German term or phrase: Ablöseentschädigung
I'm thinking this is a "transfer fee" but some members of my household whose expertise in this field I greatly admire.... protested, saying it was some sort of "waiver" (release on waiver?). All google hits seem to point to transfer fee - so I would really appreciate your comments - thanks!


Here's my context:
A short letter from a German soccer club to a Canadian soccer club. The management of the German club talks about the possible transfer/move of one of their players to a Canadian club.

Here's the sentence:
"Im Auftrag unseres Geschäftsführers teilen wir Ihnen mit, dass wir bei einem möglichen Wechsel unseres Spielers XXX zum Verein XXX keine Ablöseentschädigung verlangen werden."
