An insider’s guide to football contracts, multi-million pound transfers and Premier League big business
Whether it is a manager being sacked, the effect of BREXIT on the UK football industry, the signing of a new, star player, television rights negotiations, player misconduct or multi-million-pound club takeovers, lawyers remain at the heart of all football business dealings. Written by leading Premier League lawyer Daniel Geey, who has dealt with all these incidents first hand, Done Deal explores the issues – from pitch to boardroom – that shape the modern game and how these impact leagues, clubs, players and fans.
What really happens inside a club on transfer deadline day? Are football agents overpaid? Which club put a clause forbidding space travel into a midfielder’s contract? And which team’s players can never wear red boots?
Featuring insider anecdotes and expert contributions, Done Deal provides football fans with a fresh and authoritative perspective on all off-field football matters.
‘Done Deal is a testament not only to Daniel’s vast knowledge on his subject, but also to his ability to present even the most complex ideas in a clear and vivid way.’ Gianluca Vialli
‘A hugely entertaining look at the ever more complex machinations of the beautiful game. Essential.’ Raphael Honigstein, the Guardian and ESPN
