Liverpool brought in Danny Ings in the summer from Burnley. The player arrived at Anfield after his contract expired at Turf Moor but since then Burnley has cried foul play and has taken the case to FA tribunal.
Now they have warned Liverpool that the club could end up paying a record transfer tribunal fee for the striker. Liverpool are yet not made aware of the payment they will have to make Burnley but Dave Baldwin has warned them that Danny Ings will not be cheap.
Liverpool bought several players in the summer and Danny Ings one of the players who arrived as free transfer. However given the current situation, it is unlikely that the player will be free. Liverpool has plans to rebuild in the summer and the lesser they have to spend for cases as such the better it is. The chief executive’s statement is mentioned below.
“The reason it is different to the ordinary is this tribunal claim will be the biggest in history, The key to this was that we bring the claim against Liverpool, therefore we had to prepare an extremely robust case.
“You’re talking a documentation bundle of probably in excess of 400 or 500 pages with witness statements, evidence, analytics about player performance, the statement as to why we make a judgement as to what we believe the player is worth, compared to what Liverpool want to offer. You get your ducks in a row and do the job right.”
