Burnley have announced their chairman Mike Garlick has been invited on to a select panel to help with the appointment of the next head of the Premier League.

Garlick is to be part of the Premier League Remuneration Board, alongside Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck and Leicester chief executive Susan Whelan.

The board will meet to interview for a replacement for Richard Scudamore, who on June 7 announced his intention to stand down as the Premier League’s executive chairman at the end of this year.

Garlick said on Burnley’s official website: “I am delighted and consider it a great honour to be invited to join the Premier League Renumeration Board.

“The board’s work is wide-ranging and, in tandem, I hope I can play a part in securing a worthy successor to Richard, who has done a magnificent job as head of the Premier League for almost 20 years.”
