Much has been said about player wages this week, as many people across the UK have been forced to take a 20% pay cut by entering furlough.

However, a report from the Premier League has now claimed that all clubs have agreed to approach their own playing staff about taking wage cuts or deferrals.

These cuts, temporary or permanent, would make up 30% of their current wages, a plan that was decided in a Premier League meeting with clubs today.

Manchester United have already become the first club to cut their wages by 30% for one month, with similar moves expected across other teams in the top flight.

It has also been reported that £20m will be given to the NHS and £125m will be handed to the EFL and National League after a vote among the top clubs.

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham slash their player wages after putting 550 non-playing staff on furlough earlier this week.
