Hibs needed him back.9 defeats in their last 11 matches before today.Could have seen him back at East End Park quicker than expected!

Only the folk that have seen the contract for sure will know but typically they exist until the player leaves. The risk for us is that he runs his contract down and leaves for nothing which means we obviously get nothing so as the poster above says we need Hibs to either sell him or renew his contract.

We really don`t want either of the Old Firm to come in for him. Last summer, both were rumoured to be looking at him, and both were looking to structure the transfer as a part-swap deal.

In other words, if Hibs got a player or two in exchange, the cash element of the transfer would be significantly reduced.

That would be a horrible outcome for the Pars... much better to have cash bids from across the border.

You may be right, but how exactly a player-exchange is quantified for the sell-on fee will depend entirely on the words in the signed contract.

They might not have a choice. If he doesn`t renew his contract then it`s up in July 24 which means he can start negotiations with clubs in Jan 24. Effectively he`d just have to sit tight for 6 months before he can sign with whoever he wants and pocket what would have been a transfer or part of a transfer directly as a signing on fee. Hopefully that doesn`t happen but its not impossible.

Hopefully (for us) his injury will have put things into perspective and if he carries on scoring between now and the end of the season he will look for a move in the summer. Holding out until Jan 24 might seem like a good idea, but he could really do with a new contract next summer either with Hibs or another club.

Ideally we want him to sign a new deal with Hibs sharpish or even a club to come in during this window.They won`t be able to command a large fee in the summer with him being in the last year of his contract and clubs only having to wait a few months to sign him on a pre-contract.

That`s the key part. He`ll have to want to move to whoever comes in with bids and his options will be much wider if he runs his contract down. As stated above there is risk in that but there`s also a potentially massive upside particularly if he doesn`t fancy any of the bids. Hopefully we get a good outcome but his value will have decreased to a lot of potential buyers with his contract being closer to expiry.

Coincidentally our other recent goal machine Declan McManus has also just returned after injury for TNS and has scored eight goals in four games (and was only a substitute in the first two!). Was there a sell-on clause in his deal? He is also out of contract in the summer so any clause would probably be worthless, but you never know when clubs in relegation trouble get desperate for a proven goalscorer towards the end of a transfer window!

AIl the Mudryk talk has surprised me given what I`ve seen of him in the last few games between Ukraine and Scotland. A few nice touches but never £100m. Must have improved a lot since then or maybe just has bad days against us....or the papers have built him up and Chelsea have bitten.

Antony seems to have been getting a bit of stick lately but Mudryk could make him look a good deal!

Wolves have really struggled for goals this season and are floating around the bottom. Surely Nisbet is a risk-free signing? 5 million I reckon Hibs would want and that is chump change to a lot of teams in English Championship, never mind the Premiership.

Seen people saying that the sell on clause is anywhere from 20% to 30%. All speculation of course.... but if he was to move for say £4m (I think the Birmingham offer last year was £3.5) then that kind of money could be massive for us.

It could see the training ground setup sooner and possibly to a higher spec than was planned which would be amazing long term. Maybe fix the undersoil heating. Maybe get a satellite put up to reflect sunlight under the main stand 😂

What ever money we do get if and when he moves can be halved again as I am sure our investors will take a cut, as they will surely with any future transfers. Still any money that is set aside for the club will certainly be most welcome.

If we get a good a good chunk for Nisbet, we need to look at improving EEP as well. You can`t hear a thing over the tannoy. That`s needing replaced entirely. Usual wear and tear is needing looked at. The seats at EEP are pink now. Why did we use red anyway? We play in black and white, so surely the seats should be similar to what St Mirren have?

By what mechanism will they "take a cut?". It`s been discussed before and they can`t declare a dividend due to the accrued losses.

You can bet your house on that. Celtic and Rangers have repeatedly got their target paying much less than the selling club valued the player at. The normal tactic is to speak to the player`s agent and you can work out the rest yourselves. Almost every Scottish player would love to play for one club or the other, given half a chance.

What Celtic and Rangers fail to understand, is that screwing the smaller clubs in this way harms the "product" they`re trying to sell. You just have to look at the league table. Most seasons, the team in 3rd place is closer to the team that is relegated than the champions, in terms of points.

I`d ve fairly confident in saying that we have nowhere near a 30 % sell on clause. 20% is more realistic. Problem we have is if Hibs can`t keep porteous I doubt the manager will let go the only guy that`s keeping him in a job. Worth keeping in mind Celtic didn`t want to pay 2 million for mcginn before he went to villa.

Literally no one has said he`s our saviour. One derby day defeat in a fairly even game (did you even watch it?) changes nothing. If clubs were preparing bids yesterday they`ll still be preparing them tomorrow and its absolutely mental to think one game changes that.

It`s common knowledge that the sell on fee is at least 30%. it was even mentioned to be at 33%.

Yes it`s an abnormal percentage but that`s what suited the market at the time due to covid. We knocked back £600k in the January for him and then agreed £250k with hibs due to the pandemic and with the financial worries it come with. The deal struck clearly suited both.

