Details from today's Tribunal...

A FOOTBALL League tribunal has today instructed Brentford to pay The Saddlers an initial fee of £325,000 compensation after signing Northern Ireland international striker, Will Grigg.

The 22 year-old striker joined The Bees on a three-year contract in July after his contract here at Banks's Stadium expired.

The two clubs could not reach an agreement on compensation and a tribunal was held today to decide the amount to pay.

As well as the initial fee, we are due £30,000 for every 20 competitive first-team games he plays up to a maximum of 100 (i.e. £150,000).

The Bees will have to pay £50,000 if promotion to The Championship is achieved and £250,000 if promotion to the Premier League is secured.

There will also be a 20% sell-on clause if Grigg is transferred from Brentford to another club.
