LIVERPOOL must pay some of their Premier League rivals millions in bonuses after clinching the title.

Jurgen Klopp and his team have worked wonders in the transfer market in the last few years.

But many players brought in have been heavily-incentivised, with Liverpool promising to pay huge fees to selling clubs if the player involved wins the league at Anfield.

With the Reds finally winning their first-ever Premier League title on Thursday, the Kop crew must now fork over.

Southampton are thought to be due a staggering £3million in fees, with Liverpool raiding the south coast club time and time again down the years.

Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana are all former Southampton stars set to watch their former club get richer.

Arsenal are also due a monster fee, with former Gunners ace Oxlade-Chamberlain now a Premier League champion.

Hull are set for a tasty little earner too, thanks to the deal which brought Andrew Robertson to Anfield.

Charlton, too, are set to pocket a tidy sum – due to the terms of Joe Gomez's Merseyside move.

Inserting such clauses into transfer proposals often allows clubs to sign their target for less than the selling team would like.

But the selling clubs also benefit from the one-off fee somewhere down the line should their new team be successful.

Southampton, who have often been mocked for their "feeder team" status to Liverpool, will certainly be happy with their business now.