We were looking at a windfall of more than £1,000,000 when hibs knocked back Birmingham so I`d imagine that`ll be the minimal we`ll get should he move this year as I can`t see hibs accepting less than what they`ve knocked back already.

I’m here to take over!!

I heard it was 30%, but I don`t think we should accept that as definite just because it`s common wisdom - especially as you`ve just stated that it might be a different figure.

Re Hibs, they`re in a worse position now. Nisbet has less than 18 months left on his contract and he`s just back from a long-term injury.

If they can`t offload him now (or get him to extend his deal), they`ve only got one more bite at cashing in come the summer time - and then they need a bidding war as any predatory club know that he can sign a pre-contract come 1st January next year.

EXCLUSIVE! Milwall in Nisbet bid
Millwall have made a big-money move for Kevin Nisbet as they look to take the Hibs striker to the English Championship this month.

The Easter Road club are now in discussion with the Lions as they look to land the in-form Scotland star in a million pound plus deal.

Record Sportunderstands the clubs are getting close to a deal that looks likely to see the 25-year-old head to London.

Daily Record just put that up the now....

the Sun have something similar although it says a seven figure sum, "Hibs would be reluctant to lose the striker but are willing to cash in should the fee be right - with the player also keen to test himself in England."

£1m is robbery tbh but better that than Hibs running his contract down and us getting nothing.

Hibs should be offering him a new contract and if he turns it down then take the best current offer.

Porteus is in the last 6 months of his deal and the paper talk is of a 500k move to Blackburn this month. That maybe gives some indication of what the price for Nisbet would be in a year.

The English Championship seems the most logical place for him to go; Che Adams, McBurnie and Dykes have all had some success down there.

If he stays until the summer, stays fit and shows some form, Italy might be another possible destination. Young Scottish players have been a good investment for Italian clubs recently; Aaron Hickey, Josh Doig, Lewis Ferguson and Liam Henderson. There are not many natural centre forwards (especially Italian ones) in Serie A these days either.

Fingers crossed he stays fit, progresses and then everyone; us, Hibs, Scotland his new club benefit.

That would be really clever. Reduce the amount of fee so they receive less cash to reinvest in players and if they do receive a hefty sell on fee then they`d still need to pay us our 30%.

Sell on clause doesn`t just over the initial fee received up front, but also any further amounts received for add-ons etc

Could be great timing for us, whatever the actual amount is that we receive.

Would it be a record transfer fee for the club?

Anyway, could be massive if it allows us to offer a few of the players out of contract in the summer increased deals to get them to stay (thinking of the likes of Edwards). May also enable us to get one or two in this week but will be a massive help in strengthening the squad even if that is in the summer.

Just hope the deal goes through and the 30% clause is even remotely close to being the actual amount.

Millwall`s offer of £2.3m includes add-ons so presumably we wouldn`t get a share of them until they were triggered. There`s also the ongoing saga of Ryan Porteous`s contract situation which could affect Hibs` response to the Millwall offer for Nisbet.

I think our record transfer fee is £650k for Jackie McNamara.

Even if we get £250k - £300k (likely could be substantially higher based on £2.3m, even taking into account the add-ons), then I really think the timing could be great for us.

As well as Nisbet only have a year left in the summer, he wasn`t at all happy when the Birmingham transfer was knocked back and the Hibs board will also be aware of that and his desire to move.

Anyway fingers crossed Hibs accept, as whatever we get is a bonus.

Latest article on BBC Sport is that Hibs are considering £2.3m offer. Some of that will include the value of the possible add-ons so initial fee may not be £2m. But saying they are considering a £2.3m offer is very different than saying he is worth over £2m.

Latest from Scottish Sun is that Millwall have made a fourth bid which is £2m plus add ons which take total fee to potentially £2.4m.

So if correct we may be getting £600k

Why? Most deals are up front fee (250k in our case) plus a % of any future transfer fee. It may or may not be the case that the % is based on any amount over the £250k, but that isn’t the same as deducting £250k from the % fee we get.

Unless the investors have loans to the club there isn’t any way for them to ‘recoup’ their investment.

It is definitely a 30% sell-on. That was the selling point for us when Hibs made the offer. Do you honestly think we would have accepted 250k for Nizzy without a substantial sell-on fee? It was a deal Hibs would have made as they were desperate to get him as they knew how good he was without really thinking about the effects it would have in the future. If it was a 20% sell-on, we’d have wanted way more than 250k up front. Crawford wasn’t a daft man when it came to this side of the game. He was brilliant at signing players and negotiating contracts.

Going by the twitterland mill, it’ll be 2mil up front with 400k add-ons. We’ll be looking at 600k at least. It’s pretty much a done deal and Nisbet is heading down to London for a medical. Cracking bit of business for us. I think Hibs could have commanded a good bit more than they have done, but sounds as if Nisbet has given Hibs an ultimatum to accept as he wants out.

It`s common knowledge that the sell on fee is at least 30%. it was even mentioned to be at 33%.

