Peterborough United Director of Football Barry Fry has revealed that the club have netted £1m for Brentford winning promotion to the Premier League.

The club sold Ivan Toney to the Bees at the beginning of the season and he has gone on to inspire the club to promotion from the Championship.

The 25-year-old striker made a total of 45 appearances in the second-tier, scoring 31 goals in the regular season, while also laying on 10 assists.

He also scored twice in three games in the play-offs, including a goal in the play-off final against Swansea City.

Peterborough sold Toney for a price of £5m but it could rise to £10m with various add-ons, thanks to the deal struck by Fry.

As a result, Brentford’s promotion to the Premier League has seen Posh net a windfall of £1m, which could rise again if the Bees succeed in the top-flight.

Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, Fry was asked if Peterborough had a sell-on fee included in the deal, and said: “Of course. We’re in a win-win situation. We got a million pounds for Brentford going up.”
