It might not amount to much, but hey, at least we’re getting something out of it.
And who knows where that extra money might lead us in the future?
A report from Sky Sports claims that there are as many as four clubs that are looking at bringing in former Sheffield United winger David Brooks.
A report from Examiner Live adds that the Blades inserted a clause into the initial deal to take the Welshman to Dorset, with the Blades due 10% of any profit that the club manages to make past the £12m that the relegated side paid for him initially.
So for example, if Bournemouth were to sell him for £20m, then we’d be getting £800,000 on the deal (assuming my maths is right, it never was my strong point, feel free to correct me in the comments below if I’m wrong).
Will David Brooks play for us again?
I think the fact that there are a number of clubs after him is a good thing, because hopefully that will start a bidding war and keep the number going up further and further, increasing the amount that we could get for him.
Of course what would be fun is if we were to try and bring him back to the club, because then we’d essentially be getting a discount on him, and that’d be something that would leave a number of fans happy from what I can tell.
What about you? Do you see this as good news for Sheffield United? Or does the amount not really matter to you in the grand scheme of things?
