ED007 a wee question, hoping you know the answer to.
Did Celtic receive a fee for Bolingoli or did we just offer him a free transfer to free up his wages and space in squad.

{Ed007's Note - It has been put out by a Sky journalist that it was "a significant undisclosed transfer package" and there are some rumours flying about that it's £4 - 4.2 million + addons or that it was £4.5 million with no add ons.}

If that fee is correct Celtic won a watch hail hail.

{Ed007's Note - Anywhere near it and we should be considering Nicholson for a statue on The Celtic Way out of some of the money ?

If that figure is right then I'll eat a ten gallon hat.

For me it is just good enough to offload him - any fee is a bonus.

That sounds an amazing achievement by the club - all considering. Nicholson seems very astute, and shrewd in his dealings for Celtic.

Afternoon All

Nicholson / Board will still get abuse from some for not getting enough of a transfer fee for Bolingoli.

That's crazy money. Did he even cost us that?

{Ed007's Note - We paid £3 million I'm sure it was, Phil.}

Is there a particular reason why clubs sometimes don't disclose fees?

{Ed007's Note - They just don't disclose them publicly, Cory but all paperwork is lodged with the local FAs and in international transfers all the paperwork is logged on the FIFA TMS website. It's more a UK thing as clubs on the continent usually release the terms of the contract, sometimes even including the players' salary.}

I just can’t see it being that amount. It’s a massive fee for Mechelen. Every other player they have signed this season is a free transfer other than £675k for a CB. No one is paying that amount for a player who is clearly so much out of favour.

It's not really a massive in terms of football if he was a regular player for us we would be looking at 10million + but he isn't and wasn't really good enough still a great fee to get for the bhoy if true right enough.

Boli was highly rated when we picked him up and we did pay £3m.

I think its easy to forget that there is a player in there and doesn't he have some high profile family connections as well? The Lukakus or something?

It's high time that we played hardball with even our "duds". Clubs have to realise that they were on our books for a reason in the first place.

Highly rated by who? I remember watching his best bits and the absence of any defending was stark. He looked utter p ish and turned out even worse. An absolute disaster if a signing. I can’t believe we got anywhere near what was quoted. I hope we did but my no a feckin chance vibe is strong with this one, simply because he is absolutely s hite.
