Doncaster fans set for thrilling ride as McKay delivers big names

Doncaster Rovers will be the home of some very exotic names in the coming two years.

Super agent Willie McKay is the middle man acting on behalf of Doncaster, charging them just £100 a week for his services, having lodged his plan with the FA on September 27.

The FA's financial regulation officer Andrew Penn wrote back to McKay in a letter dated October 6 accepting his proposals and rubber-stamping the Donny Dream, says the Daily Mail.

That contract with Doncaster and the FA means that nobody can come in or out of the Keepmoat Stadium for the next two years unless McKay says so, although he says manager Dean Saunders has the power of veto.

McKay said: "Take Herita Ilunga as an example. He's on £26,000 a week at West Ham, not getting a game and they can't get him a move. I called the joint-chairman David Sullivan and offered £1,000 a week to take Ilunga on loan. David laughed and said, 'Make me a sensible offer', so I said, 'OK, £500'.

"Anyway, eventually we agree the deal on £2,000 a week and West Ham make up the rest of his wages. We take him at Doncaster, who are no threat to West Ham, and give him a shop window to perform by playing every week.

"If he plays well and I get him a move, say to Turkey for £5m, then I'll reach an agreement with David Sullivan about the fee West Ham will receive, plus my commission, less his full £26,000-a-week salary for the period he was at Doncaster."
