There has been some confusion over the exact fee paid by the Black Cats to Hull over the summer and as a result the percentage in sell-on fees owed to former clubs Brentford and Charlton.

Centre-back Turner started his career with Charlton before joining the Bees in 2004 and later moving on to the KC Stadium.

"We have previously written to the Football League requesting that they ask the Premier League to carry out a review of the transfer fee following the transfer of Michael Turner from Hull to Sunderland," said Brentford director and acting CEO David Heath.

"Hull and Sunderland have to present to the Premier League Board at a board meeting on 20th November."

DisagreementHeath continued: "We have a disagreement with Charlton concerning the sell-on clause and a percentage of the sell-on fee in question is being held by the Football League.

"Both clubs have previously received their percentages of the sell-on fee that were not in dispute.

"Brentford FC have submitted their Statement of Claim to the Football League and the matter will be resolved at a Football Disciplinary Hearing during the week commencing 30th November."

Turner, having previously been linked with Liverpool and Manchester City, was publicly valued at £12million by Hull during the transfer window at a time when he had four years remaining on his contract.

However, when Turner did eventually leave the price was officially undisclosed.
