Hi Eds got a question what sort of clauses do players get inserted into their contracts in case the team they sign for are relegated I was thinking of shelvey and Townsend for Newcastle will they have clauses to leave if they are relegated really i'm just curious to what clauses footballers can have and vice versa what clauses the club can have to protect themselves in case of relegation

{Ed002's Note - It varies club to club. Some clubs have none, perhaps because they don't expect to get relegated. Some has a % figure across the board - so all player contracts will be reduced to, say, 60%. Some have specifics (e.g. removal of bonuses, a reduced wage etc.). So very much case-by-case.}
