Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy named the highest paid director in the Premier League last season

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been named the highest paid director in the Premier League last season in an analysis of all 20 teams' accounts.

Financial reports for the 2014/15 season have been disclosed by every team in last season's competition, revealing the 54-year-old was paid £2.6m by the club as Spurs finished fifth in the league.

Levy's pay was followed by an unnamed director at Manchester United who was paid £2.5m, Arsenal's chief executive Ivan Gazidis who made £2.29m and Chelsea's Ron Gourlay who received £1.96m, analysis from The Guardian  revealed.

The English businessman has been chairman at White Hart Lane for 15 years and has led their £400m new stadium development plans.

Tottenham generated £196m turnover for the season, the sixth-highest in the league and nearly £100m less than Liverpool but £37m ahead of seventh-highest Newcastle.

Spurs' turnover is set to grow this season and next after manager Mauricio Pochettino guided them into the Champions League with a third-placed finish.

A report published by KPMG today named Tottenham as the 12th most valuable club in the world with an estimated value of £609m.
