Cherries Banking On Lallana?

Last updated : 13 December 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Even though Adam Lallana is a Southampton player, it has been revealed that he started life in the Cherries school boy set up some 8 years ago. Since then the Cherries have profitted with payments as Lallana has stepped up to sign scholarship and professional contracts with our Hampshire neighbours.

Furthermore, should Lallana be a target for Tottenham Hotspurs, as has been speculated, then the Cherries would be entitled to a massive 25% of any transfer fee, which could dwarf the TV revenue bonus the Cherries have received as a result of live FA Cup matches.
