Faddy's 'Well Windfall

Last updated : 16 January 2008 By Firparkcorner

He left us in 2003 for a fee variously reported as being between £1.25M to £2M but we get a great bonus as a result of the sell-on clause. It was reported at the time that we would get 12.5% of any fee above £1.25M (more if he was to go to the Old Firm). So a fee of £5M between Everton and Birmingham would mean close to £470 000 arriving at Motherwell.

Faddy was always on the fringe of the Everton team and never became a fixture in their first team. His stunning goals for Scotland kept him in the headlines and it hardly came as a surprise that his former national manager should target Faddy as he tries to move Birmingham up the table.

The windfall comes with the transfer window still open for a further two weeks. Whether Mark McGhee will see much of the cash remains to be seen but the money should ensure that Motherwell remain in the black for another season.

Thanks again Faddy !
