Hearts get sell-on fee as Callum Paterson joins Sheffield Wednesday from Cardiff City
Edinburgh club benefit from Scotland player’s move
Hearts will receive a percentage of Callum Paterson’s transfer fee after he moved from Cardiff City to Sheffield Wednesday.
The Hillsborough club are reported to be paying around £500,000 for the Scotland internationalist, earning Hearts in the region of £75,000.
Paterson insisted on having a sell-on clause – understood to be 15 per cent – inserted in the deal which took him from Tynecastle Park to Cardiff in 2017.
He wanted to repay Hearts for bringing him through their youth academy and turning him into a full internationalist.
After three seasons with Cardiff, the 25-year-old now begins the next chapter of his career in Yorkshire. He is also in the Scotland squad for upcoming Euro 2020 play-off and Nations League ties.
Paterson is expected to occupy an attacking role for Wednesday after playing for Cardiff in various positions, including No.10 and centre-forward.
He emerged as a right-back at Hearts but has been utilised further forward in the English Championship.
