Sheffield United to benefit from sell-on clause: financial details confirmed

Nicksoen Gomis, a French defender who impressed during a trial period and was traded to Toronto FC last week in the Major League Soccer (MLS), has an ownership share held by Sheffield United.

As far as The Star is aware, Sheffield United has not received the MLS team’s upfront payment for the defender. Nevertheless, they will be paid after he plays a certain amount of games for Toronto FC. The agreement also has a sell-on clause that will protect the Blades’ interests in the event that Gomis succeeds in Europe.

During the 2024 preseason, Gomis, a 21-year-old who was raised in the Blades academy, received permission to continue his professional development in Canada. But a concussion he suffered in the last preseason game against Los Angeles FC earlier this month forced the postponement of his Toronto FC debut. Still, it’s expected that he’ll play his first game for his new squad in early March, against New England.

The contract with the left-sided defender is for two years, with an option to extend into the 2026 and 2027 seasons. The deal will last until 2025.

When Toronto FC plays David Beckham’s Inter Miami in July and October, he might get the chance to take on strong opponents like Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez if he can establish himself in manager John Herdman’s plans.
