Manchester City did not included a buyback clause in the deal that saw Jeremie Frimpong complete a deadline day move to Celtic, and that is a huge bonus for the Hoops.
According to the Manchester Evening News, City sold the defender to Celtic for an initial fee of £325,000 with an extra £650,000 in performance based add-ons, while a 30 per cent sell on fee was also included.
One clause that does not feature in the deal, however, is a buyback clause. So why is this a positive for Celtic?

Well quite clearly it is a boost for the Hoops as they do not have to worry about City snatching him back for a relatively small fee in the future.
Buyback clauses are normally included in these types of transfers, giving the selling club the option to re-sign the player should they wish too.
And often these fees can be substantially lower than what the players market value is; for example Chelsea have a buyback clause for Nathan Are from Bournemouth for £40million when the Cherries value him closer to double that.
City have also activated a buyback clause this summer which further highlights this, re-signing left-back Angelino for PSV Eindhoven for a snip at £5m when his market value was closer to £20m.
