Last month the club also confirmed that it would pay its matchday and non-matchday staff while the Premier League is suspended.
“Even prior to the decision on staff furloughing, there was a collective commitment at senior levels of the club – on and off the pitch – with everyone working towards a solution that secures jobs for employees of the club during this unprecedented crisis.
