Villa’s top eight earners take home £370,000 a week between them, according to a report.

While the overall sum itself is not that surprising for one of the top six Premier League clubs, some of the earning percking order may surprise some Villa fans.

The apparent earnings of Villa’s top stars are revealed in a News of the World report about James Milner’s negotiations over a new contract.

The paper says Milner currently earns £40,000 a week – the same as Steve Sidwell – but may bid to up that to £75,000 if Villa want him to turn down interest from other clubs.

That would make him the top earner at the club and break the wage cap which Martin O’Neill believes is important for dressing room harmony.

Current top earner, says the report, is Ashley Young on £75,000 a week, with Richard Dunne, John Carew and Stiliyan Petrov all on £50k.

Stewart Downing and Sidwell join Milner on £40,000 while Emile Heskey takes home £35,000 a week.

Most Villa fans would be happy for Villa to spend whatever it takes to keep Milner, regarded as one of the brightest young stars in the Premier League and in the Ebngland squad, at the club.

Is Milner worth £75k a week – and are Villa’s other top earners worth what they reportedly make? Give us your verdict on our forum. It's quick and easy to register
