Romano: Tottenham Communicating with European Outfit over ‘Compensation Fee’

An intriguing FIFA rule that was implemented in those two nations as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine permitted international players to pursue a new club while the conflict was ongoing without getting an official transfer and price. One of the teams that was severely damaged was Shakhtar Donetsk, the current champions of the Ukrainian Premier League. Manor Solomon was lost to them twice—first on loan to Fulham and then permanently to Tottenham. However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Spurs are negotiating with the Miners to pay them a little but valuable “compensation fee.”

Tottenham Officials in Negotiations with Shakhtar for Solomon Compensation


What the ESPN Report Said

James Olley, an ESPN FC reporter, broke the news first. He claims that Shakhtar “contested the changes to Annex 7” that permitted its foreign players to leave near the beginning. The Court of Arbitration for Sport ultimately ruled against them. Their CEO, Sergei Palkin, is currently speaking with Rebecca Caplehorn, Director of Football Administration and Governance at Tottenham.

The CEO of the Champions League team indicated that they were engaged in “a negotiation process.” At this point, expecting Solomon to receive compensation is no longer a hope; it is an expectation. When the teams gathered for a friendly game in August, the first discussions took place. The Israeli player cost Shakhtar more than £5.6 million, and they are hoping Tottenham would reimburse them for the youthful goal scorer.

Solomon in England

Solomon achieved considerable success during his initial stay in England with Fulham, which led to his transfer to Tottenham. Numerous Premier League fixtures were impressed by the five goals in 24 games. In the end, the Lilywhites exerted the most effort and obtained his five-year commitment. The Israeli has only made a few appearances thus far as he gets used to Ange Postecoglou’s playing style.

Even if Shakhtar is playing in the European league this season, the young Solomon will not have experienced anything like Tottenham’s domestic title challenge. They are only one point behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, and the fact that Fulham eliminated them from the EFL Cup suggests that a league run is the team’s top priority.
