Saddlers net Ricketts windfall
Michael Ricketts
Ricketts left the Bescot Stadium for 400,000
Walsall will receive 420,000 from the sale of striker Michael Ricketts from Bolton to Middlesbrough.

Ricketts started out his career at the Midlands club and they negotiated a sell-on clause when they sold him to Bolton for 400,000 in July 2000.

"The transfer fee paid by Middlesbrough was 2.5m and not 3.5m," said Walsall chief executive Roy Whalley.

"Some sell-on clauses have been inserted but these are dependent on upon Middlesbrough achieving League and Cup success during the next couple of seasons.

"We receive 20% of the balance, amounting to 420,000."

Whalley, speaking on the club's official website, added: "While the Ricketts transfer is a welcome development for the club, it will not guarantee a 12th successive trading profit.

"It will, however, go some way towards helping the club overcome the 2.5m loss of income following the demise of ITV Digital."
