Foxes' agent fees unveiled

Leicester paid out the fifth highest figure for agent fees during last season, according to the Football League.

The Foxes dished out a grand total of 655,710 on the middle men last year, putting them well up there with the highest-spenders of the 72 league clubs.

Only four clubs - Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest and West Bromwich Albion - paid out more for agent fees over the course of the season.

The figure represents a significant increase from the 121,000 paid out to agents by the Foxes in the 2008/09 campaign.

Over 10 million was commited to agents in the Championship last season, almost five times higher than that paid by clubs in League One and Two.

Football League chairman Greg Clarke has revealed his concern over the fees, saying:

"Given the current economic climate, it is worrying to the see such a significant amount leaking from the game.

"This year's figures demonstrate a considerable increase on those of last season and it is essential that clubs work to reduce this liability over the coming campaign."

Interestingly Blackpool paid out only 40,000 to agents in their victorious promotion season, putting them well among the modest spenders in the Football League.
