View Full Version : Loan Clauses - Agreed price of 500k?

12-11-2010, 19:18
I've decided to start a career with Blackpool and I was starting to sort my squad out before I came across something that I've always been a bit unsure of. Basically, Luke Varney is currently on loan and under loan clauses, it says that there is an agreed price of 500k. I've seen it in the game before but I've never been 100% sure what it means.

Does it mean:
A. A transfer has already been agreed between both clubs and Luke Varney will join Blackpool permanently at the end of the season
B. I will have an option of either accepting or declining to sign Luke Varney permanently for 500k at the end of the season
C. Blackpool have paid Derby a fee of 500k to loan Luke Varney for the season

it means you can sign him permanently at anytime during his loan contract for 500k. if the loan ends the agreement is void

It means 'B'.

On the subject, Hatem Ben Arfa has a 5 mil fixed price in Newcastle loan, but in real life its an auto transfer after 25 matches. A little issue, but with a player as good as Ben Arfa, it really puts me off playing as Newcastle; their budget is not enough to afford paying the clause.

Okay, thanks. :) Yeah, I completely understand now. Luckily I have a transfer budget on 4m so that will be able to cover the transfer fee should I decide to sign him.
