In my humble opinion…
I don’t think that there’s anything he can do about it if you’re ready to close. If you’ve gotten that far it means that everyone has fulfilled his end of the deal and if he squaks over your profit and backs out, you could sue for breach of contract.
If you assigned your contract to someone else, you won’t be involved in the closing, the guy you asigned it to will. There is no need for him to reveal anything to the seller.
