Burnley's Agent Fees 2007

The Clarets forked out 214,900 to agents between 1st July and 31st December 2007 according to the Football League's Agents' Fees Report published yesterday.This money involved a total of 16 transactions.

This is significantly up compared to last year.Burnley FC only spent 56,000 in 2006 over the same period, down from 167,910 the previous year

In the Championship, Blackpool did not pay agents anything at all (one of 19 clubs in the FL) whilst our other rivals in the North West, Preston paid out slightly more than the Clarets ie 230,000.

Leicester were the biggest spenders in our League forking out a massive 1,067,084 on Agents fees

The total agents fees for all League clubs increased 1.7m from 6.2m for the second half of 2006 to 7.9 million

League clubs however also spent a total of 42.1m on player acquisitions compared to the 21.7m spent 12 months before. This is an amazing increase of 94% and shows just how much transfer activity has increased in a year.

Not sure if this is a sign of ambition increasing at the club or an indication we are getting more & more ripped off by Agents

Surprised this hasnt led to further comment. Spending on Agents fees significantly up on 2005 and 2006. Tends to suggest we are being more ambitious but not sure, what do you think?
