Title: Transfer fees
Post by: rod on February 23, 2016, 11:59:55 AM
From the top down there would  appear to be an increasing number where the fee is 'undisclosed'.....I wonder why and surely we the supporters have a right to know?!

Tom Meecham of St Neots has just been signed by Newport for an undisclosed fee - following a similar path perhaps to Conor Washington - Peterborough next????

George Thomson's move to FCUM was also for an unknown fee and if my memory serves me correctly there was a sell on clause when he went without a fee from us to Chester????

I wonder - did a few 's come our way????

sell on clauses apply to transfer fees.

Don't see what the problem is with Clubs witholding information about what fee they receive for a player or the breakdown of how that fee is made up. If a certain owner of a non league Club had his way he wouldn't even disclose numbers through the gate, apparently.

Dont think most fans expect knowlegde of players wages certain aspects of transfers and signing on fees, but to be told bugdet based on attendances and all other income is ? and yes we do realise that there is more costs than playing budget,things are moving in right direction but at a pace that is light years away.
