United and Burnley attend Eckersley transfer tribunal
Burnley will discover later this week how much they must pay Manchester United for defender Richard Eckersley.
The two clubs attended an independent tribunal on Monday which sat to decide a fee for Eckersley, who joined the Clarets in July on a four-year deal after allowing his contract at Old Trafford to expire.
Burnley boss Brian Laws revaled the tribunal committee will inform Burnley and United of its verdict in the next few days.
"We had a very good hearing and put our case across," Laws told Burnley's official website. "We remain hopeful of a positive outcome, but we must now await the verdict.''
Salford-born Eckersley, 20, made his senior debut for United last season after progressing through the club's youth ranks.
He has made three appearances for Burnley this campaign, although has yet to feature for the Clarets in the Barclays Premier League.
