Huddersfield Town are reportedly guaranteed to receive £2 million a year over six years from West Bromwich Albion as part of the deal that saw Karlan Grant move to the Hawthorns.
Reports earlier in the summer had suggested that the Terriers valued the striker between £16 million and £18 million, while it is understood the initial asking price Albion were quoted was £25 million.
The Athletic has revealed, however, that the deal agreed between the two clubs will see Huddersfield guaranteed £12 million for Grant.
The report claims that will be spread across the 23-year-old’s six-year deal, with his former club receiving £2 million a year.
What that will mean for money owed to Charlton Athletic from their sell-on clause remains unclear.
The Baggies have looked short of a first-choice number nine since securing promotion to the Premier League but have now landed a forward that found the net 19 times for relegation-scrapping Huddersfield last season.
Their pursuit of Grant was one of the summer window’s long-running sagas and went down to the wire, with the deal completed the day before Friday’s deadline for domestic transfers.
The striker could make his debut against Burnley on Monday evening.
Do Wolves and West Brom have these 10 things in common?
This looks like a fantastic deal from a West Brom perspective, you have to say.
They’ve landed their first-choice target and a striker that has not only proven prolific in recent years but at 23, should only improve over the next few seasons and could be the answer for them long-term.
You’ve got to say that it seems as though Albion have got the better of this deal with Huddersfield’s options in the final third significantly weakened.
