Dickson fee set by tribunal

Daily Echo: Ryan Dickson Ryan Dickson

SAINTS will have to pay Brentford an initial £125,000 for Ryan Dickson, after a tribunal set the transfer fee this afternoon.

But that sum could double after a number of add-ons were included.

Saints signed the 23-year-old left-back on a free earlier this summer, after Dickson rejected a new deal at Griffin Park.

However, as he is under 24, Saints are required to pay compensation.

The two clubs could not agree a fee, with their valuations some distance apart.

Saints were understood to be offering about £100,000, while Brentford initially wanted half a million.

The Bees were confident they would receive at least £300,000 at a tribunal.

But at most they will receive £250,000.

Saints must pay an initial £125,000, but will have to pay £25,000 when Dickson plays 10, 20, 30 and 40 competitive first-team games for the club.

They will also have to pay a further £25,000 if they achieve promotion.

So, if Saints go up and Dickson plays the majority of the season, the deal will almost certainly cost Saints £250,000.

A 20 per cent sell-on fee has also been included.

High Class Robbery and I love it. Pardew has done some very good business there, I would be livid if I was a Brentford fan. Quality player for a small price. Just like Barnard we paid a small price and are now reaping the benefits. Couple more signings and we are sorted for the season.

The Ealing Gazette reports that Brentford also get 25K for each 10 first team games he plays up to 100K plus 25K when Saints are promoted and 20% of any sell on fee. I think that's a good deal for all concerned.

As a Brentford fan, I'd say that between £200k and £250k is about fair. He is a good League One player, but was only our fifth best player last season, and personally I'd rather have Harding in my team, based on the few times I've seen him.

Even at the full £250k it's fantastic business for Saints. Dickson was excellent on Saturday from start to finish, even though for the last 15 minutes he was obviously knackered.

We do still need someone to cover in central midfield, another striker and (desparately) cover on the right side of midfield.

Pleased with this, but i am worried about the lack of QUALITY signings so far.. with waigo and antonio gone (our super subs who could change the pace of a game) Although i fully support Alan Pardew and am happy he stayed you do have to wonder whats going on, after the stress of last pre season and the late appointment of pardew most of our players entered the squad after the season had begun and it took time for them to gel, this in turn had a major knock on effect and ultimately ended with us not making the playoffs. Surely we should have got the squad sorted before now we also seem to have lost out on some decent free transfers.
like i said, im fully behind alan pardew but you do wonder if theres a problem at board level, A fair bit was spent last august and january so surely we need more to follow and therefore improve, Many bookies have us as clear favourites to win the league but if you check out some of the signings of other clubs i cant see it being that easy.
Come on you Reds... lets get of to a flying start on saturday.

good post, but we all have to take into account the funds that were made available to AP for the final push last season .
We didnt quite make the playoff,s but IMHO a good gamble regardless and we got some great players in.

A difficult problem, personally I would gamble and go for broke, but its not my cash...........

I think AP has been outstanding in the transfer markets throughout his short time at Saint's, What pleases me most is that he hasn't just gone out a brought players for the sake of it and has secured quality players who can still improve who are also at a very good age to develop in the future. Saint's have spent more than any other league 1 team but having put together an excellent quality squad of players Saint's don't need to spend loads this time around. We do lack cover and I am concerned by the lack of pace in our side I'm not to bothered about Waigo, he did o.k but for me Antonio was excellent and brilliant and I'm pretty sure AP will be looking to secure him permantly. Ryan Dickson sounds like an absolute bargain at the tribunel price.

I like this, good comments all round. I think we can take it pretty much for granted that there will be a couple more signings before Feb 1st. so long as the present injuries are only niggles there is no panic particularly if Connolly and Barnard are startimg to gel.
Sholings hard man posted above that the season is a slog and doesn't depend on one months results. In fact surely the best time to falter IS in Aug. when it is possible to get replacements in during the 'window'.
I wonder does anyone have more than a vague idea as to whether the weekly wage bill is now actually lower than it was at the end of the season? After all, how many have left,13 is it (and Pulis at the end of Aug.). and so far only 3 introduced.
The deal for Dickson seems excellent,paid for by our old friend Jelle remember. That was a nice suprise. Lets have a couple more please...!
Good Luck tonight, no injuries for anyone.

Sorry but the signings so far have been good "quality" at good prices too. Yes we all want a few more but remember that as the only club expected to have "cash to splash" every agent and club negotiator is out to take us for every penny they can get.

Pards said clearly in his video interview that what is on offer in the market today is always better in eight days time. He has deliberate said that he'll give nothing away at all about transfer plans as he, Nicola and their head scouts quietly bring in the additions.

They have consistently spent the most in the league and may again in this window.. it's not over yet.

The squad as it is has to be the best in L1. No way is Pards showing his hand though keeping his powder dry. Deliberately leaving the announcements to the very last minute.. Frustrates us but also the opposition... The kind of player likely to come in will fit in quickly.

Have faith that he'll have at least one jaw dropping signing and a couple of back ups.. but don't expect silly money to be splashed on primadonna types.

Note the spare numbers on the recent renumbering of the squad.. 8, 11 on offer for a couple of stars maybe??
13 for Bart when he signs
24 and 25 for a couple of classy lads?

Pards will have us in the prem on time with bells on.. believe it..

Look out L1 be very afraid

The squad as it is has to be the best in L1. No way is Pards showing his hand though keeping his powder dry. Deliberately leaving the announcements to the very last minute.. Frustrates us but also the opposition... The kind of player likely to come in will fit in quickly.

Have faith that he'll have at least one jaw dropping signing and a couple of back ups.. but don't expect silly money to be splashed on primadonna types.

Note the spare numbers on the recent renumbering of the squad.. 8, 11 on offer for a couple of stars maybe??
13 for Bart when he signs
24 and 25 for a couple of classy lads?

Pards will have us in the prem on time with bells on.. believe it..

Look out L1 be very afraid
The Saints are Coming
Bart was wearing 24 on Saturday

I agree Tirau Dan, I believe AP is playing a canny game. I'm sure there were a number of injuries for the game on Saturday but as another poster noted from another Saints thread, Peter Reid,the new Plymouth manager was watching the game from the comfy seats and I doubt if AP wasn't aware of his prescence.
Other clubs are inevitably going to milk the fact that Saints are cash rich and try and exploit the situation when it is Saints who are tracking someone.
AP has not made a duff signing to date so I say be patient Saints fans in the words of a famous film "he will come" or hopefully ins Saints case "they will come".
Roll on Saturday, it should be a great game that is being shown on Sky,I just hope that won't put the Mockers on Saints as has proved the case in the past

I too enjoyed this inside info. Thanks. I had been wondering for a week or so what had happened to Racine who I think has a good future ahead of him.
I suspect that Pulis is being granted bags of pitch time to assist him to obtain a new club next month.
If Wotton has a nice sense of fun it will have a beneficial effect on the youngsters around him at the club. They after all are under immense pressure to keep impressing on a daily basis to obtain a full contract.

That sense of fun soon disappears when he pulls a Saints shirt on. He bullies the youngster during games in an attempt to make up for his own short comings. A bitter man when wearing football boots!

I saw Aliadiere was free, would be good for us. He showed a lot of promise at Arsenal but never really made it. AP will sort him out!!
