Bates Speaking on Yorkshire Radio at the time said, 'It`s a substantial fee, it`s a good one for a 19 year old.
We get a fee some of which has to go to Bradford City as part of a sell on, and there`s contingency built in, subject on Villa`s performance.'


With the sale of Fabian Delph complete, boss Simon Grayson reveals that he has money to spend. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, 'I`m not going to let it burn a hole in my pocket, but it`s nice to know it`s there if I need it.'
