Premier League clubs have revealed how much they have spent on agents fees over the past 12 months and unsurprisingly Manchester City and Tottenham head the table.

In total almost £72million was spent on agents during the period between October 1, 2010 and September 30, 2011.

It’s fair to say most of us do not like football agents, they unsettle players and get their clients to move solely so they can rake in more cash with signing on fees.

However just like estate agents, it would appear they are a necessary evil in today’s game.

Thankfully though according to Wolves Official Website we haven’t been dragged into paying such big fees in comparison to the rest of the Premier League.

Now while you might think that’s because we haven’t been signing dozens of players like Manchester City, the payments also include contract renewals, which we have done a fair bit of.

But thanks to the Daily Mail who have reported a list of all 20 Premier League teams we can see that Manchester City paid out £9,663,700 on agents, that incredibly is almost nine times higher than our figure of £1,107,918.

Tottenham paid out £7.5million, Liverpool £7million, Chelsea £6.5million, the list goes on.

We actually paid out the fifth lowest figure in the Premier League with only Fulham, Norwich, Wigan and Swansea paying out less.
