Sunderland flop Jozy Altidore earns a staggering $4.75million a year salary with Major League Soccer side Toronto FC, it has been revealed.

But the Toronto striker, who scored a measly 3 goals in 52 appearances in a miserable 18-month spell with the Black Cats, is by no means the highest earner in the league.

Here’s the list of top earners’ 2015 base salaries:

1. Kaka (Orlando City) – $6.66million

2. Steven Gerrard (LA Galaxy) – $6.2million

3= Michael Bradley (Toronto FC) – $6million

3= Frank Lampard (New York City) – $6million

5. David Villa (New York City) – $5.61million

6. Sebastian Giovinco (Toronto FC) – $5.6million
