The Telegraph reports that Premier League clubs have spent more than £67 million to agents over the past year, with both Chelsea and Liverpool paying out in excess of £9 million to middle-men.

The overall spend on agents was actually down by £3.55 million compared to 2008-9, although that was explained by the fact that there were fewer transactions in the most recent period.

Indeed, from Oct 1 2009 until Sept 30 2010, agents were paid an average of £90,483 for each transaction compared to £89,258 the previous year.

Chelsea’s spend of £9.29 million came in a year when their main two signings, Ramires and Yossi Benayoun, cost around £23 million. Michael Essien and Nicolas Anelka have also signed new contracts during the past year.

Of this year’s overall total of £67.14 million to agents, the lowest spenders were Ian Holloway’s Blackpool on just £45,000.

Surprisingly, Manchester City were only the third biggest spenders on £5.96 million, with Tottenham the fourth biggest spenders on agents at £5.36 million. In the previous year from 2008-9, Manchester City had paid out comfortably the most on agents at £12.87 million.
