Is there a "creative accounting" benefit from sending players like that out on loan? As in selling them when their book values has reduced due to amortisation, so the trading loss isn't as great?
I can't be arsed working out the numbers.
Yeah there would be from a FFP point if view, providing you got the same fee in 1 or 2 years time.
In the real world the cash figure is still the most important bit.
