Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti and some of the first-team squad have joined senior club officials in accepting wage deferrals during the coronavirus shutdown.

In an email being sent to Everton fans, club chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale said Ancelotti and his backroom staff had taken voluntary cuts and deferrals from the start of the crisis in mid-March.

A number of first-team players have agreed their own voluntary deferrals, some of which go as high as 50 per cent of their pay packets for the next three months, while others have given up 30 per cent.

Barrett-Baxendale wrote: "Everyone taking reductions and deferrals has volunteered to do so and - on behalf of the board and, I am sure, every Evertonian - I would like to express my sincere thanks to every single one of them for demonstrating such integrity and honour in helping the Everton family through this challenging time.

"This remarkable show of unity has enabled the club to maintain the salaries of all Everton and Everton in the Community full and part-time employees - all of whom have remained in full employment throughout this period - and enabled the club to continue to pay its directly engaged matchday and non-matchday casual staff since our club lockdown began on 13 March."

Some of the money from the deferrals has also been used to support the club's 'Blue Family' campaign, which provides support to vulnerable people in the community.

Barrett-Baxendale said the campaign's coffers have been further boosted to the tune of £400,000 (Dh1.84m) as hundreds of Everton season-ticket holders have opted to donate money they were due as a refund for matches they will now not be able to attend with the campaign to be completed behind closed doors.

The club's owner Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright are now planning to match that sum with their own donation.

Everton are due to resume their season on June 21 with the Mersey derby against table-topping Liverpool - a match in which Jurgen Klopp's side could seal the title should Manchester City lose to Arsenal on June 17.
