Havant and Waterlooville have announced that the FA have ruled that Port Vale must pay compensation for striker JJ Hooper.
Hooper joined the Valiants and signed a two-year contract in August 2015. So far, he has made two appearances for the club.
A statement on the Havant and Waterlooville website states: The FA have ruled that Port Vale pay £8400 in compensation to Havant and Waterlooville for JJ Hooper, in 30 games that JJ played for the HAWKS he scored 20 goals and also got his England C call up.
Havant and Waterlooville are pleased with the FA’s decision as it seems fair that when a club develops a young player that they get a fair fee for that player. Lee Bradbury has produced a string of successful young players that have moved on to play in higher leagues, including Chris Arthur, Ollie Palmer and Pompey favorite Nigel Atangana.
