When Saido Berahino burst onto the scene in 2013, it was revealed that he was earning £850 a week.
Three years later, it was revealed that Marcus Rashford was earning even less than that when he scored two goals on his Premier League debut against Arsenal back in February. The 18-year-old was on a very modest £500 a week before being bumped up to £20,000 a week months later.
However, those starting salaries still look pretty respectable when you compare them to poor old Josh Tymon’s weekly wage.
The 17-year-old, born in May 1999, made his Premier League debut for Hull City against Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.
Deployed at left-back, the England Under-17 international played for 68 minutes before he was subbed off for Jarrod Bowen.
It wasn’t a debut he’ll look back on fondly - Hull were beaten 3-0 by David Moyes’ men - but he could be forgiven if he felt a pay rise was in order.
Tymon currently earns £150 a week
It’s been revealed by The Sun’s Charlie Wyett that Tymon is currently earning £150 a week at the KCOM Stadium.
This makes him one of the lowest-paid Premier League players ever.
He’d probably earn more getting himself a part-time job at McDonalds.
His bank balance will improve soon...
However, it’s safe to assume that Tymon’s bank balance will improve considerably over the forthcoming years.
Arsenal and Everton are both reportedly interested in the teenager, although Hull will be doing everything they can to keep him at the club for as long as possible.
Incidentally, it takes Tymon’s team-mate Abel Hernandez 42 minutes to earn £150.
It probably takes Cristiano Ronaldo, who signed a lucrative new five-year contract with Real Madrid earlier this month, about 4.2 seconds.
