The players of the club's first team have voluntarily agreed to deferrals of up to 50 per cent for the next three months.

In addition, Everton's board of directors, manager, executives and others have taken reductions and deferrals in their pay of up to 30 per cent.

The move, laid out by chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale in a message to supporters Tuesday night, comes ahead of next week's Premier League restart where Everton face Liverpool after more than three months without play.
