Had midfielder, who joined Scottish Premier side last month, played one more game for Boro club would have owed Exeter City £25,000
James Dunne scored his first goal for St Johnstone at the weekend.
The midfielder, who is on loan at the Scottish Premier side from Stevenage, came off the bench to net against Forfar in the Scottish Cup on Saturday.
Dunne joined St Johnstone late last month after making 59 appearances for Boro since he joined the club from Exeter City in 2012.
Had the midfielder made one more appearance for Boro, Stevenage would have had to pay his former club £25,000 as laid out in the tribunal that decided the fee on his move to the Lamex.

Speaking last week about his lack of games this season, Dunne told the Daily Record: “I have played 59 games for Stevenage, if I played another match then they would owe Exeter money. They couldn’t afford to pay more cash so that was that.
“So from being Player of the Year and fans’ Player of the Year last season I suddenly went straight out of the team. At first I didn’t know why but once the transfer window opened I was told I would be free to go on loan somewhere else.”
