There’s a reason for that though, as TalkSport asked former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan to explain. It’s all to do with amortisation and spreading the cost of the players over a longer period. Of course it’s a gamble on them being good – but it’s a gamble for the player too.

Anyway, Jordan explains it better than we can in the video. We wonder if this is a tactic that will catch on across the league?
