Ghanaian clubs Tema Youth SC and Revelation FC have received training compensation fees following Thomas Partey’s big-money transfer to Arsenal.
Partey, 27, joined Arsenal during the summer transfer window from Atletico Madrid for 50 million euros.
As a result, some significant amounts have been released by the Premier League into the accounts of teams that developed the midfielder.
Wilfred ‘Palmer’ Osei’s Tema Youth SC, which is a division one club and Revelation FC, a colts club in the Ashaiman area which falls under the Greater Accra Regional FA, are the beneficiaries.
As per Joy Sports checks, Revelation FC have received a notification for €750,000, while Tema Youth have also received in excess of €500,000.
It is understood that all parties who have played a role in the development of a player, once proven, are entitled to this development fee which is mandatory as per the English Football Association rules. The higher the value of the player, the higher the amount that trickles down.
Partey arrived in Spain as a teenager and became an important member of the Atletico Madrid squad before his 2020 summer deadline day transfer to the Gunners.
He spent nine years at Atletico, winning the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup in 2018. Partey also played in the UEFA Champions League final in 2016.
The midfielder is currently recovering from an injury which has kept him out of action since early last month.
