Whitehead off. Nominal Fee.
Danny Whitehead has left County to join West Ham United for ' a nominal fee'. Whitehead was under contract until the end of this coming season and so County have secured some money for the 19 year old.
A great opportunity for Danny and I am sure all County fans will wish him well. A fantastic chance for the lad to forge a great career as a professional footballer.
Danny's season for County last year saw 5 goals from 15 games. I always reckoned he would do well at County but given the rumoured state of the clubs finances, any money for the player would see him leave.
I just hope we got a 5 figure sum but more importantly a sell-on clause and appearances clause. Surely our CEO would have negotiated that?
So, a few more quid in the till which may keep the wolf from the door for a while longer.
I would expect some new signings this week or next. Our first friendly is not too far off and an empty subs bench is not a clever idea!
