MK Dons are close to re-signing former Hammer Rob Hall on loan until the end of the season. If the deal goes through it will be Hall’s third season at Milton Keynes after helping them to promotion last campaign.
The 21-year-old will have the majority of his wages paid by the Dons which are believed to be in the region of around £6,000 a week. Hall scored three times in seven appearances as the Dons won promotion to the Championship for the first time in their history.
The manager had hoped to bring the Bolton winger in on a permanent deal this time, but it appears the agreement will now only be temporary. Hall left the West Ham Academy in 2013 and the Professional Football Compensation Committee set a compensation package with Bolton Wanderers for the transfer of Rob Hall. The independent tribunal has ruled that Bolton Wanderers must pay West Ham an initial sum of £450,000 with the following further additions:
• £250,000 if Bolton are promoted to the Premier League in the next three seasons
• £2,500 per appearance for the first 100 appearances (for Bolton) in the Championship
• or £10,000 per appearance for the first 100 appearances (for Bolton) if in the Premier League
• 20% of any profit made by Bolton Wanderers in selling the player to another club at any point in the future.
