It's common knowledge that the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Alexis Sanchez, Harry Kane and Mo Salah collect the biggest paychecks at their respective teams, but some of the reported figures near the bottom may come as surprise.

This season he's failed to nailed down as starting spot in David Wagner's starting XI.He's played in six of Huddersfield's eight Premier League games this term, his only completed 90 minutes coming in the 1-1 draw with Burnley on 6 October.
According to spotrac.com, Aaron Mooy is Huddersfield's next best-paid player after Pritchard, with the Aussie international collecting £50,000 a week.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, Everton's record signing, is the Toffees highest-earner on a reported £150,000 per week, while Wilfried Zaha apparently makes £130,000 a week at Crystal Palace after he committed his future to the Selhurst Park club.
Across London Javier Hernandez is said to rake in £140,000 a week playing for West Ham United, where he's scored just nine goals in 38 appearances since returning to English football.
