Sept 10 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 9 points lower at 7,227 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.

* LLOYDS-BARCLAYS: Lloyds LLOY.L and Barclays BARC.L said on Monday a surge in late claims could see them pay out around $2 billion more each to settle Britain's costliest consumer banking scandal, the mis-selling of payment protection insurance (PPI). SAGE: British software company Sage Group Plc SGE.L said late on Monday it is evaluating a possible sale of Sage Pay, the company's payment processing unit. BREXIT: Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday he would not request an extension to Brexit, hours after a law came into force demanding that he delay Britain's departure from the European Union until 2020 unless he can strike a divorce deal. The UK blue chip index closed down 0.6% on Monday at 7,235.81 points as the pound ploughed ahead after unexpectedly robust economic data and as no-deal Brexit worries tempered, leaving internationally-focussed stocks in the dumps.
