A FEE has been agreed between Accrington Stanley and Scunthorpe United for striker Bobby Grant, who penned a contract with the npower Championship club earlier this month.

Grant was out of contract at the Crown Ground, but due to his age, Scunthorpe were required to pay compensation to the Reds, meaning the two clubs had to strike a deal to avoid the case going to a tribunal.

The fee is thought to be around £130,000, with the fee doubling if Scunthorpe where to get promoted to the Barclays Premier League next season.

So lets be honest, we’re settling for the 130 grand aren’t we, anything else is an added bonus, a bit like coming home to beans on toast as a kid and thinking ‘oh hang about, there’s little sausages in there’, it’s just an added little thankyou bonus.

Scunthorpe’s General manager David Beeby told their official website: ‘For that (£260,000 fee) to happen though, Bobby would have to have a very good season and we would have to be promoted to the Premier League.

‘I think both clubs are reasonably happy with the figure that’s been agreed.’
