EPL clubs pay players' agents $123m



England's 20 Premier League clubs paid players' agents $123 million in one year, with Manchester City spending 14 percent of the total.

The league announced on Friday that the champions paid $16.8 million to agents from October 1, 2011, to September 30, 2012, accounting for two transfer windows.

The second biggest spenders were Liverpool, which handed agents $13.8 million but finished eighth last season and is currently 12th.

Third on the list are Queens Park Rangers, who spent 6.8 million $10.9 million but are currently winless and bottom after avoiding relegation on the last day of last season.

Tottenham were fourth on the spending list on $10.6 million, followed by Champions League winner Chelsea $10.5 million and Arsenal on $8.9 million.

Manchester United only gave agents 3$5.9 million in the last year. Alex Ferguson's side just missed out on the title to City on goal difference and are now top of the league.

The £77 million pounds was spent on 806 transactions, compared to £72 million (then $113 million) on 765 deals in the previous 12 months.
