Professional football in England has been suspended since March 13 due to the pandemic with several clubs putting non-playing staff on leave

The English Football League has agreed a "compromise proposal" with the body representing the country's professional players, allowing clubs to defer 25% of their wages for April amid the new coronavirus outbreak, it said Tuesday.

Professional football in England has been suspended since March 13 due to the pandemic with several clubs putting non-playing staff on leave. 

The EFL said the agreement followed discussions focused on League One and League Two clubs.

The Professional Footballers' Association previously accepted that players would have to be flexible and share the financial burden of the impact of the virus, which has infected nearly two million people globally, killing more than 119,000.

The EFL, which oversees the three tiers below the Premier League - the Championship, League One and League Two - added that players earning less than 2,500 pounds ($3,147) per month will be paid in full and the 25% reduction must not take any player below 2,500 pounds per month.

The EFL expected Championship (second-tier) clubs to make individual decisions.

The EFL and PFA will also form a working group of six club captains/PFA delegates from League One and Two, supported by a representative nominated by the PFA, to engage in dialogue in respect of players' wages.
