Rams keep agents fees down
The Rams paid out £717,000 on 38 transactions between July and December in 2008 - £227,000 more than any other club in the Championship. The figure fell to £325,000 in the period January 1 to June 30 this year as spending on agents' fees fell by more than £2million across the whole of the Football League. On announcing the latest figures, Football League chairman Lord Mawhinney said: "Given the current financial outlook, it is encouraging clubs are being more circumspect in terms of their payments to agents. "In fact, clubs only committed to pay an agent 6% of the 3,700 player transactions that took place during the course of last season. This is the lowest figure recorded in the five seasons since publication of agents' fees began. "I would like to think that in pioneering the publication of agents' fees the Football League has helped bring this about."
