This post explains the football phrase ‘Sign on a permanent deal’ which is often used when describing a transfer.
Sign on a permanent deal
The transfer window is in full swing as we await the start of the new European football seasons and this means that lots of players are moving to different clubs: some on loan for a short period of time and others on a longer, more permananet deal. If a player’s loan deal with a club has been a success then often they will buy the player on a more permanant contract (3 or 4 years) from their parent (original) club: they will sign them on a permanent deal. Has your club signed a player on a permament deal this season?
Example: Stoke City are set to sign the defender on a permanent deal after previously being at the club on a season-long loan.
Example: Juventus have signed Juan Cuadrado on a permanent deal from Chelsea after a successful loan spell at the Italian side. Eurosport.com 25th May 2017
