TOWN secured a 17½% sell-on clause in the Jonathan Stead deal to Blackburn.
The figure is already looking healthy following the 20-year-old's sensational start for Rovers with goals in his first two games against Middlesbrough and Newcastle.
Sell-ons of 15% are regularly agreed, but Town got more for Stead and it means they will get 17½% of any profit should he eventually be sold on by the Ewood Park club.
Stead is the talk of the Premiership at the moment - his man-of-the-match display against Newcastle was watched by England manager Sven Goran Eriksson and Under 21 chief David Platt.
He also got Alan Shearer's shirt as a souvenir of his home debut and revealed a special twist to the night.
"I saw some Town fans in the crowd, which was great, so I gave them a special wave," said Stead, who will be listening to reports from Town's match against Torquay United at Plainmoor tomorrow (3.00).
"It has gone terrifically well so far, I'm settling in fine and the only disappointment has been Town's defeat by Darlington, but I'm sure the lads will bounce back.
"If they had been playing anywhere other than Torquay tomorrow I would have gone to watch because we've got a free weekend because of the FA Cup, but I will be supporting from afar and hoping the lads come back with the points."
Town travelled to Devon today with a squad of 18 for a four-day training camp which will also include Tuesday's match at Bristol Rovers.
Andy Booth is included for the first time in six matches after recovering from a groin injury, but Jackson is remaining tight-lipped on whether the 30-year-old top scorer will start alongside either Nat Brown or Jon Newby.
Jacob Giles will deputise for goalkeeper Phil Senior and Martyn Booty travels, although he will watch Bristol Rovers at home to Darlington tomorrow and report back to the manager.
"It's a big test of character for us tomorrow, but we are looking forward to it and going positively after the points," said Jackson, who received his Manager of the Month Award <i>(pictured)</i> from Nationwide representative Jack Taylor, the former World Cup final referee, before today's training session.
"It's a very difficult game because Torquay are one of the form teams of the division, but if we play like we can we've got nothing to fear.
"It's important we bounce back from the Darlington result, it's important we defend well and it's important we pass the ball like we are capable of. If we do that, we'll be fine."
Biggest danger will be Torquay's 13-goal leading scorer David Graham as Leroy Rosenior's side bid to extend their unbeaten home League sequence to 13 matches.
"It's a real six-pointer because of the fact we are tied on 49 points and want to keep our places in the play-off zone," added Jackson.
"Our away form in the last three matches has been excellent, though, so we've got a massive incentive to keep that going with a good performance tomorrow.
"It should be a cracking match, just like it was at the McAlpine, but we will only enjoy it if we win and take the three points."
