Ghanaian Players Abroad And Their Salaries
5 DANIEL AMARTEY
Daniel Amartey was a popular name with the Ghanaian national team until 2017 when he last featured for the black stars in the Africa Nations Cup.
The Ghanaian star plies his trade with Leicester City as a Defensive Midfielder.
He joined the English side on January 22, 2016, on a contract lasting up to June 30, 2022.
While there is no certainty of a new contract extension, Daniel’s Leicester deal gives him a whooping annual pay of 1,092,000 million pounds.
Breaking down the figure will see the Ghanaian star earn 84,000 thousand pounds monthly, 21,000 thousand pounds weekly, and 3,000 thousand pounds daily.
4 CHRISTIAN ATSU TWASAM
Christian Atsu was born in Ada for Ghana on January 10, 1992, and is a popular name in the Africa Country, though he hasn’t featured for the team since the 2015 Africa cup of Nations.
He plays as a striker for Newcastle. He joined the club from Chelsea in 2017.
His current contract sees him earn 1,560,000 million pounds annually.

In 2017, he signed with Crystal Palace on January 17, with the contract lasting to June 30, 2021.
His contract sees him earn a salary of 2,912,000 million pounds yearly.
Breaking this sum on a monthly basis sees him earn 224,000 pounds monthly, 56,000 pounds weekly, 8,000 pounds daily, and 333 pounds hourly.
Jeffery Sclupp’s salary ranks high and is in the line of well-paid footballers and is not a bad deal at all.
2 JORDAN AYEW
A veteran in the Ghana national team, Jordan Ayew, 31, plays as a center forward for Crystal Palace.
He first played with championship side Swansea city before joining Palace in 2019 on a contract that sees him earn 1,690,000 million pounds annually.
The black star forward earns about 130,000 thousand pounds monthly, 32,500 thousand pounds weekly, and 4,642 thousand pounds daily.
This deal makes Jordan Ayew one of Ghanaian highest earners.
1 THOMAS TEYE PARTEY
Thomas Partey was born on June 13, 1993 in Krobo Odumase, Ghana.
He plays as a defensive midfielder for Arsenal and the Ghanaian National team. He is the vice-Captain of the Ghana National senior team.
After playing for Atletico Madrid in 2020, he signed a new deal with Arsenal on October 5, 2020, with the contract looking to expire on June 30, 2020.
His contract makes him one of the highest-paid Athletes in Arsenal 2020/2021, with the Ghanaian vice-captain earning 13,000,000 million pounds annually.
In a week, Partey earns 250,000 thousand pounds weekly, which’s about a whopping 1,968,856.86 Ghanaian Cedi, while he earns 1,000,000 million pounds monthly.
Dividing Partey salary into days would see him make 35,714 and about 1,488 pounds in an hour.
Partey hourly pay is equivalent to months of the average U.K worker, so there is really no doubt he would be having the time of his life.
