Middlesbrough has spent just £1.44m on agents over the past year, according to the FA. It means the Teessiders are twelfth among the clubs in the Championship for paying out sums to player representatives.
Considering the number of transfers and new contracts over that time, it isn’t as high a number as some would expect. They signed Marc Bola, Anfernee Dijksteel, Marcus Browne, Dejan Stojanovic, Harold Moukoudi on a permanent basis during that period.
In January, they also signed Lukas Nmecha and Patrick Roberts on loan from Manchester City, as well as tieing down the likes of Djed Spence and Marcus Tavernier to new contracts.
All off these deals would have acquired agent involvement, as well as the sales of Darren Randolph and Martin Braithwaite which have taken place since last June.
Compared to the likes of Stoke City, who topped the table having spent £5.68m on agents, along with Swansea (£5.19m), Fulham (£4.03m), Cardiff (£3.46m) and Brentford (£3.32m), Boro haven’t done a bad job of keeping the agent fees down.
