitch we urge our great fans to come down and support the club in numbers. We all value your continued support."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
