'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Carayol will cost 35,000

Lincoln will have to pay Torquay 35,000 for winger Mustapha Carayol after the two clubs agreed upon a fee without the need for a transfer tribunal despite being at loggerheads over the transfer all summer.

The money will be paid in stages to the Gulls, while there is also a sell-on clause included in the deal. The hastily-arranged agreement comes as something as a surprise considering the Imps were adamant they did not want to pay Torquay anything for a player who spent two years with the Plainmoor club.

But as Lincoln chairman Bob Dorrian told BBC Lincolnshire: 'We were able to put a proposition to them which, with a few adjustments, they agreed to on Monday morning - we were a way apart at one stage.

'There is a fee involved and there's appearance money and a sell-on clause. We're very happy with the deal. We think we've signed an excellent player and he hasn't cost us an awful lot of money in real terms.'

good deal for both, especially in the light of the following days tribunal decisions.
