Former Everton ace Michael Ball insists that the club will earn a small fee from Nikola Vlasic’s move to West Ham United.
The Hammers have struck a deal to bring the Croatia international into the club, spending £25m to secure his signature from CSKA Moscow.
Vlasic, of course, has history of playing in England, having featured briefly for Everton.
Will Salomon Rondon be a success at Everton?
The attacking midfielder joined the club back in 2017 in a £10m deal from Hajduk Split but he struggled to make a real impact at Goodison Park.
Vlasic made a total of 19 appearances for the Toffees, scoring twice and laying on an assist, before joining CSKA on an initial loan deal.
That was made permanent eventually but CSKA did not announce how much they paid to bring him into the club, although Ball believes that Everton will have received a chunk of the transfer fee due to a sell-on clause.
Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, he said: “He got an agreement to go away, he got that pathway, he’s developed and he’s ended up being a key player and got a huge move to West Ham United.
“I think Everton have done pretty well out of a sell-on fee, I think about ten or fifteen percent of that goes back to Everton.”
