The 18 deals Newcastle United paid agents fees of £8.6m on in last year
Earlier today (Wednesday) it was revealed that Newcastle United had paid a remarkable £8,868,027 in agents fees/to intermediaries in a 12 month period which included the last two transfer windows.
Newcastle’s total included in a quite atrocious £260m+ paid out by Premier League clubs collectively.
The period the figures were released for was 1 February 2018 to 31 January 2019.
In a separate document issued by the FA, they list all the deals for each club, where that club used (and presumably paid!) an agent to do work for them.
The vast majority are when players are brought in but clubs also use/pay agents to help facilitate outgoing deals as well, plus giving existing players new contracts.
All intermediary and agents fees paid by clubs during the period 1 February 2018 to 31 January 2019 via the FA’s clearing account:
Listed below are all 18 times Newcastle used agents in that 12 month period.
The 18 times agents were used by Newcastle United included:
Senior signings last summer – Ki, Schar, Muto, Fernandez on permanent deals in summer 2018, as well as the loan deals for Kenedy and Rondon.
Then also the buying of Miguel Almiron and loan of Antonio Barreca in January 2019.
Agents were also paid with regard to the sale of Mikel Merino in summer 2018 and the loan to West Brom of Dwight Gayle.
When current NUFC players agreed new contracts – Lascelles, Sorensen and Sean Longstaff.
Young players signed or given contracts – Matthew Longstaff, Longelo, Toure, Watts and Wilson.
Intermediary Transactions 1 February 2018 to 31 January 2019:
‘The information below represents all Transactions involving Clubs where an Intermediary was used from 1st February 2018 to 31st January 2019.
This information has been made publicly available in accordance with the requirements of the FIFA Regulations on Working with Intermediaries and The FA Regulations on Working with Intermediaries.’
Sadly, the clubs have no obligation to reveal how much was actually spent on each deal – so no idea of what cash was spent on each deal/transaction.
