Fulham players will see their wages slashed should they suffer an instant return to the Championship.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s men have endured a tough start to their Premier League campaign and are currently in the bottom three having shipped 28 goals in their opening 10 games.

In addition to splashing in-excess of £100million on recruits, the Cottagers also significantly raised their wage ceiling in order to attract players they felt would improve their squad.

Relegation would leave a heavy financial burden Fulham given the level of summer spending and the reduced income from dropping out of the lucrative Premier League.
