Bournemouth due massive windfall if Southampton sell Lallana

Bournemouth are due a massive windfall should Adam Lallana be sold by Southampton this summer.

The Daily Mail says Lallana joined Southampton's Academy aged 12 after growing up in the Bournemouth area, earning the Cherries an initial £3,000 in compensation and a 'finding fee'.

The Championship club then received another £5,000 when Lallana earned a scholarship contract at Saints, and a further £10,000 when he agreed his first professional contract.

The £18,000 Bournemouth have received from Southampton so far, however, could be dwarfed by any future transfer fee, with Lallana valued at around £15million.
