The Borneo Post - - SPORT -

BOURNEMOUTH have been or­dered by the Pro­fes­sional F o o t b a l l C omp e n s a t i o n Com­mit tee ( PFCC) to pay an i n it ial 4 2 5,0 0 0 pounds ( US $ 574, 217) to Black­burn Rovers for the trans­fer of winger Con­nor Ma­honey, the Premier League club have said.

The south coast team signed Ma­honey from third-tier League One side Black­burn last July af­ter the 21-year- old’s con­tract at Ewood Park ended but the clubs failed to reach an agree­ment over the trans­fer fee.

The clubs re­ferred the player’s val­u­a­tion to a tri­bunal and the PFCC, ap­pointed un­der EFL and Premier League reg­u­la­tions, met ear­lier this month to de­cide the fee.

“AFC Bournemouth must pay Black­burn Rovers an ini­tial com­pen­sa­tion fee of 425,000 pounds,” the Premier League side said on their web­site http:// www.

“In ad­di­tion to the ini­tial pay­ment, AFC Bournemouth are to pay a fur­ther sum of 100,000 pounds on the player mak­ing 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 first team ap­pear­ances - a po­ten­tial fur­ther pay­ment of 500,000 pounds.”

Bournemouth will pay an ex­tra 250,000 pounds if Ma­honey makes a se­nior Eng­land ap­pear­ance.

Black­burn will also re­ceive 20 per cent of any prof­its made by Bournemouth should the topf light club sell Ma­honey in the fu­ture.

The PFCC is ap­pointed to de­ter­mine the fee for play­ers un­der the age of 24 when both clubs in­volved in the trans­fer fail to reach an agree­ment re­gard­ing com­pen­sa­tion for train­ing and de­vel­op­ment. — Reuters
