OXFORD United will not receive any money if Brentford reach the Premier League this afternoon.

The U’s sold Tariqe Fosu and Shandon Baptiste to the Sky Bet Championship club in January 2020, with the latter deal including a promotion clause thought to be worth up to £500,000.

Brentford are 90 minutes from the Premier League for the second year in a row, with play-off final opponents Swansea City standing in their way.

But Baptiste has not played enough games to trigger the clause – even though it covers his whole contract, not just this season.

The midfielder made 13 appearances in 2019/20 after joining midway through the campaign, but featured just four times this term before an injury forced him to undergo knee surgery last October.

It is the second time the 23-year-old has faced a long lay-off due to damage in that area, having been stretchered off while playing for United at Brentford in the 2018/19 Emirates FA Cup.

Fosu has featured 49 times this season, scoring four goals, but there is no promotion add-on in his deal as the west London club met his buyout clause.
