The average Premier League player’s net income will rise by about £240,000 a year. This is following the United Kingdom government’s tax and National Insurance cuts. Clubs and agents believe that the changes will make England’s topflight even more attractive to overseas players.

The average Premier League player earns about £4 million a year — or £75,000 a week — and the cut of the highest rate of tax from 45 to 40 per cent as well as national insurance changes will make a huge difference.

The English Premier League is where the top average salary is paid, but it has no special tax arrangements for overseas players — unlike in Italy, France, the Netherlands and Belgium.
