Agent Fees: FA Release Figures Paid By Premier League & EFL Clubs

The Football Association has released figures of all cash payments made to intermediaries and agents by Premier League and English Football League sides.

The FA publish these payments and figures each season around the end of March in line with FIFA’s Regulations on Working with Intermediaries.

The numbers show increased payments from some Premier League clubs, alongside some reductions.

Manchester City’s spend on intermediaries has risen from £30.2m in 2021 to £35m this year, while Chelsea net spend has dropped from £35.2m to £28.2m in the same period.

Arsenal have increased their output by £2m, while north London rivals Tottenham have reduced their spending by a similar amount.

Liverpool and Manchester United’s spending has remained largely the same in both years.

The average for spending between the 20 Premier League clubs is £13.6m.

Brentford are the lowest spending club with just under £3.5m, while Watford have forked out a dizzying £12.6m, placing them ahead of the likes of Everton, Leeds, Leicester, West Ham and Wolves.
