West Brom boss Tony Pulis wants a shake up of the youth transfer market.
Pulis wants to put the price on the heads of academy stars to ward off the Premier League big guns.
He believes ridiculously low compensation fees are no deterrent to clubs determined to nab young players.
Pulis said: “We have people come into this club at eight years of age and when they get to 14 or 15 if they are any good there is compensation if Manchester United were going to take them.
“That compensation is ridiculous. It is such a small amount. If people had asked me I would have said anyone from eight years of age right through to 18, if another club wants to take them they have to pay £5m.
“Even with the kids you protect your best players. We have young players, 10, 11 or 12 years of age where other clubs are trying to take them.
“It would cost them £50,000 in compensation which is nothing. If you had it in place that no youngster could leave West Brom and go to another Premier League club without paying £5m, how many clubs then would take the chance?”
