Announced as an undisclosed fee. How does that work then?

Only undisclosed publically. 

The relevant governing bodies and clubs involved will have sale/purchase and contract details. 

Probably best that teams we might be dealing with don't know how much we get.

The sell on fee percentage being a perennial reward for future sales is a great reward as long as the the player is bought rather than moving on out of contract. It means we as fans have more of a vested interest in former players doing well and is vindication of our investment in the youth policy adopted by the club. Hopefully that is the case...

I think he’ll go from strength to strength down south. If he does well with Villa you could easily see a £10million+ move in a year or two, specifically because of the cash in English football and because he has that potential.

Celtic have lost out big time as he seemed the natural successor to Brown.

In summary, great player, lots of potential, great move for him, Saints and Hibs and hopefully the gift that keeps on giving...well done Gilmour and co for your negotiation skills and to all those instrumental in his development in the youth teams at Saints as well as the managers who played him regularly and gave him time to develop.

Well summed up Bart.

Best wishes to John McGinn. Excellent career path - great to see a player who contributed to the St Mirren cause get two good moves and should be made for life. I will certainly be keeping an eye on Sunderland and Villa’s results this season as an aside from watching us.

Well played son.

Great move for John and all the best. Personally I think Celtic have blown it big time and the only chance of them ever signing him will be if he does a Thommo. Sportsound reckoned that Celtic were offering their top wage scale and Villa doubled it. I can see John playing in the Premier league for many years to come.

In fairness I asked the question which makes me the dafty not Ricky.

So any chance we can celebrate this positive turn of events, rather than using it as another opportunity to have a pop at Ricky.

That sounds more like holding a water pistol to their head.
If Celtic think they can’t get through the qualifying rounds without the services of McGinn, then that’s a pretty sad indictment of their current squad. Celtic are very much in charge of this situation not Hibs. 
Suspect Celtic might be in charge of this situation...

In fairness I did say that after it was reported McGinn only wanted to play for Celtic and at that stage there had been zero apparent interest from England,

Either way, I'm glad to have gotten it spectacularly wrong. Right roon ye Sellik.

We shouldn't under any circumstance be looking to blow the best part of £1m quid in the space of a year  -  so it should make no difference whether we get paid up front or in installments.  (unless of course Villa go bust)  

Even if we did want to blow the £1m before we get our hands on it,  the club could always ask SMISA to front it from the £2 pots and all the ring-fenced money. :rolleyes:

 

 

 

We must invest in a pair of specs almost immediately. Big law suit pending.

I think Brendan R also thinks Celtic got it wrong. 

Scottish football is entering interesting times.

Called plenty of things wrong myself. Celtic clearly thought John didn't want to play for anyone but them. Nice to see them getting stung for being cheapskates. Having said that they did pay £1.5m for Ciftci so they don't always rip off other Scottish clubs

By all acounts the fee is somewhere in the upper regions of £2,700,000 - as Div said on Twitter the other day, this equates to the highest fee we’ve ever got from selling a player...
Well Done SG, Previous BoD and David Longwell!

IF,what is being quoted on twitter via a journalist,then it MUST be more than 3M
