One way to deal with a sell-on clause?

One way to deal with a sell-on clause?

Pompey seemed, for once, as though we would be on the right end of a sell-on fee clause - something that had hamstrung us so many times over the years when we were on the wrong end!

This benefit was 'due' to come from 50% of whatever Jason Pearce left Bournemouth for.

Although this 50% sell-on fee saw a move to Peterborough fall through a couple of weeks back.

The likes of Burnley and Reading have also been 'linked' with Pearce, so we are not talking mugs in terms of sides showing an interest in him.

One solution to the problem that a few here on Vital Pompey had was why not re-sign him, and bring him back to Fratton?

Well, it would appear that this is something that we may well do...

The News is today reporting that a return to PFC 'could' be on. We would pay less than other clubs would have to as a compromise I assume?

I for one would not be opposed to this idea, as the defenders stock has raised since he left the club. At the time I was disappointed to see this anyway as I thought he had a decent future ahead of him, which is appears he is starting to grow into now thanks to his time with The Cherries.

What do you reckon guys, would you like to see Pearce back at Fratton?

Every player helps at the moment,and he seems to have come on leaps and bounds whilst at Bournemouth so why not.

I jokingly suggested this in the forums when the issue first arose the other week, but I'd assume the same clause would apply. Whatever we pay for him, 50% of it will come straight back to us, so pretty much a half-price deal.

Rug, why would Bournemouth accept less money from Pompey? They have a value say it was £10 plus now there is a 50% sell on clause say £5; that won't affect Bournemouth's base value on the player. Pompey won't get it for less than the vase value, if the player improves Bournemouth's base return will improve. As for the news well Vierra "could join" as " could" Ronaldo ; all equals the silly season includes Pompey again- not a bad thing imho

would they not ask pompey for 50% more though thus not losing out on money

if they wanted say £250k then we'd still pay that £250k but other clubs would actually have to pay them £500k i think thats what Rugs saying. As for Pearce i'd love to have him back, looked brilliant for Bournemouth and we could do with a few more defenders

Steve Clarridge was also released only to signed again at the end of his career, in this case we could still have the best of him. and £250k is good deal by any standard

Match highlights - Hartlepool 0-2 Pompey

The slim chances of a top 3 finish ended, despite a win at Hartlepool. Wins for Accrington, Oxford and Bristol Rovers meant Pompey cannot finish higher than our current 5th place.
