Burnley seek help for Ings compensation


Burnley say the committee must determine how much Liverpool should pay for Ings

The Championship side have insisted the committee must take into account several factors before determining the amount.

Ings, 23, joined the Reds this summer after his contract at Turf Moor expired but the two clubs could not agree a fee.

The Clarets reportedly turned down a £5million bid from Liverpool, claiming they had offers on the table almost double that amount but the player wanted to join the Anfield club.

Representatives from the Premier League, the Football League, the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Assocation), the League Managers’ Assocation and an independent chairman will all be present at the compensation committee.

There has been no official date set for the tribunal but Burnley’s own efforts to try and keep Ings as well as the number of interested clubs will be taken into consideration before a fee is set.

United v Liverpool preview

The England Under-21 international could make his first start for Liverpool as the Reds travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for an instant response from his players, after they suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to West Ham United before the international break.

Meanwhile, United’s Wayne Rooney will be hoping to score his first goal in the Premier League this weekend after becoming England’s greatest ever goal scorer.

The 29-year-old scored a penalty during England’s 2-0 win against Switzerland to take his tally to 50, passing Sir Bobby Charlton’s previous record of 49.
