In the move, first reported late last month, the Revs will receive an undisclosed fee pending completion of a standard medical examination. Reports from ESPN and MLSSoccer.com said the Matt Turner transfer fee is $6 million up front with the potential to grow to $10 million with incentives. New England will earn a 10 percent sell-on fee if the London-based Premier League club moves Turner in the future.
