Thanks, Angus! Torquay To Cash In As On Former Star

Torquay United are celebrating after getting the cash windfall they had hoped for with time ticking on transfer deadline day.

With less than an hour to go, they heard the news they really wanted to - they would be cashing in on a former player.

Defender Angus MacDonald is now a Hull City player after the Barnsley captain completed a transfer to the KC Stadium.

Torquay officials inserted a 15 per cent sell on clause, according to Devon Live, when he left the club in 2016 for £100,000.

Although Wednesday’s transfer is undisclosed, press reports suggest fee could be seven figures.

That would hand the struggling Gulls a minimum of £100,000 - a year and a half after making that amount from the original deal.

It against demonstrates the power of the sell-on clause with so much money changing hands at the top end of the football world.

Torquay are in trouble, bottom of the National League and this weekend face a crucial match with Barrow at Plainmoor.
