Chairman Reveals What Percentage Of The Fee That Newcastle Will Get If Ivan Toney Move Goes Through This Month

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has confirmed that Newcastle will receive 30% of the League One club’s cut from Brentford’s sale of Ivan Toney.

When Brentford signed the player from Peterborough originally, they included a sell-on clause, and, speaking on his Hard Truth podcast, MacAnthony said there is an agreement in place for the Magpies to receive a significant transfer windfall:

“We paid Newcastle a transfer fee of £350,000 spread over three years. We have received £10 million so far from Brentford and we will receive X amount – I’m not allowed to say the number – of any future profit and Newcastle will receive 30% of what we get from us.”

“We earn money every time Ivan moves and so do Newcastle. That’s how these deals are structured and I’m all for it. It’s like a chain reaction and it’s the best thing.”

How much could Newcastle receive from Toney’s sale?

Reports suggest that Brentford have also agreed a 30% sell-on clause with Peterborough which means that, if the England international is sold for £100m, Newcastle will get £9m.

Of course, it’s up for debate whether Brentford will sell Toney for that amount. There is a lot of interest in the striker, with both Chelsea and Arsenal keen.

However, there is a feeling the Toney may yet stay at the Gtech Community Stadium until the end of the season.

A sale next summer will not be good for Newcastle

If Toney is not sold this month, his value will begin to depreciate as his contract with Brentford expires in 2025. There is no chance that a club will pay £100m for a player reaching the final year of his current deal.

There is also another possible scenario, where Toney decides to run down his contract and leave on a free next year. That could mean the Magpies wouldn’t get any money at all.
