A raft of Premier League players have launched a ‘collective initiative’ to provide financial assistance to the National Health Service in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic.

The initiative - named #PlayersTogether - has been formed to ‘help those fighting for us on the NHS frontline’ and it has partnered with NHS Charities Together (NHSCT).

"It is about we, as players, collaborating together to create a voluntary initiative, separate to any other league and club conversation," a statement released by the group read. "To try and help, along with so many others in the country, to make a real difference.

Premier League clubs previously said they would ask players to take a 30% pay cut in order to protect jobs.

This comes after Health Secretary Matt Hancock said last week players should take a pay cut and ‘play their part in this national effort’.

A number of Newcastle United players are on board and here is a list of the players that have publicly backed the #PlayersTogether initiative on social media.
