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.
