Caldwell On Goldson Transfer

15 June 2018

Town set to benefit from sell on clause in Goldson's move to Rangers

Former Shrewsbury defender Connor Goldson has joined Scottish Premier League side Ranger F.C.

The defender left Shrewsbury to join Brighton & Hove Albion and Town are set to receive part of his transfer fee to the Scottish giants due to a sell on clause.

Town CEO Brian Caldwell is pleased to see the former Town defender doing well and gave his thoughts on his move.

“It’s a great opportunity for him,” Brian said.

“I know the Scottish league well, Rangers are a massive club and it’s a great opportunity for him to go and play.

“I think he will play every week there. He’s been hampered a little bit through his illness and injury as well.

“Rangers are a massive club and it’s a massive move for him.”

Brian also detailed how Town will benefit from the former Salop man’s move. He said: “It’s been said we have a sell on clause, which we do have.

“I don’t want everyone thinking we have a wad of cash suddenly appearing in the Shrewsbury Town bank account, all be it we would love that.

“I believe Connor signed a four year contract with Rangers and what tends to happen in these transfers is the transfer fee will be paid over four years so it will be drip fed.

“The percentage of the sale is on the profit, Brighton paid quite a bit of money in the first place. I’m expecting it to be drip-fed.

“It’s a boost and at the end of the day were still getting money and it’s a welcome addition to our bank balance. It’s likely to be over the next three or four years.

“People are quoting 500,000 coming into our bank. Until I get the full final details I can't comment but I’m guessing it will be spread over a few years.”
