Liverpool ordered to pay record tribunal fee to Burnley for Ings

The England striker’s move to the Reds could cost the Anfield club more than €10m in a compensation payout.

LIVERPOOL WILL PAY Burnley £6.5 million (€8.4m) for forward Danny Ings, with a possible £1.5m (€1.95m) in add-ons following a decision by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.

Ings moved to Anfield from Turf Moor when his contract expired at the end of last season, but Burnley were entitled to compensation as the England international is under 24.

The fee due from Liverpool is a record for one ordered by an English tribunal, surpassing the £3.5m plus a further £3m based on future appearances that Chelsea had to pay Manchester City for Daniel Sturridge in 2010.

Burnley will also benefit from a 20 per cent sell-on clause should Liverpool profit from any future move made by the player.

Ings scored three goals in eight appearance for Liverpool this season and earned an England debut in October’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania.

It proved to be his final senior appearance of the campaign after the 23-year-old suffered an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury in his first training session under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
