Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season in Boro Forum Posted July 29, 2019 2 minutes ago, Will said: I suppose it depends on what we offer him. As far as I know it's usually pretty much the full value of the contract as a lump sum. What would the benefit? Pay him ~£1.5m now upfront or pay him the ~£1.5m divided by remaining contract months... I'm not sure I get what the point is.
