Owners have pumped £46 million capital into the club since January 2017.

Wages costing 78 per cent of turnover.

Palace accounts reveal £35.9 million net losses.

Crystal Palace’s owners, including American investors Josh Harris and David Blitzer, financed the club to the tune of £690,000 a week last season, according to latest club accounts.

The Eagles have released their third set of annual accounts since the American pair joined chairman, Steve Parish, in a general partnership structure at Selhurst Park in December 2015.

Harris, Blitzer and Parish each own an 18 per cent stake in Palace under the new arrangement, with additional investors having smaller stakes.
