Following Bournemouth signing ex-Leeds United winger Max Gradel, and Leeds receiving around £500k in a sell-on clause put in place when they sold him, The Whites could soon see another cash windfall if Danny Rose makes the move from Tottenham to Chelsea, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Phil Hay.
@leeds09 yes, there is a sell-on clause. 10% of all profit – which will be a tidy sum. Went to Spurs for just over £1m.

With numerous outlets reporting that Rose could soon make a £15 million move to Chelsea, Leeds could see £1.4 million fall their way after selling the full-back to Tottenham back in 2007. Leeds sold Rose for a fee of around £1 million, so they are set to see around half of that come back in a sell-on clause.
Rose failed to make an appearance for Leeds United, but spent his youth career at the club so it now appears a wise decision to put the sell-on clause in place. Meanwhile at Tottenham, Rose has had a bigger impact, making 93 appearances, scoring 7 and assisting 13, including a thunderbolt debut goal against Arsenal back in 2010.
