AFC Bournemouth have refused to negotiate the clubs sell-on clause regarding England and Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana.
Lallana was poached by Southampton at the age of 12, whilst he was part of the youth system at AFC Bournemouth.
The Cherries received an initial £3,000 from a Football Association tribunal and later received £5,000 when he first became a youth team scholar and further £10,000 when he signed his first professional contract with Southampton.
There were no additional payments for when Lallana won his first England cap, but AFC Bournemouth could be set to benefit from a 25% sell on clause.
Both Liverpool and Manchester United have been linked with a summer move for Adam Lallana with the 26 year old valued in excess of £20million.
A report in the Daily Star has suggested that Lallana's representatives, keen to see a transfer go through, have contacted Bournemouth officials over the possibility of reducing the percentage to stop Saints hiking up their asking price for the England ace.
However an unnamed source at AFC Bournemouth told the Daily Star...
'A year or two ago we would have taken the first decent offer, but now we do not need to give up our inheritance. We have a rich chairman, Max Demin who will want all that is owed to us.'
With Southampton determined to receive their full evaluation for Lallana, this could force Manchester United or Liverpool to pay an inflated price to cover the additional payment owed to AFC Bournemouth or it could see any potential move collapse.
