Schlupp to pocket £300,000 bonus for avoiding relegation

Jeffrey Sclupp and his Leicester City teammates are on course to earn around £300,000 each as a bonus for staying in the Premier League.

Leicester City are just five points away from 40- the point which is considered a safe zone from relegation

The table-toppers are certain to enter a third successive season in the top flight after their phenomenal start and are five points from reaching the 40 mark traditionally seen as guaranteeing safety.

 

Leicester were widely tipped to be relegated this season but are currently top of the Premier League table

An agreement made before last season saw the squad share a pot of money totalling around £6million this summer just gone and it is believed a similar prize pool is in place this campaign.

Beyond any incentives in the players’ personal contracts the cash is set to be shared out once a final position is confirmed, with increments for higher placings thought to be included.

After securing 14th position following a remarkable escape from relegation last term, Leicester players are each understood to have received around £300,000.
