Burnley have agreed a fee of £10m with Hull City for a place in next season’s Premier League, our sources have confirmed.
Despite appearing in recent weeks to be prepared to give staying up at least a bit of a go, the Tigers have now backed down in a fashion that’s already being described as “distinctly un-tiger-like”.
In addition to accepting ten million of Her Majesty’s pounds for their continued top-flight status, a charitable Hull have even thrown in a free Robert Snodgrass to sweeten the deal still further.
Clarets boss Sean Dyche told Football Burp he was surprised at his rivals’ generosity, not to mention more than a little apprehensive.
He said: “It’s nice that they’ve agreed to get relegated on our behalf, but I’m wary of this free Snodgrass.
“I got given a free shot of wheatgrass in a shopping centre the other day and it was ****ing disgusting.
“Snodgrass sounds even worse, like something the BFG might drink.”
