Aston Villa and Rangers 'agree fee' to avoid FIFA intervention over transfer of goalscoring starlet Rory Wilson
Aston Villa and Rangers have come to an agreement over the fee for Rory Wilson’s transfer to the English Premier League club, according to reports.
The Birmingham club believed that this scenario would only result in them paying a cross-border trainer compensation package for the striker, while Rangers felt they would be due a substantially larger sum of cash.
The Scottish Sun reports that Aston Villa were confident their side of the story would be upheld if the matter went to a FIFA tribunal and the two parties this week settled on a fee, believed to be in the region of £350,000 plus add-ons.
Wilson scored 49 goals at youth level this season, including for Scotland Under-17s, and is viewed as one of the country’s most promising forwards.
