West Ham wage savings analysed

The loss of Adrian, Andy Carroll and Samir Nasri is thought to have already removed around £205,000 per week from the Hammers wage bill.

Edmilson Fernandes and Lucas Perez’s departures added another £95,000 per week meaning that £300,000 or £15.6m per year has already been slashed off the wage bill with the two new goalkeepers only adding £30,000 per week combined.

The potential further loss of Reece Oxford, Javier Hernandez, Pedro Obiang, Sam Byram and Jordon Hugill could slash a further £250,000 per week off the club’s wages could make the grand total now available is a whopping £28.6m per year.

The signing of Roberto, David Martin and Pablo Fornals are claimed to have added less than £85,000 per week meaning just £4.4m has been spent leaving over £24m or £461,000 per week to spend on wages.

There is no doubt West Ham are still in the market for more free transfers and this wage surplus should help land a player or two.

  1. The savings on wages is huge and makes us wonder how we were spending that much on average players. Because we need to sell players to make space for any further arrivals the wages of sold players can also help cover those of any incoming players. Sean do you believe the wage savings are being added to the transfer budget?
