Brentford due tidy windfall from Fulham's Mawson swoop

Brentford are due a tidy windfall from Fulham's swoop for Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson.

Sky Sports says Brentford are to receive £600,000 from Fulham's £15m deal to sign Mawson from Swansea.

Mawson was a youth player at the Bees before joining Barnsley in 2015 when he was out of contract at Griffin Park.

Brentford were owed compensation for him at the time, however, and under the terms of an agreement made seven months later, the West London club are owed 40 per cent of any sell-on Barnsley receive from the Swans.

Barnsley are set to bank 15 per cent of the profit above £5m from the deal to Fulham - a sum of £1.5m - with £600,000 of that heading to Griffin Park.
