Manchester City's income from Premier League broadcast payments for last season was a record £60.6million - but even bottom club Wolves earned £39million.

The figures highlight the money available to clubs in the richest league in the world - and the fact that compared to many other leagues the split of the cash is not skewed massively towards the top sides. Half the domestic TV cash and all the overseas rights income are split equally between the 20 clubs.

"The Premier League's income distribution mechanism rewards sporting success in the League while also guaranteeing a significant amount of broadcast revenue to each club in order that they can plan from one season to the next," Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore said.
