Hull City Youngster Is One Of The Lowest Paid Players In Premier League History

Hull City Youngster Is One Of The Lowest Paid Players In Premier League History

The Premier League returned to action yesterday and the game between Sunderland and Hull City included a league debut for Hull's 17-years-old Josh Tymon . What's more, the young lad earns just £150-a-week which makes him one of the lowest paid players in the Premier League history.

The club are languishing in the bottom three after being beaten by fellow-basement battlers Sunderland, but handed a debut to Tymon after he impressed during FA Cup ties and being rewarded with a contract last year.

The average Premier League salary is estimated to be around £44,000 per week - excluding bonuses and endorsements.

If Tymon needs any more inspiration then Manchester United prodigy Marcus Rashford was earning just £500 per week when he burst onto the scene in devastating fashion last spring.

It's also thought that Wayne Rooney was earning just £90 a week as a 16-year-old when he scored that wonder strike against Arsenal, before signing a far more lucrative contract extension a few days later on his 17th birthday.
