A Football League tribunal has ruled that Bristol City must pay Barnet £150,000 compensation for winger Albert Adomah.

However, that figure could more than double based on how many appearances the 22-year-old makes and how successful he is during his time at Ashton Gate.

If Adomah makes 75 appearances for the npower Championship club the sum would rise to £350,000 and if City, who have just signed England goalkeeper David James, win promotion to the Premier League, Barnet would net another £100,000.

The tribunal rejected City's initial offer of £100,000 when the player swapped clubs last month.
