On Tuesday it was announced that Leeds United and Burnley had finally agreed on a compensation package for full back Charlie Taylor.
The fee is said to be around £6million with add-ons that will rise to around £7million, a hefty fee and more than what was predicted by many supporters and journalists.
With the deal agreed and Taylor already putting pen to paper on a four year deal at Turf Moor, the burning question is what will Leeds do with this money?
Could the money be a fee that somewhat balances the books or is it more money in the war chest for TC and co to grab a few more signings.
Leeds have had a busy summer so far and a costly one at that. Their highest fees paid since 2004 came with the signings of Pontus Jansson and Samu Saiz for a believed £3.5mil and £3mil respectively.
Then there are the other seven signings including Alioski (£2mil), Sacko (£1.7mil), Mateusz Klich (£1.4mil), Wiedwald (£450k), Caleb Ekuban (£400k) and then the loan signing of Matthew Pennington and the free signing of Vurnon Anita and any signing bonus he may have had Leeds are well over £12million spent this window.
The only permanent outgoing is goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, who's fee may depend on appearances more than once considered.
Taking all the numbers into account and that's a fairly large outlay on transfers in one single window. The fact the club has just received a cheque for £6million will surely be welcomed by the directors as a bit of cover for the expense already paid out this summer.
However, if sources are right Leeds aren't done yet and are still looking to expand our defensive options and possibly another forward. So the money could well be in one pocket and straight out the other.
Whatever happens, the work put in this summer has been phenomenal and Leeds' squad can only reap the benefits of some extremely talented signings. Let's hope they hit the ground running come the start of August.
