Everton will receive a big payout from European football’s governing body UEFA for contributing seven players to last summer’s Euro 2016 tournament. Per the UEFA regulations, clubs are paid a compensation for the wear and tear on their players and because their summer breaks are so severely restricted.

The Toffees’ amount came to £1.25m for seven players who took part - Romelu Lukaku (Belgium), Ross Barkley and John Stones (England), Aiden McGeady, Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy (Republic of Ireland) and Shani Tarashaj (Switzerland).

UEFA shared £32.8m of revenue with 60 English clubs, from a total of £128m to 641 European clubs from 54 national associations, with one third of that set aside for clubs who released players for the qualifiers and two thirds for those who sent players to last summer's tournament in France.

Here are the clubs that received the top ten highest payments -

  1. Juventus - £2.99m
  2. Liverpool - £2.91m
  3. Tottenham Hotspur - £2.63m
  4. Manchester United - £2.58m
  5. Bayern Munich - £2.49m
  6. Real Madrid - £2.17m
  7. Arsenal - £2.11m
  8. Barcelona - £2.02m
  9. AS Roma - £1.83m
  10. Southampton - £1.8m
