Burnley want end to parachute payments

Burnley chairman Barry Kilby is considering a legal challenge to the Premier League over so-called 'parachute payments' which he claims are an 'illegal subsidy'.

Kilby is preparing a potential case against top-flight officials after alleging relegated clubs are given an unfair financial advantage over longer-standing Championship teams.

Charlton, Sheffield United and Watford will each receive £6.8million this year and next year after failing to avoid the drop, while next season the three relegated teams will each be handed £24million, spread over two years.

Kilby told Radio Lancashire: 'I will be campaigning this autumn for us to bring this to court. 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.

'Our next step will be to bring it to the League's attention. I would like to see what the League is going to do about it and discuss it with the other clubs.'
