Albion settle on Hall deal with Spurs

The Argus: Seagulls agree Hall deal Seagulls agree Hall deal

ALBION have ended their dispute with Spurs over Grant Hall’s move to the Premier League club.

The Seagulls have reached an undisclosed compensation deal with the North London giants following the departure of their centre-half prospect. Hall, 21, (pictured) rejected a new three-year contract offered by Albion before his contract expired last summer.

The Seagulls were entitled to compensation for his development, since he is under 24, and Spurs were keen to thrash out an agreement, rather than allowing the matter to be settled by a tribunal.

They had been tracking Hall's progress since last season in the development squad.

The former Lewes defender briefly broke into Albion's first team a year ago but feared a lack of opportunities this season with Gordon Greer, Adam El-Abd and Lewis Dunk ahead of him in the pecking order, together with Tommy Elphick prior to his move to Bournemouth.

Hall has been featuring regularly in Tottenham's under 21's team.

Vitalijs Maksimenko makes his Albion debut for the development squad at Millwall today (1pm) after the Seagulls secured international clearance to field their new Latvian defender.

The lad was good but was going to struggle to get into the team regularly any time soon, and it'll be even longer before he plays regularly at Spurs, if at all. Still, I hope we got a decent wedge for him.

I also guess (although it IS only a guess) that he was offered a better contract by Spurs.

The lad is already playing regularly in their under 21's.They have not just given us all that money for nothing,just because they feel like being nice.Many people in the game feel the lad has a big future ahead of him.Unlike Dunk & Elphick.If you read the story above you will see they had people tracking the lad last season.Along with many other clubs.At this point they all said,"Dunk & Elphick leagues one & two at best.

£1.5 million to us in compensation? or he was offered £1.5 million over his 3 year contract period with Spurs?

you are right that was the figure frequently quoted by the media, how close we got to that remains to be seen.

Not sure where everyone is getting these figures. Undisclosed usually means any figures bandied about are educated guesses at best, and made up nonsense at worst.

Another good start to a tread, keep it up guys.

As Fereeloader says, what ever we go for him it's extra cash that can go towards getting our striker.

I wonder if there were any add-ons to the final deal. Any extra payments if he goes on to play 100 matches, gets sold on for big money or plays for england or what ever.

This is I what I heard also and Albion would hardly have offered such a lengthy contract if they hadn't rated him so highly. Did well, the few times he made our first team. Suppose he though his prospects and finances were even better at Spurs. His choice and time will tell, but what is done is done.

I would be surprised if the fee was over £1m or anywhere near.
If it was, then I think the Albion will have done very well for a player who was number 5 in the pecking order of a Championship side.
