Tottenham’s first-team players are reportedly unwilling to take cut pay-cuts and have questioned why they would be necessary, according to a report in the Telegraph.
It has now emerged that the club are no closer to agreeing on a wage cut or deferral deal with their playing staff following this change.
The report reveals that, despite Arsenal agreeing a 12.5 per cent cut with the majority of their squad, the Spurs players question whether it is necessary, particularly given that even the likes of West Ham United, Watford, Southampton, Sheffield United and Aston Villa have settled on deferrals.
It is said that the squad is more open to negotiations over deferrals than cuts.

I suspect that there will be an agreement to defer a portion of the wages until there is more clarity.
