    Academy player sold..........

    Good to see how well our Academy is doing and even more pleasing to think the money goes to Port Vale Football Club

    At least under Carol we now know that any money like that will go straight into the club

    It would but as usual money talks.

    Is there anything we can do to stop our better youth players being poached so much?

    I wonder what sort of fees we get for them. I imagine there's a lot of add-ons but I'd be interested to know what the initial fees are.

    No there’s nothing we can do to stop the lads going to a bigger club. We’ve got good money for Luke so you get on with it and try and develop another one to be sold.

    Academy scouts from top clubs come to watch Vale’s academy most weeks and pick who they want basically if anyone stands out. That’s the way it is.

    Literally nothing you can do at all.

    There is an agreed formulae

    £3000 per season he spent upto 12, so thats £12000 assuming its 4 full seasons, then £12500 per season upto 16 as our academy is cat 3 ?

    I think thats right ?

    By my reckoning that’s about £62k then, not to be sniffed at.

    Then there’s the add ons.

    The add ons for the young lad that went Man City were quite high.

    It’s sad that these good young kids never get to play for the Vale first team, but clubs like vale can’t turn that sort of money down, heartening now to know it’s not going in someone’s arse pocket.

    It's sad that these lads we sell would stand a better chance of a pro career by staying with us, rather than going into the Premier League abyss.

    £62k is a decent fee to be fair.

    How did Crewe get £300k for Trickett-Smith though?
