One Irishman Makes List Of Highest Earning Player At Each Premier League Club

One Irishman Makes List Of Highest Earning Player At Each Premier League Club

Robbie Brady arrived at Burnley last month in a record transfer deal for the club. A fee which could reach £13 million broke the £10.5 million which Sean Dyche's side paid for Brady's fellow Ireland international Jeff Hendrick during the summer window.

Not only did Burnley pay more for Brady than had for a player previously, they also made him the highest paid player at the club.

According to a list compiled by The Times of the highest earning players at each Premier League club, Brady is paid somewhere between £30,000 and £35,000 a week by the Lancashire side, making him the lowest paid player on the list. That is actually considerably less than the £50,000 per week which Aston Villa were reportedly willing to offer Brady if he had signed for them in January.

The majority of players on the list are strikers - no surprise there really.

Wayne Rooney is the highest earner on £300,000 per week. Man City duo Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero are next on £240,000 a week.
