Football League Agent Spending

Football League Agent Spending

The Football League has revealed agent fees for the 2012/13 season, and the U's were the eleventh highest spenders in League One.

Joe Dunne's side went through sixty-seven transactions in a season that saw a number of changes to the U's playing squad, with a host of loanees coming in as Dunne rebuilt the team.

Only Crawley and Portsmouth saw more transactions, with Pompey going through an astonishing one-hundred and ten in a complicated season both on and off the pitch.

Promoted Bournemouth spent by far the most amount of money on agents last season at £688,666, not far off being three times as much as the next biggest spenders, Coventry, with £252,256.

Crewe and Hartlepool both spent nothing on agents fees last season.
