The 20 clubs in the Premier League spent nearly £130million on agents last year, a rise of £15m from the previous year.

Liverpool spent more than any other club from the period 1 October 2014 to 30 September 2015, handing out a whopping £14,301,464 on agents fees.  :ghostface:  :ghostface:

Manchester United (£13,881,814) and Manchester City (£12,429,380) with total spending for the Premier League at £129,857,560.
Five clubs spent more than £10m on agents fees, with Chelsea (£11,961,206) slightly ahead of Arsenal (£11,928,584).

The total spent in the Championship was £26.1million, £3.2million in League One and just £1million in League Two, while the smallest amount in the Premier League was the £1,620,229 spent by newcomers Watford.

Fees are not just paid to agents when transfers happen, but also when players sign new contracts.

During the period in question, there were 172 inbound transfers and loans in the Premier League, 542 new or improved contracts and 573 outbound transfers and loans - a total of 1,287 transactions, all of which could have led to an agent's fee being paid.

The biggest payers in the Championship were Cardiff (£2.8m), Fulham (£2.7m), QPR and Reading (both £2.3m).

Further down the pyramid, League One club Bury and League Two's Accrington Stanley Hartlepool did not pay anything at all in to agents.
