That's after having his wage cut by 40%.

Rodwell, 27, has played just TWO games all season for Sunderland. He hasn't featured since September, and continues to train away from the first-team squad.

He's currently earning £73,000-a-week!

Though he'll have his pay packet nearly cut in half as he enters the final year of his five-year contract.

Naturally, Sunderland were hellbent on binning off Rodwell in January but to no prevail.

The ex-Manchester City player has subject to a few offers from abroad, yet he turned them down to remain at The Stadium of Light.

Sunderland boss Chris Coleman wasn't pleased with Rodwell's attitude. Saying the following back in January: "[Knocks on table]. That's all I need to hear. A knock on my door," he told Chronicle Live.

"'Yes, Jack. Can we have a chat.Yes'.

"'I want to play football'.

"'If you want to dig in with us, roll your sleeves up'.

Coleman added: "The last conversation I had with him, he didn't want to be here. He wants to play somewhere else.

"I can't drag him on to the pitch and say 'please Jack, come and play football for Sunderland,' and I shouldn't have to."
