Greedy agent cost Quina loan move


Filed: Sunday, 3rd September 2017

The deal taking Domingos Quina to Sheffield United fell through eight hours before the transfer deadline after Sheffield United were asked to increase their offer.

The Portuguese attacking midfielder was all set to join the Blades on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day, but the deal collapsed after Quina's agent - who was also representing Watford forward Jerome Sinclair - asked for improved terms for both players.

A video, filmed by the Bleacher Report from Sheffield United's base on deadline day captured the exact moment Blades' boss Chris Wilder turned down the deal.



"We can't do that, we've agreed a deal with West Ham and we've agreed a deal with Watford," Wilder can be seen saying in response to a text message from the players' agent. "Everything is done, we're at our budget."

And two hours later, at 6pm, Wilder reluctantly accepted that both deals were off - after claiming that Quina and Sinclair's agent had demanded an additional "50 per cent" for his part in the transfers.

Disappointing news for the two players involved - especially Watford youngster Sinclair, who had already made his own way to Sheffield by train only to be told by his agent at 7.30pm that the deal was off.

"He wanted to play, he wanted to come here. So did Quina," said Wilder. "That's two lads who wanted to be here but who have been messed about by the system.

"We'll be walking out in front of 40,000 at Sunderland next week; they'll be walking out in front of 400 at under-23 games. Crazy."
