£385 a week from Zemura is a whopping bombshell


Warriors and AFC Bournemouth star Jordan Zemura is likely to make his Premier League debut next week, but will do so as one of the lowest-paid players in England’s top flight.

The 22-year-old utility player was one of the standout players for the Scott Parker-coached side in a successful Championship campaign that saw the Cherries return to the Premier League after a 2-year absence.

Zemura joined the Bournemouth Academy from Charlton Athletic in 2019 and signed a £385-a-week deal.

The arrival of Parker, who replaced Jason Tyndall at Bournemouth in February 2021, was a turning point for the Zimbabwean player, who began to receive regular first-team calls.

Despite the drastic changes that have seen him become a vital cog at Bournemouth, Zemura is still on the same contract as before he broke into the first team.

His £385-a-week contract was extended until June 2023 back in March, making him one of the lowest-paid players in the Premier League.

Zemura’s close friend and team-mate Jadon Anthony is on a similar contract, but a source close to the club says the duo are in no rush to sign new deals.

“I think both players are happy at the club and want to focus on their football at the moment,” a source told Soccer24.

“I think they know they can get what they want in terms of wages at Bournemouth or elsewhere, they both look quite mature and focused on football rather than money,” he added.
