Swansea City players are line for a bumper bonus if they maintain their season form.

Swansea City players are line for a bumper bonus if they maintain their season form.

The Sunday Mirror says Swansea are currently playing for a bonus pot that could hit £8million if they manage to ­finish as high as sixth in the table – that’s almost ­DOUBLE the bonuses players of one top club would share if they won the ­Premier League AND the Champions League!

Should the Swans secure a place in Europe, either through winning the Capital One Cup or through their final League position, then the players will be set for more rewards.

Swansea’s top earner pockets around £35,000-a-week, less than Chelsea’s lowest earners take home, while star man Michu is thought to be paid £25,000-a-week.
