Alves Transfer Goes Up In Price!

Last updated : 19 February 2009 By Boro Mad

Boro are still paying regular instalments towards the 18 million euros which Dutch papers claimed was the fee when the deal was struck with Alves' former club Heerenveen in January, 2008.

And with a euro now worth virtually the same as a pound, instead of the 70p or so that it was when the Alves deal was struck, Boro's increased financial commitment is clear.

The same problem applies to the ongoing payments being made for Didier Digard and Marvin Emnes, who were signed for fees of around five million and four million euros respectively last summer.
