Jordan Rhodes is Sheffield Wednesday’s highest earner, taking home a salary of £2.08m-a-year (£40k-per-week), which is more than Morgan Fox (£0.42m-a-year), Liam Palmer (£0.52m-a-year) and Massimo Luongo (£0.55m-a-year) combined.

It’s nearly four times the salary of Dominic Iorfa (£0.56m-a-year) too, but how does it compare with the rest of the Wednesday squad?

Player salaries taken from Capology, Spotrac and Silly Season.

How will Sheffield Wednesday fare against Bristol City?
