Who is the highest paid Leeds United player in 2024? Top 16 richest Leeds players - including Bamford and Rutter

Patrick Bamford and Georginio Rutter are reportedly among the biggest earners in the Leeds United squad.

The wage bill at Elland Road is considerably lower than it was in the Premier League, having been reduced by contract clauses and an array of departures. Some of the highest-paid players left in a summer of change, which saw Leeds reshape their squad in preparation for life back in the Championship.

However, there are still some big earners in the Leeds squad with weekly wages that are not to be sniffed at. The club’s fate in the Championship this term is yet to be determined but it is hard to argue the Whites have not earned their money this season.

A 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday extended their unbeaten run to 12 league games and also saw them move into the second tier’s top two. Here is a ranking of Leeds United’s biggest earners, excluding January window additions, according to Salary Sport data.
