West Ham players will carry over a percentage of their salary to help the club during the coronavirus crisis, while manager David Moyes and vice president Karren Brady will receive a 30% pay cut.

In a number of measures announced Friday, the club said co-chairs David Gold and David Sullivan are joining fellow shareholders to inject £ 30 million into the club to provide stability during the shutdown.

Gold and Sullivan, who have not received a salary or dividend in their 10 years at the Club, are deferring payment of interest on shareholder loans, the club said.

The Hammers are just the second Premier League club whose players agreed to a salary deferral after Southampton’s announcement on Thursday.

In a statement, West Ham said, “The savings from the above measures will support the entire infrastructure of the club and allow us to keep jobs and continue to pay 100% of staff salaries.

“It will also help us continue to support the most vulnerable in our community.”
