Will Grigg – a fair decision ?

25 Sep

So – the transfer tribunal has met and decided that the Bees must pay £325,00 for Will Grigg, up front. And that’s just for starters. With a possible £450,000 to add onto this, based on subsequent appearances and promotions, that makes a total of £ 775,000 (not to mention a sell on clause). As such, should Will help to steer Brentford into the Premiership then it will make him our record signing – eclipsing the £750,000 we paid for Hermann Hreidarsson back in September 1998.

Uwe has told supporters, via the club website, that ‘We are very happy with the outcome’ and believes the tribunal panel was very fair.
