That would be the most sensible option but I'm not sure if you can actually do that within the loan rules..
From what I understand, every loan is different; each is a negotiated contract, which is why we typically never know if a player can be recalled or not (there are reasons to have no recall clauses--the receiving club might be willing to cover more of the wages if they knew they were getting the player for the year, etc.).

So these kinds of escalator (or descalator) clauses might be completely normal and expected.

Had this discussion elsewhere.

Basically, if Fulham want Dembele back on a standard 6-month loan, a recall is a no go as it is not allowed under League rules.

However, even though Dembele is a contract player, because he is under 20 he could be loaned to Fulham as a youth player. If that was the case, a recall clause can be negotiated.

However, even if he is on a youth loan, and even if Fulham agree to the insertion of a recall clause, under League rules it cannot be triggered with the first 28 days of the loan. That's not the end of the world, obviously, but if Kane were to get injured in that period Dembele would still be out-of-bounds for us no matter what.

Basically, given Fulham's determination to get him back on loan, I suspect a recall is highly unlikely

When DL plays hardball there is only one winner.....

And its not the opposing chairman, or the club, or the player.









Or either set of fans.

Interesting. There's nearly nothing about loans in the PL handbook (mostly, iirc, that a club can't loan more than two players to another club). There was more in the League handbook, but nothing as detailed as what you've said.
 
I know football adheres to the law of the jungle, but as someone with a soft spot for Fulham, I'd rather they kept their star striker this season and avoid relegation.
Trying to manipulate the deal at the last minute is typical Levy and not worthy of our club.
