Deals with no fees

Deals with no fees

Figures released today by the Football League revealed that Pool hadn't spent a penny on agents fees since the turn of the year, a trend that has been in place at the club since Karl Oyston had come to the helm at Bloomfield Road.

The league suggests that no club spends over £150,000 on fees in a calendar year.

The figures also revealed that out of the 1,033 players transferred only 97 used agents, resulting in £955,059 being spent on agents.

8 Clubs in the league didn't spend a penny on agents, Colchester United, Gillingham, Hartlepool United, Huddersfield Town, Port Vale, Scunthorpe United, Walsall and of course Blackpool.

Since January Pool have been involved in nine new registrations and transfers, one contract update, two contracts have been cancelled, and a massive 15 loans, the most in the league.

barker's agent is a money grabbing sod that's why he is leaving will be interesting to see if you pay him or not, but in barker you have a top class defender

Glad we are not paying agents fees. In my opinion, some, not all, of them are scum and are purely looking for a big fat wad of cash for themselves. Well done Oyston for not allowing them to theive any more cash.
