The fee we got from the sale of striker, Steven Fletcher was described as undisclosed at the time with various media reports suggesting it was anywhere between £5-8 million with £6.5 million being the figure quoted most often.
Today however another Fletcher, chief excutive Paul appears to have revealed that the amount of dosh received was about £7.5 million.
He is quoted by the Lancashire Telegraph as saying:
"We got around £7.5m for Fletcher, so that`s a £4m profit.
"The manager has been given a budget and will go out and spend it as he sees fit.
"We might end up with a squad of players that`s better than last year.
"We`ve already brought in Iwelumo so I think if we can look to bring in a mixture of young and old players, spending £1m or £1.5m on young players, that is probably what we`ll look to do - although it will be down to the manager and the chairman."
Paul Fletcher though in the same article also admits that a number of other players could leave Turf Moor if their agents get their way.
"We only want players who want to be with us," said Fletcher
"It`s hard to keep players now who don`t want to be at a club, but if people want to be here they are more than welcome'
The statement surrounds speculation that Tyrone Mears, Chris Eagles, Wade Elliott and Clarke Carlisle may be looking to move although none appear to have openly said they want to leave.
Fletcher talking about the agents role these days continued:
'Agents are putting their names around all the time. It`s a constant thing and it happens to all clubs.
"I think players move too quickly now and you don`t get that affinity and that bond with fans.
"Two years seems like a lifetime now. If players stay two years they could probably be in line for a loyalty bonus'
