Steven Taylor was believed to be one of Posh's highest earners last season.

That’s the 11th highest of teams in League One last season.

Champions Wigan (£5,385) emerged with the biggest weekly wage bill followed by sixth-placed Charlton (£4,843) and runners-up Blackburn Rovers (£4,783).

Third-placed Shrewsbury’s average weekly wage was £1,154. Only Walsall (£1,150) and AFC Wimbledon (£1,130) offered lower wages.

Others to pay more than Posh include relegated pair MK Dons (£2,958) and Northampton Town (£2,657) and play-off contenders Rotherham United (£2,846) and Scunthorpe (£2,462).

Footy.com carried out a comparison between footballers’ wages and the average weekly wage of fans. They calculated Posh fans to earn on average £390.10 per week, six times less than a Posh player.

That’s apparently the ninth biggest wage gap among League One clubs and fans,
