What do you think W Connection should do?  If the sell-on clause was 10% that would be 600,000 pounds or at today's rate upwards of 7.8 million TT dollars.

A 20% sell-on clause would be 15.6 million TT dollars.

And so on....

How should this money be used?

One report said it would be going to the Academy.



Transfer can fund 'next Kenwyne'
By Adrian Kajumba (Daily Echo)


KENWYNE Jones's former club hope any money they receive if the wantaway Saints striker is sold on will help them unearth the next big football talent to come out of Trinidad and Tobago.

Jones's former club, Trinidadian outfit W Connection, are in line for a windfall if the 22 year-old is trnasferred.

That's because a substantial sell-on clause was inserted in Jones's contract when he was snapped up for £100,000 from the Trinidadian outfit as a raw 19 year-old in 2004 by then St Mary's boss Paul Sturrock.

With Saints currently considering one offer for Jones, who handed in a transfer request last week and then refused to play against Stoke on Saturday, George Burley has confirmed that the front-man could leave before the transfer window closes at midnight on Friday.

And any deal would see W Connection receive a cut of the fee.

For W Connection that money will help them sustain the life-blood of the club that is their academy and, they also hope, will help them produce the next Kenwyne Jones.

w connection just continue to set a light in the pfl. john williams have vision for so and the dream continues. what you sow you will reap and this is just the beginning.

that is why i am perplexed that jabloteh bussing style on celtic saying their offer was low, they have such an inflated value on these youngsters who have not actually done anything yet. sign them cheap like w connection did with kenwyn jones($100,000) and have a clause in the contract to get a piece of the pie when they get sold to another team down the line. you make the money on the second contract not the first, the first contract is to get them out of trini and to get exposure.

john williams has the right mindset, hopefully others will follow.

That $$$ will probably get drop on solvency and expansion. Espcially recruitment and development infrastrucutre. They sold 1/2 the squad this year but still

competeing well. They need a goal scorer, depending on how Frias performs into the season.

Besides the obvious re-investment in the players, they can also:
   

     (1) give bonuses or increase the salaries of the coaching staff
 
     (2) invest in their coaches football education by sending some or all of them on a                   
          conmebol/FA/USSF/NSCAA/uefa coaching course

     (3) hire some competent administrative staff or re-train the ones they have.

   

     It will yield big rewards for the team and (maybe) in small ways for the country.

The Majority Will go to the PNM and the Next half will go to the TTFF

PNM getting some good Tax money that will go towards some good roti and stew chicken for the $100,000 Dinner.

At that price you know the food have to taste good.

Also the TTFF get a cut of all Tranfer fees
hence the "International Clearance" part of overseas contract.

I am sure that includes sell on clause as well.

Hopefully it is real money W connection get so then the TTFF will get some money and they can pay off the jacklisted players to come back play.

In a way Kenwayne could be paying himself with the transfer. :rotfl: :rotfl:
