The latest publication of Football League clubs’ spending on agents’ fees has revealed that United spent £121,480 last season.

The fees spent by the Iron were the highest by a considerable margin in League Two, with only £595,995 being spent by their divisional rivals in total. United made 73 transactions.

Across the Football League, clubs committed a total of £17.7m to agents during the 2013/14 season, a reduction of 18% on the previous year (£21.5m).

Championship clubs accounted for £14.7m of the total, with League 1 and League 2 clubs spending £2.3m and £0.6m respectively. Clubs committed to pay agents in 860 of the 3,355 player transactions that took place.

Four clubs did not spend any money on agents’ fees at all (Shrewsbury Town, Accrington Stanley, AFC Wimbledon and Hartlepool United) with more than a third of clubs (26) spending less than £25,000 each.
