ONE single day means York City must go to a tribunal over new signing Jake Hyde.

The 23-year-old striker, who is out of contract at Barnet, was unveiled at Bootham Crescent with his two year deal expected to be signed at the end of the month.

Football League rules mean, as Hyde is under 24, the Bees are entitled to compensation for a player who scored 27 goals in his two years at the club.

York made an offer to Barnet for Hyde but that has been rejected by their chairman Tony Kleanthous, meaning the tribunal will decide the size of the fee City must pay.

Hyde turns 24 on July 1 and York chairman Jason McGill revealed if the player, who he tried to bring to Bootham Crescent a year ago, had been born just one day later the club would not have to go down their current route in order to secure his signature.

But he said: "The rules are there. We made an offer to Tony (Kleanthous, Barnet chairman) and his valuation, or what he wanted, was very different to ours.

"The difference with this and last year is that Jake is now out of contract so, as opposed to being a transfer fee last year now we are now talking about compensation.

"There is a tribunal that decides all the factors and, based on those, they will make the decision of what the fee should be. It's not daunting for us. We had it last season with Ryan Bowman and we will see what the tribunal decides.

"We have an idea of where it is going to be pitched."

McGill said there was no animosity between City and Barnet - "You've got to try and get the best for your football club" he added - and expressed his delight at finally getting his man.

"It's fantastic," he said. "Jake has been a target of ours for quite some time now - at least 12 months - and while he was under contract with Barnet at the start of last season I did try and speak to the chairman and see if we could do a deal.

"Unfortunately our valuations were miles apart and we had to leave it. With Jake out of contract now we felt it was time to move. I am delighted that we have got Jake here."

so until he signs that means someone else could make an offer and blow it all out of the water... until he puts pen to paper he's not a york player.. but hope he does sign we badly need someone like him..

What im saying we can't count our chickens before they hatch.. even if he said he's going to sign until he does he can still change his mind and sign for another club.if he got the right offer. there's no such thing as loyalty in football anymore..

From what he's said I think it's nailed on that he will sign, it's just confirming the fee which I can't believe will be too far from York's valuation. The selling team always asks for way more than the player is worth.
Really excited about this signing, with Hyde, Fletcher, Bowman & Coulson we have a really strong forward line. I'm particularly pleased that Hyde is fairly tall and has experienced this division before. Could be one of the signings of the summer in L2.

Our club experience of tribunals has on the whole been positive with Bowman & Blair being the ones that spring to mind & the valuation whatever it is is no guarantee of performance, but it is about time we got lucky & had a prolific goal scorer.
Any news on ST sales?

I know the club wants to keep the fans interested with on going situations on transfers but this one could have waited until it was done and dusted, all we can hope the lad doesn't get nobbled.

The FA tribunal will probably try to pitch their price at somewhere between what City offered, and Barnets valuation of their player (unless they are a million miles apart). The FA have to be realistic for in todays financial climate neither club are big hitters.. The actual fee paid by York City will probably never be disclosed. It would be a blow if the deal did not go through now, but I am confident that it will. Then I will just sit back and wait for a creative/goal-scorin
g midfielder to follow Jake Hyde to Bootham Crescent,
"Please".

I agree. There seems to have been a lot of work put in on this one. City have tracked him for the best part of a year, he is talking of moving here and he seems to have his feet under the table. Without putting 'the kiss of death' on the deal I too am optimistic.
He would have to a real mercenary to walk away from this one and his demeanour does not suggest that.
I know football is notoriously fickle business but we are a well-run, well-organised and generally well-regarded club, so I think we will have our man. Let's get this tribunal over and done with and move on.

We tried to get him in during last season but their valuation for a player still under contract was either too high or more than we were prepared to pay. The player is now out of contract, he has been offered revised terms by Barnet - he has so many days to accept the offer or it is deemed to be 'turned down' - as Tom Allan - he is therefore free to speak to another/find another club but they are entitled to compensation - this will be set be the FA. Hopefully the lad wants to play for York City - from his interview he does therefore we need to pay the compensation figure - as we did with Bowman. I'm sure Nigel will look after the interests of the Club

Thursday it was reported as a 3 year deal, a day later as a 2 year deal. Maybe its 2 years with one year option, hopefully by next week its not a 0 years deal.

He has signed a contract with us, he is coming to us, just the valuation that needs confirming.
