Bournemouth to pay £425,000 to Blackburn Rovers for Connor Mahoney

Bournemouth have been ordered to pay compensation of £425,000 to Blackburn Rovers for the transfer of winger Connor Mahoney by the Professional Football Compensation Committee (PFCC). This figure could rise to over £1m based on appearances.

The South coast side signed Mahoney last summer after his contract at Blackburn ended, but due to the players age, a fee wasn’t paid to compensate for training and development whilst at Ewood Park. A sum that must be paid for all players under the age of 24.

A Premier League statement read:

“AFC Bournemouth must pay Blackburn Rovers an initial compensation fee of £425,000. In addition to the initial payment, AFC Bournemouth are to pay a further sum of £100,000 on the player making 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 first team appearances – a potential further payment of £500,000”

Added to these payments, should Mahoney make a senior England appearance, the club must pay Rovers an extra £250,000. Blackburn will also receive 20% of any profits made by Bournemouth should the 21-year old be sold in the future.

Both clubs referred the player’s valuation to the the PFCC who held a tribunal under the Football League and Premier League regulations.
