Apparently they are set to make £3 million quid bid for Shankland. Although I think Shanklands probably will do well in the SPL he's not proven, so Big Sam must be worth an extra million at least.

Proven championship striker vs proven premiership striker.  No, I would have Cosgrove over shankland though I think shankland has improved massively.

Someone isn't telling the truth on this one.
Used to do a lot of business in Carlisle and keep in touch with folk down there.
One of my contacts is a season ticket holder and assures me the question was asked at a fans forum and the answer was YES and it is sunstantial

I am with you thoughTC, why when we had him on a pre contract would we agree to a sell on clause ?

Definitely no sell on clause. When he joined up the initial negotiations were to have him on a pre-contract to join up in the summer. It was Carlisle who were keen to do immediate business.....obviously they really didn't rate him at all......hence we paid £25k and got him in the January with no future sell-on clause.

Link to local Carlisle paper with quote referring ot minutes of Carlisle FC board meeting whereby they state there IS a sell on clause.

Absolute fucking lunancy on our behalf if this is the case

Is that not pretty much standard in all transfers with a fee these days? Since the days of Fraser leaving, we've always had one in. It's kind of what you need to do in order to sign a young player in contract. Probably the way it should work too. Carlisle deserve something in the same way as we would have if Fraser moved. No big deal.

Get what you're saying but to me the "big deal" is the level of sell on percentage.
Also pisses me off that, if indeed there is one then our club having been lying to the fans about it and to me that is also a big deal.
