Charlie Taylor came to Burnley this summer as a free agent at the end of his Leeds contract.

However, as the full back was offered a new deal at Elland Road the Championship side were entitled to a compensation payment, which hadn’t been agreed at the time of his signing a four year deal at Turf Moor.

Taylor, 23, arrived earlier this month but a fee had to be agreed with Leeds, if it wasn’t a tribunal would be needed.

Fortunately the clubs have come to an arrangement without the need of an independent judge to decide the amount Burnley paid – this will remain undisclosed.

A statement on the Official Website confirmed an agreement:

‘Burnley and Leeds United have today reached an agreement over the fee involved in Charlie Taylor`s transfer to Turf Moor.

‘A tribunal had been set to finalise the compensation figure for the 23-year-old full back, who joined the Clarets earlier this month on a four-year deal after reaching the end of his existing contract at Elland Road.

‘However, the tribunal will not now be necessary after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed sum.’
