What??? You don't the need money to buy the shares, you can sell the call to close without taking ownership of the shares. What are you doing investing money with that type of (un)knowledge... AND if it expired yesterday why wouldnt you sell it at the open
I don't know about your broker/financial institution, but mine liquidates any option that is in the money if not sold or exercised automatically by the end of closing on option expiration. Check with your broker.
