After a season of ups and downs for Leeds United, the financial consequences of relegation have been revealed by a report from the Football Insider.

According to the report, Leeds have clauses in players’ contracts that will cut wages by 50-60 per cent if they find themselves in the Championship next season. The club’s current wage bill is £106.5m according to their most recent set of accounts, dated 30 June 2022.

Based on these figures, a 50 per cent cut across the board would leave Leeds with a wage bill of £53.25m according to the report.
