Michael Bailey was given some numbers as part of his end of season piece in the Athletic , and had said that the projected shortfall was £20m, £15m from last season and a provision of £5m with the expectation that crowds wouldn't be allowed into Carrow Road before January. He'd also said a projected £8m rebate to broadcasters would be deducted out of our year 2 parachute payment.
When we last were relegated our average wage was around £28k a week, this time one player was above £20k a week, and most players are on £10k - £15k. This was prior to the summer signings, but Jordan Hugill had been reported a taking a large wage cut from his West Ham money, leaving only Ben Gibson on large wages. The wage bill can easily be handled by the parachute payments, meaning that there is surplus money there.
Dave Freezer had said at the end of the January window that Norwich had a £10m-£15m transfer surplus after a final deal feel through.
I think the club is deliberately being coy about the numbers given that we claimed £2.5m from the furlough scheme.
