Daniel Levy has no plans to approach Tottenham’s playing squad to secure an agreement over a wage cut or a deferral according to a report by The Athletic.
The Telegraph reported that the enter Spurs squad are set to receive their full salaries for April.
They suggested that the squad was not willing to accept wage cuts just yet but were more open to discussions over deferrals.
However, The Athletic claims that the players have not been approached by Levy either regarding deferrals or wage-cuts and the Spurs chairman has no plans of doing so anytime soon.
It is suggested that the club first want to wait until the picture is clearer on if the league will resume and how much they stand to lose financially.
Tottenham are thought to want to accurately quantify the losses they stand to make before making decisions on when and where cuts are required.
The report even claims that Spurs could be the last club in the Premier League to try to implement a policy on wage cuts or deferrals.
Meanwhile, the playing squad reportedly want to be united in the negotiations over deferrals and cuts, if and when they take place.

Levy clearly wants to tread cautiously after the club’s initial furlough misstep. It makes sense to wait and see the extent of the damage before proposing cuts to players and potentially alienating a few of them.
If the plans to restart the league are scrapped then it will mean a massive shortfall in broadcasting revenue. In that case, the club will probably have no choice but to ask the players to take cuts.
