Rising Goalkeeper Ben Winterbottom swapped Blackburn Rovers for Liverpool a few days back. However, Liverpool didn’t announce the fee that they would pay for him. However, Football Insider reports that Liverpool have agreed a compensation fee.

In England a young player’s club will be due a compensation, even in cases of free transfers. The compensation is owed on account of youth development costs. A tribunal sets this fee in case the signing club and the youth club are not in agreement.

It is reported that Liverpool will have to pay £350,000. It must be noted that it was an injury crisis in the U-18 squad that forced Liverpool into this signing. He will hopefully develop into a decent goalkeeper. Another advantage of signing him would be his homegrown status.
