Hull City’s Josh Tymon earns just £160 a week and is set for Saturday’s Premier League debut against Stoke.

Josh Tymon is set for his Premier League debut at Hull City on Saturday, while he is still on just £160 a week.

The 17 year old defender would be one of the lowest-paid players in Premier League history if called into action against Stoke on Saturday.

Tymon has yet to be sorted out with a professional deal despite making appearances in the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

Stoke star Joe Allen, for example, is on £75,000 a week and earns more in a day than what Tymon pockets in a year!

It would take Tymon just over nine years to pocket what Allen does in one week.

Tymon is set to start on Saturday as an alternative to Sam Clucas.
