Report: Burnley want £10 million compensation for Liverpool signing Danny Ings

The England under-21 striker joined The Reds earlier this month.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Liverpool had won the race for Burnley striker Danny Ings. The England under-21 international, who was also wanted by Tottenham Hotspur and Real Sociedad, agreed a move to become the second summer signing at Anfield, following in the footsteps of James Milner.

He was available for negotiations as his contract at the club had expired, but a fee will still have to be paid for his services.

Burnley are due some form of compensation because of the 22-year-old's age and that is now looking to be a sticking point to the deal.

The Lancashire Evening Post is reporting that the fee Burnley want for the player is being skewed thanks to the cheeky £12 million bid Tottenham made for the player in May.

The report claims that Burnley want a fee in the region of £10 million for the player, a fee which Liverpool are not likely to agree on. That would break the previous compensation record set by current Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge when he left Manchester City for Chelsea in 2009.

Liverpool have already made an offer of £4 million which has been rejected so the deal could end up being settled by a tribunal - considering the £6 million chasm between both clubs valuation of the deal.
