The Guardian's David Conn today did a detailed study of the accounts at all 20 Premier League clubs for the 2011/12 season and one of the interesting nuggets to come out of it is that Niall Quinn was Sunderland's highest paid director at £2.4 million (€2.8m) including a £2 million (€2.34m) payoff when he resigned.

Quinn became Sunderland Chairman in July 2006 as part of the Drumaville Consortium and remained in that position until October 2011 when he was replaced by then owner Ellis Short. Quinn was then appointed as Director of International Development at Sunderland until stepping down in February 2012 although it appears now that resignation may have been by 'mutual consent'.
