Senior man overtakes Kane to become Tottenham top earner with double-your-money deal - reports
By Richard Parks
Daniel Levy has secured a double-your-money pay rise that has made him the highest earner at Tottenham, according to a report.
The Daily Mail, citing newly-released figures from Spurs’ end-of-year accounts, report that the long-standing chairman’s salary has climbed from £2.8million to £6million.
It is said that Levy, 56, now earns more than top-earning player Harry Kane, whose £110,000-a-week salary is dwarfed by the chairman’s new £115,000-a-week package.
The Mail report that the lifelong fan’s salary also lifts him to number one in the boardroom pay stakes as he becomes the highest-paid executive in the Premier League.

Nice work if you can get it, eh? In the era of Premier League mega-wealth, it’s not just the players and the managers raking it in. Executives can also command staggering salaries, and the uplift in Levy’s pay in a single year is jawdropping. Not that Spurs can’t afford it. Their financial results make impressive reading, with profits up to £41million for the year ending June 2017. With the huge financial strain of the new stadium, a project masterminded by Levy himself, such depth in their reserves are likely to be needed as costs continue to rise.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are working on a deal to sign a 29-year-old left footer who would be a sensational signing.
