    The one setting out the details of the supposed offer - £19.6m, add-ons, buy-back. etc

    Obviously not, but this is twice the original fee?

    If he goes on to be a worldie that will be a cheap buy back.

    I think the more realistic outcome is that he becomes a decent PL striker, worth about 40 million in a couple of years rather than say an absolute world-class talent worth 80 million.

    In which case, at 37 million, we'd just be paying fair value to buy him back. That's not exactly some amazing deal. I'd rather just negotiate a larger chunk on the sell-on than a buy-back at that value.

    I suppose they're hedging against the extreme outcome that he becomes world class. The problem is we're not talking about buying back shares or property. He's a human being and it's his choice whether he comes back.

    He doesn't necessarily have to re-join us, if Crystal Palace were to receive a bid over the buy back price, we could effectively "buy" him back, and then sell him onto the bidding team to get the profit. I remember a team in Italy doing this fairly recently, i'll be damned if I can remember which team though.

    Does the player comply because they get 2 signing on bonuses?

    I'm not sure what the actual terms are, but for us to buy him back would he not have to sign?

    Yes he would, after a quick google looks like I've got this muddled.

    If they get a higher offer, they'd either have to accept our lower offer because of the clause (and we'd have to convince Rhian to sign for us), otherwise they'd have to negotiate a price with us to remove the buy back clause.

    Why would he not want to come back - if his leaving is an amicable move that gets him the playing time to improve as a player?

    If we acted on the buy back clause, that would mean he’d improved to the extent that he’d be able to command a first team spot at one of Europe’s top sides.m

    Nothing since he was left out of the Lincoln squad. We must be in ongoing talks with Palace and Sheffield United.

    After Sheffield United's start, hope we can at least pull out a few extra million if we are going through with this.
