Why is it that Alex Revell's transfer fee is undisclosed, like other players we have sold on the same basis.
Is it because we are getting short changed on the fees we get for players, that the club don't want to look has under valuing players, so keep the fans in the dark.
You then get rumours on what fees we have received.

Guess it's an agreement between both clubs - and their accountants ;D

I think it was undisclosed because if the true amount was known it would start a riot.

Fees are usually undisclosed when they're conditional on things like appearances, goals, buying club's final league place etc.

I suspect that'll be the case here - which might explain the widely varying numbers (e.g. it could be 175K up front and earn us up to 400K if things work out).

Thanks David. Informative, I didn't know that

Most fees these days are the same. Look at the BBC list.
