Nathan Ferguson tribunal penned in before 2022 for West Brom

West Brom are set to finally learn what they will receive from Crystal Palace for Nathan Ferguson in the near future.

The Sun has reported over the weekend that the tribunal is finally penned in to happen before the end of 2022.

Ferguson made the move to Selhurst Park last year but is yet to make an appearance for the club after suffering from injuries.

With the tribunal set before 2022, the Albion finally look set to earn a major windfall in the next two to three months.

Palace had agreed to pay £11million for Ferguson months before he finally sealed the move, but a failed medical saw that collapse.

The young defender then saw out his contract at The Hawthorns and made the move without an initial fee being needed.

West Brom were hoping to receive that fee anyway, but given the time since that and his lack of appearances, it could drop significantly.

Significant.

The fee is expected to be a significant one, and that is the least West Brom deserve – it isn’t their fault that Ferguson is yet to make his debut.

COVID-19 is said to be the main reason behind the delay in the tribunal, so the time between the move and the payment should make no difference.

Everything is appearing to benefit the Baggies at this moment in time, which could lead to a happy camp in the near future.

Add that to the funds received for the sale of Matheus Pereira, and the financial picture could be looking very positive.

Time will tell, but it looks as though we will all finally learn the conclusion of this long-standing saga sooner rather than later.
