Does Jonjo Shelvey earn more money than Joelinton? Newcastle's highest paid players - in pictures

The Premier League club take on League One side Rochdale in an FA Cup third-round replay on Tuesday

As Premier League Newcastle United prepare to take on minnows Rochdale in an FA Cup third-round replay on Tuesday, we take a look at who are the North East club's biggest earners.

According to data on Capology and Spotrac, two online sports team and player contract websites, Brazilian striker Joelinton takes home an annual salary of £4.16 million (Dh15.2m), or the equivalent of £80,000 a week.

Joelinton was signed for a club record £40 million last summer but has scored only one goal in 18 appearances.

Rochdale, who play in English football's third tier, will sense their chance of earning more bonus money if they can negotiate safe passage to the fourth round after holding Newcastle to a 1-1 draw at Spotland two weeks ago.

Above is a photo gallery of the highest earning Newcastle United players and their weekly salaries.
