Hammers to save millions in wages

  • West Ham will save over £10m per annum that can be re-invested by releasing four first-team players today.

The retain list published by West Ham United on their official website confirmed the release of four senior players from the West Ham first-team squad.

Andriy Yarmolenko is thought to have been the biggest earner of the four at £90,000 per week basic, followed by captain Mark Noble at a reported £50,000 per week, Ryan Fredericks is said to be on £40,000 per week while David Martin was likely to have been on a modest £20,000 week.

That’s £200,000 per week saved that can be re-invested which equates to around  £10.5m of wages off the £130m annual bill.

All four players’ contracts run out on 30th June this year with £800,000 per month off the payroll from July.

  1. 20k a week Sean modest eh lol . Wish the majority of working classes could earn that in a week when it takes most a year . Football short career they say and obcene money now in the game will eventually turn the game into a sport that alot will turn off from.

  2. We’re not really going to save it as we’re going to replace those players and pay them a wage!
