Burnley boss Laws admits Eckersley compo could eat into summer transfer kitty

Burnley boss Brian Laws admits Richard Eckersley's compo ruling could eat into his summer transfer budget.

The Clarets will learn on Monday how much they are to pay Manchester United for the defender.

"There has been some money set aside, but if it exceeds that it will eat into my budget," said Laws. "Hopefully the tribunal will favour ourselves up against a huge club like Manchester United.

"The situation has dragged on, but once we are in a tribunal we are locked in and have to pay what we have to pay."
