I believe our highest paid player was Nicolas Anelka but he was only here for 1 year 5 months and we made a £6 million profit on his transfer so we made money out of him being at the club even if he did earn a few million.
Phil Gartside was the chairman from 1999 to around 2015 and was earning a good 500k per year for some years in the Premier League.Eddie Davies reduced his wages to around 350k after relegation to the Championship in 2012.I would hazard a guess that he made £6 - £7 million from the club.
Mark Davies must have made several million from the club.He was at the club for 8 years.In his 5th year we turned down a bid of £5 million from Swansea.To be rated at more than £5 million i think he must have been earning 30k per week or £1.5 million per year.Perhaps he topped the £6 - £7 million Gartside estimate
What our other people's thoughts on which man made the most money out of the club? And how much did he make
