Good luck to the lad hope he does well , one thing that I never understand is why do we never disclose the transfer fee involved it’s always undisclosed, is that because the club don’t want the fans to know what’s being spent or is there another reason ? I genuinely find it strange why or what the big deal is or why it’s also so secretive

It's nearly always the selling club who want it undisclosed. . It’s been discussed on here many, many times.
Anyway Sky say it's a free transfer.

If it’s undisclosed why even bother saying it’s undisclosed because we don’t find out anything anyway

Why not say nothing apart from we’ve signed joe bloggs on 2 year deal from joe bloggs FC
As there are other potential deals before the window closes, it could possibly help in those negotiations maybe ?

the unusual thing about the Mitchell announcement was that it referred to 'undisclosed terms' rather than 'undisclosed fee'.

Its not clear whether that was a slip of the pen or instead means that the deal was more complex than usual (eg in the structure to compensate Mitchell for a wage cut)

Where does it say we paid a fee?
