West Ham United and the rest of the clubs in the Premier League will officially ask their players to take a 30% pay cut.

Premier League clubs will consult their players over a possible 30 per cent wage cut over the next three months during the coronavirus global health crisis (Sky Sports).

Following a meeting between West Ham and the other 19 clubs on Friday, it was confirmed that matches will not resume at the beginning of May and that the season will only restart when it safe to do so.

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady says clubs face financial ruin if players do not take a 30% cut in wages during the enforced break (The Sun).

Brady insists players must take 30% cut to save clubs

Mark Noble has taken the pay cut to the West Ham squad for ‘consideration’ according to Claret & Hugh.

The Hammers have a big wage bill amounting to around £60million per year. So the club stands to make a substantial saving of around £4.5million if the players do take the 30% cut for the next three months.

But what would that look like for West Ham’s first team stars individually?

Based on the salaries of the West Ham squad published by WT Foot, here is how each player would be impacted financially each month and over the initial three month pay cut period.
