Ben Davies admits it would be a 'massive blow' if Sven Goran Eriksson left Notts County after revealing the players are in the dark regarding the club's future.
The Magpies are currently in desperate financial trouble and must pay a £600,000 tax bill by 27th January after being served with a winding-up order by HMRC.
Current owner Peter Trembling has also been frantically trying to secure new investment for the club alongside director of football Eriksson.
However, Trembling has conceded that Eriksson could leave Meadow Lane if no investment is forthcoming, with Davies anxious for the Swede to stay.
"It would be a massive blow if Sven left," Davies told the Nottingham Evening Post. "He's been brilliant with the players from day one and he's always been honest with us.
"He works really hard so hopefully the club can keep hold of him and Tord (Grip).
"It will be nice to know either way what is happening because the last two weeks have been the worst, but these things take time."
The League Two club are also under a transfer embargo and Davies, who signed a three-year contract last summer, is unsure what the future holds.
He added: "It's the same for us as it is the fans. We're uncertain about what is going on and we don't know what's going to happen.
"We are keeping our fingers crossed that everyone upstairs can sort it out because we've got a great chance to win promotion this season which must not be forgotten.
"Nothing has been said about it. We had a meeting with the both of them (Trembling and Eriksson) a few weeks ago and they put us in the picture back then.
"Other than that, they have not said anything. If anything does happen I'm sure we'll be the first to know."
