London, Apr.28 (ANI): Premier League star pay has soared to an average 1.5 million pounds a year.

Their wages have doubled in the past four years, The Daily Star quotes figures released yesterday, as saying.

There are now calls for players' wages to be capped so cash-strapped fans can see ticket prices fall.

The top earners come from mega-rich Manchester City, with Emmanuel Adebayor, 26, and Carlos Tevez, 26, each earning more than seven million pounds.

The top-paid English stars are reportedly Chelsea's John Terry, 29, and Frank Lampard, 31, and Liverpool's Steven Gerrard, 29, on around 6.5 million pounds. (ANI)
