Burnley unhappy with parachute payments

Burnley chairman Barry Kilby is considering legal action against the Premier League over the payment of so-called parachute money to clubs who are relegated from the top-flight. "I will be campaigning this autumn for us to bring this to court," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"It's a good, strong case. I honestly feel that it's an illegal subsidy from the Premier League that distorts our competition so badly."

Sheffield United, Watford and Charlton will benefit to the tune of £6.5m over the next two seasons if they do not make an immediate return to the Premiership.
