We’ve seen players transferred for all manner of odd things, while some fans would happy trade their left back for a Curly Wurly.
But until now, we’ve not seen a one switch for a dressing room.
Step forward Accrington Stanley, who have confirmed the sale of defender Janoi Donacien to Ipswich Town to fund theirs.
The Saint Lucian has agreed a season-long loan deal that will become permanent once his work permit application is cleared.
Owner Andy Holt said: “He came here, grafted, helped us win the league title and fully deserves his opportunity. That’s what we are about at Accrington. The fee means a great deal to us and for us, it’s going into new changing rooms.”
