Southampton fee For Dickson Set.
With both clubs differing in the valiation of the player and unable to come to an agreement the dispute was settled this afternoon.
Meeting in London the committee will have heard from both parties before reaching their decision.
Because Ryan is under 24 the London club is due compensation which has been set at £125,000 payable now, with further instalments as and when conditions are met.
In addition to the initial payment there are further payments of £25.000 for 10/ 20/ 30 and 40 appearances. There is also a further £25,000 payable if we win promotion. Finally there is a 20% sell on clause.
Meanwhile Ryan has settled in well at our club and looks like staking a claim for the left back slot on saturday. Having played in the majority of our pre-season games, his energetic and accomplished performances have shown him to be a very useful acquisition to our squad.
