How much Sheffield United have paid in agent fees and where they rank alongside Championship clubs

By on April 1, 2022 0

Sheffield United paid just over £3.5m in agent fees, figures released by the FA this week reveal. Only West Brom and Fulham spent more, with the latter spending £10m on their brokerage fees.

The period covers the summer transfer window and that of January which has just passed. United have signed four players on loan. Conor Hourihane, Morgan Gibbs-White, Ben Davies and Robin Olsen of Aston Villa, Wolves, Liverpool and Roma respectively, while Adlène Guedioura signed a free this summer. Aaron Ramsdale also left the club for Arsenal.

Olsen had his loan terminated earlier this year to allow him to move to Villa, with Adam Davies signing a free contract after doing the same with his contract at Stoke. Charlie Goode arrived from Brentford on loan and Lys Mousset, Oli Burke, Luke Freeman and Regan Slater all left.

The cost of the deals United made during those two transfer windows was £3,571,417. West Brom spent slightly more at £4,148,886, while Fulham spent £10,160,399. To put Fulham’s spending in context against other Championship clubs, Luton’s wage bill for the season is just £2m more.

At the bottom of the table, Hull City spent the least, paying £242,986. In total, Championship clubs have spent £44.3million over this period.
