Billy Jones Fee Set At 500,000

Crewe will be guaranteed just 500k from Preston North End for Billy Jones, but it could rise to 1million, it was decided at today's tribunal.

Preston had already paid 200,000 to see the transfer through but the Football League ordered an extra 50,000 to be paid immediately. Another 250,000 will be paid in the new year to take the guaranteed fee to 500,000.

Crewe will also be entilted to add-ons. For every 15 appearances Jones makes for Preston, Crewe will recieve 62,500 up to his 60th appearance for the club (an extra 250,000 if all appearances are met).

An extra 250,000 will be paid if Preston achieve promotion to the Premier League in Billy's spell at Preston.

Crewe will also take a 20% of any profit Preston make from any future sale of Billy Jones.

In total, Crewe could receive 1million plus a sell on.
