Haha, fair enough, maybe exist in less than half of all loan agreements. But they occur often enough that they aren't seen as exotic or weird
Also, no I hope he isn't going to let anyone dictate who he picks, but then I can;t imagine anyone getting in Eddie's head like that. He's a pretty strong willed bloke. I'd imagine you'd view it as a 2M fee with a 25k rebate every game someone plays rather than a 1M loan fee with a 25K penalty every match someone doesn't play. I'm pulling numbers out my **** there, wouldn't be anywhere that much per game
My understanding is that is exactly how it works (non numbers)
Del, of course Eddie won’t be told who to play but in loans where the team wants their player to gain exposure to the league he will have to pay not to play him. He will be happy to do this as I am assuming he thinks he will be picking him having done his homework.
He also has the option not to loan him if it is irritating him. Plus this is all conjecture anyway as no such clause may exist... it’s just what some media outlets are saying.
IF we pull this off, and IF we somehow through a new signing or belief in someone we already have, solidify our GoalKeeping situation, and IF we don’t lose anyone....this will have been a glorious transfer window
