Having apparently already picked up £1.6m from Fabrice Muamba`s transfer from Birmingham to Bolton this summer other small windfalls are anticipated from a 20% sell on clause in the David Bentley agreement with Blackburn and a reported 40% share of any transfer of James Harper from Reading.
It is not known whether Sebastian Larsson`s transfer to Birmingham also included a sell on clause but as it took place at pretty much the same time as Muamba`s it is reasonable to expect that it might. Larsson`s agent has said he is also considering offers with, reputedly, Newcastle and Blackburn among those interested.
With a £17m price tag on Bentley, who could even go to our close friends and neighbours at Tottenham, the player trading account could get an unexpected boost this summer. Someone did a decent job drawing up those contracts.
Meanwhile, another old boy, Nigel 'Nutty Boy` Winterburn has joined Blackburn as Paul Ince`s defensive coach. As part of the legendary Arsenal back four along with Dixon, Adams & Bould, which straddled the managerial tenures of Graham, Rioch and Wenger, he achieved cult status amongst supporters. He joins Adams and Bould who are both already pursuing coaching careers while Lee Dixon doesn't yet have a proper job and is working as a TV pundit in order to make ends meet.