Yes it`s an abnormal percentage but that`s what suited the market at the time due to covid. We knocked back £600k in the January for him and then agreed £250k with hibs due to the pandemic and with the financial worries it come with. The deal struck clearly suited both.

We were looking at a windfall of more than £1,000,000 when hibs knocked back Birmingham so I`d imagine that`ll be the minimal we`ll get should he move this year as I can`t see hibs accepting less than what they`ve knocked back already.


Common wisdom? This is only the second time I`ve heard of that figure which considering the fee we got I think 30% is inflated. I think mid 20s is more reasonable. But until anyone that`s actually knows the deal confirms it which is not going to happen then we can only guess.

I think they`re referring to anything more that Hibs receive.

If our cut is 30%, we will be due that if an add-on is received - otherwise Hibs could agree a deal where Millwall pay nothing initially but £2m becomes due after 1 appearance.

If Hibs have a sell on %, we might be due our 30% of that.

Obviously, if there is no sell on clause between Hibs and Millwall - Millwall will take all the cash when they sell Nisbet and we would get none of it.

Our contract is purely between ourselves and Hibs but you would hope it would be tight enough to avoid any loophole.

we will get a share of any future transfer fee along with the other clubs he was at up until he was 23 or 24, 0.5% gets shared amongst those and its shared by how many years the player is at that club.

do we get 20%/30% of a Hibs sell on? i dont think that will be the case but would be more than handy if it was.

I am sure you would structure a deal where you receive a percentage of any sales proceeds that Hibs get.

If it didn`t work like that, it`s open to abuse.

I am interested whether legally deals like this are shown to the previous selling club I.e. Dunfermline? Interesting how such things work and if this is part of the player agent role.
Anyone have any insight?

I think of hibs (or anyone) allowed the previous club some sort of veto or input on their player transactions then that would be extremely stupid on their part.

I`m sure there will be terms around what is included etc in any remuneration from future sales but can`t believe we could have any input in the sale, the fee or the construction of the deal itself

Don`t all deals have to be registered with some independent body (UEFA/FA/SFA/EFL/SPFL?) which will be able to confirm how much is due to any club benefiting from add-ons? I can`t imagine the beneficiary club just has to accept what the negotiating clubs say is their cut.

Good bit of business, glad it`s worked out as planned by the chairman at the time. Around 750k all in from the deal, would make him our record transfer sale.

Good luck to nizzy hope he can cut it down there and be a success

Because of the injury, he’ll certainly have a more thorough examination. However, as long as he has been well looked after by the Hibs medical staff, he’ll be fine.

Hopefully that`s the case and it`s also as good or better for Hibs too. If he stays at Hibs this window the transfer fee will be even less in the summer and then he`s also only one window away from cutting his own deal and we get nothing.

You would imagine there must have been interest from elsewhere. Let’a hope if there is that they offer the same as Millwall did.

Can just see Rangers putting in a £1m bid and Nisbet downing tools to get the move through.

18 months is a long time to play with the reserves, because that’s where I would put him if he downed tools ?

It`s not impossible he went down with the intention of signing but got a bad feel for the place and changed his mind. It is New Cross and the fans are still Millwall fans🤣 Hopefully it is alternative interest that`s turned his head.

That part was said in jest but the wider point on him going down and it possibly not feeling right could be a possibility. Hibs may be driving a move to try and get a decent fee now as its only heading one direction the longer he stays.

He`s a professional footballer and Millwall are a fairly well known team. I very much doubt he`d arrive down there only to be put off by finding out some of their fans are idiots.

Hibs have shown their hand by revealing they`d accept around £2m for him. I suspect Rangers have shown a solid interest. Stating he wants to focus on Hibs is just being said to keep the Hibs fans happy as "I`ll hang around here until I get that transfer to Rangers" isn`t going to go down well!

As above the fan bit was said in jest (although there are some throbbers kicking about) but irrespective of how well known a team is you`ve got no idea what it`s like until you spend time around a place. It`s not really any different from any of us changing jobs in that respect. It could have been the facilities, could have been the people, could be he doesn`t want to leave or it may be interest from another club. We won`t really know for a bit.

Millwall I would guess could offer probably x 3 in wages compared to Hibs.

A lot of dough to turn down in the hope that your boyhood hero’s come knocking or you can get an even better offer in the summer.

Sounds like his agent has had a last minute call from another suitor…

Wanting your club to benefit from a wee windfall is not even slightly selfish, kozma. 🙂

Posters seem split as to whether he will end up at Parkhead or Ibrox. I suppose it could well depend on which school he went to. 🤔

His agent wouldn’t be advising on rejecting a substantial increase in salary unless there was another option.

Hibs supporter at work reckon Rangers is his destination and they want Scott Arfield, could be a swap (plus cash) or loan until end of season.

If Kevin Nisbet was to replicate his standard of living in Edinburgh in London he would have to double or even triple his wages. So maybe Millwall weren`t willing to pay it. Most clubs outwith the EPL are trying to cut their expenditure. That said I truly hope there is a club down here who is willing to match Hibs valuation.
