Not only were Crystal Palace happy with the deal that brought Scott Dann to Selhurst Park, Blackburn were happy with the "deal they struck" with Palace too.
The championship outfit might not have wanted to sell a key player in their plans but Blackburn managing director Derek Shaw knows that ultimately they had to do what was best for the club and getting the highest earner off their wage bill was a must.
With various connotations to the deal, Blackburn getting extra add-ons here and there and being covered even in the event the Palace aren't able to stay in the premier league they are content with their lot.
Shaw told the Lancashire Telegraph: 'We were not happy to lose Scott but it's been well documented that he was a Premiership-earning player and we had to try and cut that back.
'We've got some cash up front, we will receive further payments if Palace stay up, and if Palace do not stay up we are covered if they go back to the Premier League with payments. We also have payments over games.
'We are as happy as we can be with what we've got for Scott. With the sale and the money coming in, we are heading in the right direction.'
The hierarchy at Palace aren't stupid, they would have done a deal that is good for this club too so it's a deal that will, all in all, make everybody happy.
Palace will be happy to met extra payments on Dann and with his proven premier league ability now on board the chances of remaining in the top flight, which have improved dramatically under Tony Pulis anyway, get even better in theory.
All at the club will be happy to pay some of those add-ons to Blackburn in the summer as staying in the premier league will make the meeting of such payments all the more easier being part of the money maker that is the premier league.
