Former Town striker Kieffer Moore has completed his move from Barnsley to Wigan Athletic.

The fee is reported to be an initial £2.5m rising to £3m which would net the Blues in a region of £175,000.

Town had a clause of 10 percent of any profit when sold to Barnsley for £750,000 in January 2018.

Moore is the second player over the weekend to move on and activate a windfall for Town.

Brighton signed former defender Adam Webster from Bristol City on Saturday, for a fee reported to be £20m.

The Blues are set to receive a windfall around the £1m mark from the move. It is understood Towns sell-on clause in that deal is just below 10 percent, while Portsmouth are due 20 per cent of the cash the Blues receive based on the initial sale of Webster from Pompey.

The additional windfall from Moore and Webster deals will be added to the pot from the sales of former defenders Matt Clarke and Tyrone Mings earlier this summer.

Although additional money is coming into the club, Town boss Paul Lambert isn’t expecting to see much of it: “Mings, Clarke, maybe Webster, we haven’t bought one player,” the Blues boss said at Friday’s press conference.

“I don’t know if the money has come in, nobody has told me it has come in. I don’t know.”

He added: “Whatever way those deals were structured before I came in, whenever the money comes in, it could be three years’ time down the line, four years down the line, it could be now, I don’t know. But you haven’t seen one player I’ve bought, I’ve not bought a player.”
