Eddie Howe Voluntarily Reduced His Pay During Football's Absence

Managers including Eddie Howe and Steve Cooper have voluntarily reduced their pay, while clubs including Norwich and QPR have also furloughed non-playing staff.

Leeds players have volunteered to defer their wages, while Birmingham asked their squad to accept 50 per cent deferrals on their pay. Portsmouth have placed their players and staff on furlough.

Following Friday's meeting, the PFA has now written to players to update them. The letter, which has been seen by Sky Sports News, read: "As part of the stakeholders' meeting last Friday, the PFA requested to see each club's financial situation before we offer advice to players on whether to accept the terms offered.

"This will help us to find the best solution for you, as well as the long-term future of your club.

"Before accepting or signing any paperwork from your club, it is vitally important that squads collectively discuss proposals with the PFA.

"We have already been working with multiple teams from all divisions and have created a standardised template that can be used when agreeing to temporary financial measures. This ensures that you are legally protected."

Despite no collective agreement being reached on wage cuts, some players have already seen their pay reduced.
