    Re: Kion Etete- Spurs striker

    Didn't City try to do something similar a few years ago?
    Buy a player on the cheap but agree with the selling club to play a full 'release' addition if we got promoted and sell back if we didn't.
    I seem to remember VT threatening to go to court for restriction of trade or something when the league stopped it.

    My memory is failing me, but I think it was in the very early Eighties we signed a guy (who’s name I forget), from an American club (I think it was… or maybe Canadian), for a club record fee of about £300,000 (or something like that).
    He was very skilful (I do remember that 🤭), but we sold him back to the American/Canadian club for exactly the amount we paid for him (£300k?) after about a month (or 2), having played a handful of games.
    Or I could be mistaken 🤣

    Hopefully the club can get it over the line, get another body in the building and the player wants to be a part of it.

    And the Rothmans Football Yearbook had Ingram down as our record signing until Sam Hammam’s spending spree nearly twenty years later I believe.

    I see it as good news that they rate him highly enough to insist on a buy back clause.

    Unless it's just a creative way to play the loan system.

    If we sign another striker on loan that'll be 3 loans (Philogene and Kipre the other 2)...we're allowed 5 so would that mean another 2 opportune signings on deadline day?

    Another CB and winger and we would have some real strength in depth then
    Also we can move a couple out on loan

    I suppose if he comes here and plays to a standard that means Spurs want him back then we’re definitely going to benefit on the pitch, even if we are unlikely to be able to do so in terms of value for money when he leaves.

    As for loans, we were told that the plan was to use all five of them, but I’d been assuming that had died a death because we have made so many permanent signings.

    We'll probably keep 2 loan slots for January in case of injuries to key players.

    Cardiff can purchase a player that they otherwise may not have been able to acquire had it not been for the clause. In addition, the buyback figure is usually significantly higher than the original transfer fee.

    Thanks for that - I was wondering how they worked.

    Appears a good piece of business from City to me based on that article.

    Re: Kion Etete- Spurs striker

    Is the buy back clause that relevant? Wouldn't such a clause depend on the player agreeing to return? And why would a player getting regular first team football go back to a club where he stands little or no chance of playing in the first team?

    A very curious ‘transfer’ all round especially when you consider that the club was skint at the time.

    The way i see it is that if he plays well for us and attracts interest from another club, then we will get a fee for selling him back to Spurs before he is sold on at a higher price tothe interested club.
