That doesn't mean that's the only situation we can buy him back in though, does it? If they're not promoted can we buy him back for less?

I guess it's not impossible, but the syntax of that quote doesn't suggest it to be the case.

I think that's the only scenario in which we can enforce the buy back. There are more details in the Hull bloke's full quote.

Not sure about a same division clause. I've seen qhat the chairman said and it read to me that if we pay 10m for him, he comes back to us.

"If we're promoted, Villa will have the right to buy him back for 15m," explained Kesler.

And if they don't get promoted, it's 10m.

I don't think anybody has suggested that that's the case. Where have you seen that?

I don't think anyone is suggesting that it definitely exists, just that the phrasing of the Hull chairman leaves it open to interpretation that such a clause exists.  He's trying to "big up" his negotiating skills so it makes sense he would only mention the highest possible price we could ever pay for him.

I'm not saying we can buy him back from the Championship, I'm just saying it would be a strange buy-back clause if we couldn't, and the wording of the chairman doesn't rule it out.  He could easily have said, quite literally "Villa can only buy him back if we get promoted", but he didn't.  My suspicion is that his words were very deliberate.
