Huddersfield Town spent £676,639 on agents’ fees last season.

It’s a rise from the £459,670 paid out during the club’s first campaign back in the Championship in 2012-13.

That reflects the run-off of player contracts from Town’s League I days and new long-term deals, including major signings like Nahki Wells and James Vaughan.

Town made a total of 65 player transactions (new signings, outgoings, contract renewals and extensions plus payments relating to deals done in prior years and future commitments going forward) between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, figures released by the Football League show.

QPR paid out £1,814,550, Blackburn Rovers £1,681,080 and Wigan Athletic £1,656,445.
