Burnley boss Laws hopes parachute payments dispute can be resolved

Burnley boss Brian Laws hopes the dispute over Premier League parachute payments can be resolved.

The new plan would hand them £16m in each of the first two seasons, then £8m in each of the two seasons after that.

"Obviously it means a lot to us and our planning goes ahead," said Laws.

"If it changed for some unknown reason, it might change our thought process. But I'd be very surprised if it changed.

"The Premier League means a lot of money that can secure the club's future for a long time to come.

"The parachute payments are part and parcel of that and the restructuring of it is welcome to us and the timing is perfect.

"But I know the other clubs are going to be dished out with a small amount of money in the Championship. There's a spread between them.

"Everyone is going to gain, but the important thing is the future of this football club."
