The Daily Express last week released a list of the 10 richest English-born Premier League footballers. 

The likes of Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and John Terry all made the list, as they have built up a serious amount of wealth over the years. 

We have decided to follow up the list by investigating which Premier League players earn the most per week.

The following values are all rough estimates and are the salaries the footballers take home before tax, according to statistics produced by TSM Plug.

Some footballers have the potential to earn incentive-based bonuses - such as for the amount of goals they score or if their side keeps a clean sheet - which are not included in their 'basic' salary. 

Click through the following pages to see who the top 10 earners in the Premier League are.

Surprised by any inclusions on the list - have your say in the comments box below!
