Liverpool set for 30% cash windfall as former youngster makes deadline day deal

Posted by

Last term, Sergi Canos shone on loan for Brentford, scoring seven times in the Championship, and it’s that club that’s just bought him permanently.

In the summer, the young Spaniard rejected our contract extension in order to earn more money and minutes with Norwich (fair enough, really), but he’s failed to live up to the hype for Alex Neil’s men and has only played 29 minutes since August.

Sky Sports report that Brentford have had a £2.5m offer accepted and that the 19-year-old will sign today before the window closes.

Liverpool inserted a 30% sell-on clause into the 2016 deal when we sold Canos, say the Echo, meaning we should get around £750k when the deal goes through.

That’ll pay the squad’s wages for about a week!

Liverpool are expected to offload Mamadou Sakho at some point today, say Sky Sports, which will actually mean since Jurgen Klopp arrived, we’d have made a profit in the transfer market.
