West Ham did not include a sell-on clause for Declan Rice deciding to push Arsenal on payment terms and add-on triggers instead.
The Hammers agreed to a £100m transfer fee for Rice and £5m of add-ons, but initially, Arsenal wanted to pay this in five equal payments of £20m over four years, and the add-ons triggers, which were next to impossible and reference being Premier League champions and/or Champions League winners.
West Ham manager to reduce the payment terms to three equal payments of £33.3m over two years and semi-tough add-ons which are more realistic.
The Hammers conceded on a sell-on clause deciding that profit on a £105m fee was unlikely and also that Rice will likely remain at Arsenal for between 5 and 8 years.
A club insider told 6foot2 “There is no sell clause, we don’t think he will ever be sold for more and we imagine he’ll spend the next 5/8 years at Arsenal”
