The Premier League has published details of its clubs' payments to agents over the last year.
From the period 1 October 2010 to 30 September 2011, a total of £71,868,749.94 was spent by the 20 Premier League clubs on agents.
The amounts shown include payments made by clubs on behalf of players and there were 765 transactions during the specified period, though not all of these will have attracted an agent's fee.
The Premier League agreed in June 2008 that from season 2009/10 onwards each club would publish, on 30 November each season, the total amount it paid to authorised agents during the period 1st October of the previous year to 30th September of that year (encompassing the two transfer windows).
