October 25, 2023

Given the way in which the owners and players in the upper echelons of European football are pushing the ceiling for what’s appropriate or logical in terms of fees and salaries, we decided to dig a little deeper and see how those near the bottom are faring. 

In this article, we take a look at the lowest-paid footballers in the Premier League. 

Note: In line with the figures from Capology.com, we use the the British pound sterling (£) as the currency, and only profiles that have been verified have been considered for this list.
