Revealed how much Newcastle United paid in agents fees in 2018/19 (Full Premier League table of fees)
Wednesday has seen the total amount of agents fees paid by Newcastle United over the past 12 months made public.
The decision was made a while ago by the authorities that all agents fees paid by top English clubs had to be made public in the need for transparency.
The period covers the last two transfer windows (Summer 2018 and January 2019) and represents all intermediary and agents’ fees paid by clubs during the specified period via the FA’s clearing account.
Remember, this is money paid to the middle men that is not just necessarily when buying players, plenty of clubs using agents to help sell players as well, especially those clubs who might be operating on only a skeleton staff…
Listed below are the official FA amounts.
All intermediary and agents’ fees paid by Premier League clubs over the past year (Summer 2018 and January 2019 transfer windows):
As you can see, Newcastle United have spent a massive £8,868,027 in these past 12 months on agents fees.
NUFC are 12th highest spenders on agents fees despite being the 20th highest net spenders last summer on signings.
These latest figures compare to £7,409,760 on agent fees between 1 February 2017 and 31 January 2018.
A truly horrendous figure of over £260m paid out collectively by Premier League clubs, with Liverpool alone paying out almost £44m!
(The agents fees total also includes money paid out when ‘work’ is done in terms of negotiating new contracts for existing players)
